It was totally broken.
One of the managers at work has a daughter who had unfortunately shattered her iPhone 4. I had already repaired his iPhone 5's screen within the past year, so he knew I was reliable. His daughter is young so I wanted to try to get the part as quickly as I could. That's one of my favorite parts about . . .
Well to start off, when I received my parts the 5s lighting connector and the 6 display assembly looked good, were sealed and looked like new parts should, but the iPhone 4 display assembly didn't looked like a used part, with what looked like a make shift screen protector on it, and upon further i . . .
No touch response to bottom 1/3 of screen.
I had an iPhone 4 CDMA (Verizon), the bottom of the screen (where you swipe to unlock) would no longer respond to touch. Ordered new screen (screen and digitizer are attached to each other), and followed the guide. I would suggest looking at the sub-pictures . . .
Like a doofus, I dropped my iPhone on the pavement and the screen shattered. I had to use it for a week with clear packing tape on it, it was quite ghetto. I ordered the back panel plus the screen replacement kit from iFixit.
The screen replacement was long but it worked. Took my about 90 minutes.

My husband dropped his iPhone, and the screen shattered.
I ordered an iFixit package to repair the screen. I watched the iFixit video and had the step by step instructions right in front of me. It took some time and patience. The iPhone I was repairing was slightly different than the one in the ex . . .
I'm on bike tour from Arizona to Tennessee. I hit the apparently infamous loose dog section of New Mexico, got chased by a large snarly boxer, and was so scared that I lost my balance and fell very hard. One of the repairs I had to make aside from my bike, equipment, and arm, was my cracked screen!

LCD had a large 'dead' area. Usable but ugly.
Intense but successful. Suggestions on keeping parts organized were VERY helpful. In the 'iPhone4_Display_ReplacementGuide.pdf picture for step 18 (Lift the grounding clip) confused me. I keep trying to pull the shiny part (under the thumb).

My daughter's friend's phone. Once she dropped it and this time another friend using it dropped it. I had to replace the front display both times. We have a STURDY case on order now. I even had to replace the Home ribbon cable this time.
Fantastic thanks to the iFixit guide. I took my time and it was . . .
I dropped my phone face down in the driveway...of course I new the result before I picked up the phone. "So this is what it's like to have a broken front screen." I didn't like the broken glass feeling on my fingers as I was swiping the screen. I knew I needed to fix it ASAP. iFixit is my go to . . .
