Broken 3g Front Panel

by colljunk

My Problem

Phone was dropped twice breaking the front panel glass at the top and the bottom

My Fix

The repair was easy, however getting all of the old glass and adhesive off was a little tedious because the front panel was shattered. The online step by step by was right on the money. The total repair time was maybe a little more than an hour.

My Advice

I did not read well enough when buying this kit. I did not purchase the front panel kit because I already had the tools and assumed that was the only difference. In my haste to order and get the phone repaired I did not order the adhesive and was left to cut my own two sided tape pieces. This worked for my application but surely the already precut adhesive would have made the process much nicer - outside of that the online guide is spot on and the repair is very easy for a competent person.
