Answer to: metal pin in housing by the power switch - replacement methods?you will need 3 things, a small pair of side cutters, i mean small, a 6 inch screw driver and the small iphone pentalope screw driver. to remove: place aluminium casing on its back on a flat surface. you can see the pin. gently grip the pin using your small side cutters from the bottom of the pin place your 6inch screw driver under the cutters and use the cutters as a falcrum the pin will lift out gently. to fit: use your small pentelope screw driver and gently (using a screw motion) open the hole closer to the top, this will give the pin a bit more room and wont break the small casting when tapping the pin in. tap the pin in gently until the top surface, this take in total around 1.5 minutes to do from start to finish. good luck.
Answer to: Does anyone else have a bent iPhone 5?iphone 5 came in, customer tried to put in their own digitizer, but broke that too, after careful checking it was noticed the entire aluminum frame was buckled and more in the region of the volume buttons, this is a defect and needs to be addressed correctly. just place a flat edge (simple ruler will suffice) on the flats and see what i mean. a sturdy metal frame with aluminum casing would have been better, i would even buy a nice stainless steel one if they had it. and if anyone can locate the waterproof seal please let me know........................:(
