My Problem

My phone was having trouble charging. Had to hold cable "just right".

My Fix

Everything went well with the repair and my phone was fully functional afterwards. However the next day my touch ID stopped working and I haven't been able to figure out why. Not sure if it is related to the repair. Anyway, my phone now charges correctly.

My Advice

Take it slow. Make sure you have something to hold the screws and small parts with. I used a piece of packing tape attached to a paper plate.
