My Problem

The bottom microphone would only work intermittently so I could hear people who called me but after a few seconds, they could not hear me. Eventually, it stopped working altogether.

My Fix

Ordered a new dock connector (which has the microphone attached) and smartphone repair kit and watched the video a couple of times and read the instructions a couple of times too. The battery needed some prying to get it out of the glue, and the home button ribbon cable is so tiny, it took a few tries to get it together properly. Also the main ribbon connector took some patience to get it seated properly. The whole process took about 30 minutes because I was being extremely slow and careful. SUCCESS!! It fired back up and now works perfectly. Although a bit daunting to start with, I now look back and it seems like the easiest thing to do. Great instructions - anyone can do this!

My Advice

Watch for plastic sheet tabs that have to be peeled off the new part.

Order the repair kit - it has all the tools you need and the little boxes for all the screws really help.

The home button ribbon cable is small and hard to see. It looks like it lays on top of the connector, but it actually slides into a minuscule slot on the side opposite the little pop-up clamp. Tweezers were a must.

Don't force the main ribbon cable connector back on. When it's carefully aligned it will snap into place and you'll know you got it right by the little click you'll hear.

My Problem

I dropped my iPhone and cracked the front and rear glass panels.

My Fix

The repair went fine but took longer than expected. It took me a little over two hours to replace both panels. The instructions were very well written and easy to follow. If I have to do it again I'll be back!

My Advice

The screws are really small, make sure that there is a method used to place all the screws/parts removed so that they can be put back in the same location. I used a white paper towel and positioned everything removed so that it was easy to assemble.

My Problem

Dropped my iPhone and shattered front glass.

No warranty and upgrade on the phone was too expensive.

Repair estimate for glass alone was $70.

My Fix

I ordered the repair kit which included tools to make the repair. I also ordered replacement battery.

Received both within 3 days.

No instructions came with the kits.

Used the instructions found on u-tube but still had to guess at a couple of steps because a couple of the components were not the same on my phone as depicted in the video.

Followed the instructions and completed the repair in a little under 4 hours.

My Advice

Read instructions then read again and read again.

Follow the instructions to the letter.

Take your time.

Recommend using a lighted magnifying glass because some of the screws are very small, particularly if you are over 70 years old and have vision issues.

If you like a challenge then go for it.

My Problem

I was the first to break my screen when my iPhone 4 fell out of my lap and onto the ground. My son dropped his on a band trip. When I mentioned the broken screens to an Assistant Scoutmaster, he told me to order the parts and he would replace them. I did so and then he encouraged us to replace them ourselves by using the ifixit video tutorials.

My Fix

I had two screens. It took me a moment to realize that my Verizon phone was different but thank goodness ifixit had an easy way to look up my model and step-by-step guides. My first attempt, I pulled too hard on the LCD wire and it broke. I used the second screen and viola, it was fixed. Ooo it was so empowering. I felt like I was ready to work on my son's phone. Ordered the parts from ifixit this time and they came quickly. Took less than an hour for his repair. Both phones fixed for far less than it would cost to repair 1 at a retail location. I feel like I should be on a Holiday Inn Express commercial.

My Advice

I would read all the instructions first and then start. I was much better the second go around. Also, make sure you get the magnetized screwdrivers. Those screws are so tiny. If you lay a towel down on your work surface, the screws are less likely to bounce off the table to the ground,avoiding the whole Where's Waldo scenario with the missing screw.

My Problem

Vertical lines on the screen on my 4s.

My Fix

Replaced the screen assembly, I needed to turn all but two screws in my phone. Mostly smooth, I pulled a little too hard on the upper mic cable (part of the headphone jack assembly) without enough prying and tore the cable. After he parts come in for that I need to open it again. Minus my mistake, everything else went perfectly.

My Advice

iScrews tray, Anti Static tray, and a professional pentalobe screwdriver are essential.

My Problem

Teens are active, iPhones are fragile.

My Fix

Want to be the coolest mom around? --iFixit.

My Advice

Be sure to have the kids pay for their own repair parts: if not in money, then in kind. While I fix the phone, laundry gets done...

My Problem

This was my daughter's phone and she had dropped it repeatedly, but continued to use it. Finally, it got so bad that she couldn't use it anymore, so we traded it in for another phone. Having used iFixit previously to repair my iPod Classic's display, I thought it would might be worth it to see if I could do the same for the phone.

My Fix

The process took much longer than the guide suggests--probably a total of about 4 hours or more. Although getting into the iPhone 4 is a LOT easier than the iPod Classic, every step was very tedious. There are many very tiny screws and keeping track is of utmost importance. I taped the small parts down to a piece of paper with the step number written next to it and colored coded where necessary.

There are a couple of minor steps that are missing from the guide, but addressed in the comments. When everything was back together, the metal clip covering the antenna connector from step 5 was left out. Somehow, I had it taped to my step 11. I had to do some internet searching to figure out where it went. I found it here (http://youtu.be/j6CcxjUKqUY?t=1m17s) at 1:17.

Also, there is a very small contact point on the tip of the wi-fi antenna. Pay VERY CLOSE attention to this when removing it. Mine got lost and I never knew it. Fortunately, there is an iphone repair service here in town that looked at it for me and spotted the problem. He had an extra wi-fi antenna and replaced it for me.

So, the process was long, tedious, sometimes confusing, but it saved me quite a bit of money had I sent it or taken it somewhere else for repair.

My Advice

Document the teardown process in as detailed a manner as you possibly can. Be patient, work slow, and keep track of everything as you go. If at all possible, read through the entire process before you begin, and then follow the steps meticulously.

Have fun!

My Problem

My screen was broken and falling apart.

My Fix

Everything went smoothly. The directions were clear and easy to follow. The new screen looks great AND works great!!

My Advice

Keep track of the pieces and where all the little tiny screws go!

I have used ifixit several times and have been very pleased with the results. Shipping is fast and the product quality is top notch.

My Problem

My son's screen started to flicker and fade out after powering on the iPhone.

My Fix

The easy to follow guide was very well laid out and understandable. We had everything laid out and ready for the repair, including the iFixit- Magnetic project mat. The kit included everything we needed, except maybe it should also include the "iPhone 4/4S Liberation Kit". We used the original pentaobe screws and were very careful in replacing them back.

My Advice

Be careful to keep the screws safely away from roaming elbows...once they drop...they are GONE. We used a magnetic screw tip for some of the screws to place back in, they are very small and at a tough angle.

My Problem

First of all my battery was long since overdue for its demise. While researching the repair I discovered one of my speakers was non-functional as well.

My Fix

It went very well. My only problem was with one of the internal screws (phillips head) which I wound up stripping. This required a bit larger of a screw driver tip and some moderate pressure to remove and replace. I fault the screw itself rather than the ifixit tools or advice.

My Advice

I suggest watching several videos on Youtube to watch others in action before taking on. This is especially helpful to see the difficulties to be encountered before hand, such as the adhesive on the back of the battery itself. It is quite strong and I also broke the plastic pull-tab from the factory, nevertheless, with careful prying at the edges with the provided tools, I was successful.
