Anyone replaced a screen themselves ?
Where was the best place to buy from ?
not sure. I smashed my iphone 4 screen yesterday. my phone is aout of warranty. aplle at doncaster replaced mine for free. might be worth trying them first.
Gave me a new phone!
I usually buy my screens/replacement parts from the US. I've fixed a few phones now. Is it just the glass or is it the digitizer too?
Just the glass, do you have an ebay link or store you use ?
It's an Iphone 3GS 8gb
I found some but they say they only suit a 3GS 16gb or 32gb ??
easy to chage they sell them on ebay complete piece. Remove the facia and put on replacement
very easy to do
Got a replacement front end from an Aus distributor which should arrive monday. I'll let you know how it goes.
I've replaced the digitiser and glass before and considering the effort, for a few $ more I think the front end set me back $80 it willtake me 5mins to replace not 1hr.
Just bought this for a mate.
Bargain, and comes with a data cable! Very easy to replace as well. Takes about 15mins.
It says :-
I assume it will work with the 8gb version ??
get that one mate its easier to change and worth the exyra few bucks
basically u need to take out your LCD screen and pop in in and put back on iphone
Here's a tutorial on how to do it.
So i wouldn't need to worry about the heat gun for that one Wookie ?
shame about the delivery time.
Shame it so much more expensive than ebay.
No heat gun mate, stuff the heat gun crap its a waste of time dude and not worth the hassle.
Its alot easier this way, within 10 min u have changed your whole front facia. I have one here that has a few scratches on it if screen you want to buy of me... if your desperate anyways
Yeah that's what i'm thinking no screwing around with heat guns for not much more, i just need next week or two, and worried about the shipping delay on that one, wondering if there is somewhere else i can get one from ?
I really just need to very from facia, as it has scratches all over it, the actual LCD screen is fine.
That the link. I got the front panel assembly. None of that heat gun stuff, just a couple of screws and replace.
Bought 3g version of this screen, installed it and worked fine for about 4 days.
Now touch screen does not work at all, tried reinstalling again/restore checked cables a few times still no joy. Any ideas ? thinking maybe dodgy screen ?
