Ear piece speaker and home button. replacement?

Am I to understand this correctly. I can't find how to replace my home button or ear piece speaker on the front panel. I can't even find the ear piece speaker and home button for sale. However I can buy just the front panel with no ear piece speaker and home button. Or spend more money and buy the front panel with ear piece speaker and home button. My panel is fine. I just need to replace my ear piece speaker and home button. Help me please, someone.

I noticed you never got an answer to this. Are you still having this problem?


I would also like to know the answer to this as i'm having problems finding any information on how to replace my 3GS ear piece.

I have purchased the small ear piece but would like to understand how to install it?

Thanks in advance ;)


Hi craig, it might be better if you ask your own question. This question has not gotten answered in almost a year and nobody see that you are asking. GO ahead, it is not hard to do and you'll be surprised how many smart people on here can help you with your phone.

You can find the ear speaker repair parts here:

or on ebay since they aren't offered at ifixit.

You should be able to get most of the way through from the front panel display guide.
