Can I take the screen out, without turning it off?

i can't turn of my iphone since the screen and touch doesn't work, so i opened it anyways, i took the screen out, but th phone is still ON, if i hit the Mute switch th phone vibrates indicating the vibra call mode ON, but the day after,it stopped doing it, so im little afraid, if i killed it by leaving it on without the screen, or the battery died, i bought the screen already might be here in 15ish days.

this is more a informative question that may help others in case they do such thing.

but if somebody knows about it would help me calm my nerves as well haha

thanks.

Once iPhone is open, just disconnect battery with plastic tool or finger nail.

Yes you can but there is a risk of you hurting yourself (small electric shock) or a greater risk of the phone being damaged with contact of water since the phone is on. Just make sure that the exposed motherboard does not get into contact with anything so that no extra damage is done

From my experience I want to say that it turned OFF because the battery discharged, this happened to me a couple of times, but after charging phone with either the lighting cable or a battery-case I noticed it still worked.

Now, the advice to you (if you ever do it again and you have no way to turn OFF the iphone) or to someone else who cannot turn OFF the iPhone 5 before opening it or changing the screen is that:

You do it REALLY careful, and you do the process of opening it the proper way (no more than 90degrees) then take out the little lid covered by the three(3) screws which covers the cables from the screen.

After you are done with this, then you should move to the battery connector on the lower part, take out the two(2) bottom screws, then disconnect the battery from the logic board.

Then you know that the phone is OFF, and don't forget to connect the battery and place all the lids with their proper screws after you are done working on it and before you close it.
