My Problem

From my previous repair story of replacing the battery in a bum iPhone I got from a friend, I found out the dock connector was the real issue.

My Fix

It was really straight forward. The steps were clear and I went through them fairly quickly. When I finally got the part installed I put "everything" back together. (Everything is in quotes because I forgot to reinsert the Home button cable into the socket.) I tried hitting the home button to make sure everything worked. And it wouldn't go Home when I hit the button. I went through the repair steps in my head and suddenly realized I forgot something: the Home button. I took it apart again (with much more confidence and ease), placed the ribbon in the socket, reassembled the iPhone... and voila! - a completely functional iPhone!

My Advice

I was nervous at first. The guide had a lot steps. And it sounded like I could cripple the iPhone if I pulled too hard on some of the cords/attachments. But don't sweat it. Follow the guide. Keep track of the parts and screws. You'll do great! iFixit ftw!

My Problem

When I spoke on my iPhone 4, people on the other end of the line could barely hear me. I thought the main microphone could be defective.

My Fix

This was the second time I took this phone apart. Previously, I replaced the battery and the home button. Unfortunately, during this repair I broke off two of the four EMI fingers on the speaker assembly. Perhaps they were already fatigued from my previous repair. Fortunately, everything else went together OK. The phone works and the microphone problem is fixed. I'm not sure if the loss of the two EMI fingers has degraded the phone's performance, but it seems to work as well as ever. The repair took me about 2.5 hours.

My Advice

Be careful when reassembling the speaker assembly. The EMI fingers are remarkably brittle and delicate. Also, use a muffin tin or a tray with multiple compartments to hold all of the tiny components in the order they are disassembled. This makes reassembly much easier.

Be very careful with the mic. Take your time. I am so happy that I fixed it.

My Problem

It wasnt charging...after I replaced the battery I knew it was the dock connector....problem solved.lol

My Fix

Easy and smooth...the step by step on the website was very helpful

My Advice

Maybe shipping those parts in a small box instead of a padded envelope...thought it was broken cause the mail man shoved it in my tiny mail box...bit it wasn't! Just food for thought :-)

My Problem

My iPhone broke in the back

My Fix

chage this part

My Advice

....

My Problem

The problem was that the dock AKA "Port" did not charge anymore and also had gunk built up in there that was messing things up. So upon finding this site I decided this was the place to go and boy was I right as the part was an exact match which made the repair very easy for the do DIY person. I highly recommend this site to anyone who is mechanically inclined !

My Fix

No problems at all !

My Advice

If you need a part this is for you no imitation stuff here !
