Shattered the glass on your iPhone 3G or 3GS, or have a touchscreen that has stopped responding, and wondering how easy a screen replacement is to DIY? Well, you're in luck -- a screen replacement is a relatively easy repair to perform. You'll just need a few tools and a new digitizer assembly to make your broken iPhone 3G or 3GS good as new! This repair can also fix an unresponsive home button as well.
If you've smashed the back of your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s, a replacement is fairly cheap and costs far less than a new iPhone. Not only that, this particular iPhone repair is one of the simplest of them all. The process is the same for both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. Replacing the back panel also fixes any issues you may have with a hazy camera or cracked lens since it's built in to the back panel. So if any of these issues sound like you, follow along and we'll walk you through.
While manufacturing problems have reportedly caused delays in Apple's own white iPhone 4 rollout, enterprising do-it-yourself (DIY) types, armed with tear-down guides and replacement parts from China are taking matters into their own hands.
