How to remove iPhone display assembly

After replacing a friend's iPhone screen, I found that I needed to reseat some display cables, but I couldn't get the new display back open. My suction cup would come off before the display would budge. Does anyone know another way?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

At the Headphone Jack corner, just above the Headphone Jack port, the front screen frame has a very thin area which can accommodate a thin pry tool. The tip of a razor blade could be used. Carefully insert the tip down between the iPhone frame and the screen frame about half a mm, and pry up the screen. Be careful not to damage either frame. Look at an old screen to see this area.

Thanks! I tried that, and it worked, but the display only moved a tiny bit... Would I put a pick in to hold the display?
