How can I make sure I don't get my replacement glass in backward.....because my focus is still gone. I'm devastated because I purchased this phone specifically for the camera to take pictures to upload to my eBay account. I worked for almost a full year before I could afford to buy this camera phone and I purchased it outright from straight talk. I own my camera and it is not insured. I followed your directions to replace my lens and now I'm worried I might have it in backward. How can I tell if the lens is in place incorrectly? By the way, my phone has never been dropped. It has been protected by an otter box since its purchase. My lens seemingly self-imploded. Just the strangest thing. Other than the lens, my camera doesn't have a scratch on it! Thank you for any help. Molly
