A link would be in your feedback file. The number you gave looks like a transaction number.

@sabiniano that is correct. what you purchased is strictly the front glass. From the part description of your item "This product is for a glass replacement lens and an 8-piece tool kit. It does not include a touch digitizer or LCD assembly." So looks like you got what you ordered. Now to install that, you are going to have your hands full. Take a look on here to see what you are up against. If you have never done this, chances for a good repair are low. You may need to consider the replacement of the complete assembly.

Don't be so pessimistic Mike the 3GS is a lot easier to replace as the glass is bonded only by tape around the edge unless someone else replaced the glass and glued it in another repair. So it shouldn't be that hard

@ Jimfixer easier but still a pain:-)

thank you both for your answers. that particular tutorial showed the glass with digitizer and i have not found a a tutorial involving only the glass. i don't want to waste a lot of time on a phone i don't use anymore but just want to replace it and perhaps use it for other than a phone. also the feeling of accomplishing a task, even a small one will be worth the more expensive price of buying the whole front assembly. I will just keep the glass in case i end up breaking the next one i order, which will be with the whole front assembly. again, thank you both.
