My Problem

Phone took over 24 hours to charge and would only hold the charge for a couple hours.

My Fix

The fix went really well but after I got it all put back together the microphone didn't work, I pulled it all back apart and there was a tiny plastic film over the microphone that is part of the Dock Connector, put it all back together and it works better than when we first got the phone from Verizon.

My Advice

Make sure when your installing the parts that you remove all protective films from the parts, there are a lot of them. :-)

My Problem

Broken screen

My Fix

Terrible.

My Advice

Pay someone that knows what they are doing...

My Problem

The power button on my wife's 4s broke - the common problem they have with the flex circuit.

My Fix

I worked step by step, took my time and at the end the phone repair was successful.

My Advice

A plastic spuder tool is too fragile to remove the battery. Use the heavier duty prying tool to release it from the frame. The clip that holds the proximity sensor can be tough to get out - be patient and work it carefully. Make sure you have a tool kit with a good pair of work tweezers. The ones I have worked but were a bit cumbersome to use.

My Problem

Power button stopped working unless you pressed really hard for a long time.

My Fix

A bit more "Advanced" then I originally anticipated, The Connectors are under the logic board- so it was a complete teardown and reassembly.

My Advice

Yes- do it-- once you take these things apart- there isn't much to them and there are plenty of pics and vids on the net

My Problem

Cracked panels, front and back. Bad ear piece speaker, bad power button

My Fix

The repairs went extremely easy considering I have never repaired any type of phone. I purchased an IFIXIT tool kit from Radio Shack. That is how I found you guys. My parts came in on time and repairs took place. One phone I had to only replace the back panel, super easy. The other phone had some serious issues. I could not believe I had the phone in what seemed to be a million little pieces. I had to install a new sensor cable, which I’m really glad I order because that's why the power button was not working. I had to replace the ear piece speaker to. Somehow it came apart and the cooper coiling was unraveling. I put the phone back together and its works great. Looks and sound brand new. It took about a total of three hours for both phone repairs. Now if I had to do it again I could in less than an hour. Your pictures and step by step instructions are the bomb!! The only thing I can think that would help is; on the photos you color code the screws but the screw heads are not. So when that sucker is in a million pieces those little Minion screws are all looking alike. So maybe a screw set with the same color code would be freaking AWESOME!! I would have gladly paid for them. That is what slowed me down. All in all I give you guys an A+

My Advice

Keep up the great website!!!

My Problem

Power button did not work.

My Fix

Repair was very simple, but took time & patience.

My Advice

Do not remove front facing camera when installing this part. It is not necessary & very hard to place back if removed. If the power button is not functioning properlyl it is not the actual button that's bad it is the piece behind the button that wears over time. That piece is only replaceable with the power & sensor cable.

My Problem

Initially, the power button had stopped functioning on my sisters 4S. I attempted to replace it with a part from a different online retailer, but the repair was unsuccessful. Once I figured out that the part was defective (replaced with the original power and sensor cable), I decided to order the same part from iFixIt.

My Fix

Repair went perfectly. I had completed it once before on my own 4S, so I knew my way around inside the phone.

My Advice

Always buy your parts from iFixIt directly and be very organized!

My Problem

I sent an email to check in the status of my order, I hadn't received in 9 days. I never got a response from the inquire about my purchase.

What I did get was an auto generated email asking about my repair experience....confused???

My Fix

Not so good

My Advice

Still waiting for the product the I paid for.....

My Problem

Power/lock button stuck

My Fix

The repair went smoothly even for a novice like me. Major advice is to be patient. If it is the first time you are opening your phone, beware that the rear panel might be a bit stuck and may not slide easily. The whole process took me about 40 min and I'd just reinforce that is very easy to loose both the small black ground clip on step 5 and the small grounding finger on step 25.

My Advice

My only concern is that the iFixit guide tells you to remove the front facing camera in the process of replacing the power and sensor cable and I believe this is not really necessary. I also have a feeling that the power switch itself in not the defective part in most cases. I would order the Power and sensor cable only and try that first and save the $4.95 of the power/lock button.

My Problem

Ear speaker waas broken, touch screen was SOOO cracked, power button broke

My Fix

The screen cable broke when i pulled it out of the bag. iFixit sent me a replacement. Otherwise everything went just fine.

My Advice

Dont remove the power button if you don't need to replace it. The button is likely to NOT work anymore if you remove it. There's a little black plastic pin between the metal button and the clicking part of the button that goes away if you unscrew it. I tried to glue it back in place but that didn't work.
