not enough instruction for me

I have a new iphone 4g from verizon. of course we broke the front on the second day. I did some research, and it did not appear that hard to change out the glass. I order a kit, the kit came, but apperantly apple changed the screws to a kind of star screw. Reseached that problem and got the right tool. Today I dove into the job, found the instructions not to be exact, but got it apart. Now I find the the front replacement glass is not right. It does not have the, (i think it is called a digitizer) plate with it and the screws placement tabs are not right. So now it is back to the drawing board. I have another glass, but when I tried to seperate the glass from the digitizer, the digitizer fell apart.

Can I get the right front with the digitizer with it???

It sounds to me like you got either the wrong part or the individual parts. Watch out for "interesting vendors" that swear it can be done in separate pieces. Here is what ifixit has to say "It is a complete part with the LCD and the glass fused together. It includes the speaker grill and front facing camera lens installed.

The glass and the LCD cannot be replaced individually as they are inseparable. Don't believe the other companies that try to sell you them separately." Do a search for the iPhone 4 screen on here and you will see that most attempts to install or to separate it have failed. ifixit has the assembly here and I am certain it is also available on other places. Depending on your location, a good Google search will help you with that. Good Luck.
