My iPhone 3g was broken for about 4 months before I found this item and I am so glad I did. I had taken it to the Apple Store when I broke it and they confirmed that it was the LCD that was broken, but would be $200 to repair it.
I ordered from Zeetron and it took about a week to get to TX. The box included the screen sealed in an airtight pouch, a free screen protector and a baggy including: a Philips screwdriver, flat head screw driver, 3 different prying tools, a guitar pick and a suction cup.
After reading the reviews I wasn't sure I would get the tools or not, but I did from Zeetron. If you've got a good small eyeglass screwdriver I would recommend using it over the free plastic one, but the prying tools and suction cup came in handy.
It took me about 40 minutes to complete everything, but I was going ultra slow and taking my time watching each section of the YouTube video as I went. The 3rd wire is tricky because the video doesn't show how to...
Unless your a plastic surgeon, your going to break this thing in less 5 minutes trying to install it. Do yourself a favor and buy the full screen assembly including the home button for this phone. This lcd is super fragile and will require you to use a heat gun to remove the old digitizer to stick onto this one. Then, you have one chance to stick the digitizer on top of this lcd perfectly or you will break the new lcd trying to get it off to restick it again to the digitizer. It's much faster and easier to just buy the full screen assembly... It may cost you 20-30$ more but you will repair the one in half the time and won't break anything. I give it 5 stars because this product does work fine... But just be ready to be extremely delicate with this screen and the installation. Also, if your using android, go download the app IFixIt. This app will show you step by step instructions on more electronic repairs/ phone repairs then you have ever seen. It comes with videos also to point you...
I ordered this replacement LCD screen for an iPhone 3g from Zeetron after I broke my previous LCD while attempting to remove dust particles that had gathered between the LCD and the Touch Panel. I had followed some poor instructions that told me to pry the LCD from the bottom of the touch panel, when in fact, and as detailed in Zeetron's instructions, you should insert a screw driver and lightly pry the screen from between the metal brackets on the side. Be delicate when replacing your screen and make sure to view Zeetron's instructions before attempting to replace your LCD.
I ordered the screen on a Sunday, it shipped from NY the next day, and I received it in IL 4 days later. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had not only sent me the replacement LCD, but tools to replace it, and a free screen protector. It seems they really want you to be happy! I actually took about an hour for me to install the new screen, but that's because I was super careful and watched...
