4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent kit, but...., 28 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: TECHGEAR - iPHONE 3G TOUCHSCREEN DIGITIZERS FRONT GLASS LENS WITH THE NEW EASY TO FIT PUSH FIT CONNECTOR FOR iPHONE 3G (8GB & 16GB) INCLUDING TOOLS TO DISASSEMBLE IPHONE 3G AND LINK TO VIDEO TUTORIAL ** EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO REPLACE YOUR FAULTY/DAMAGED/BROKEN TOP LENS/SCREEN** (Electronics)
Very good quality item that fitted perfectly and tools worked well. However, really disappointed in the reliance on a web link that led to nothing - not that I could find anyway. Even though many videos do exist on YouTube, they all seem to miss out at least one or two crucial steps.
1. Feeding the ribbon cable connector through the edge of the frame so that it is under the first connector not over it.
2. How to get the frame out if the glass comes away from it and the frame remains in place.
3. The fact that connector 3 is clamped into place on the circuit board unlike the other two connectors that are push fits. Releasing connector 3 requires the lifting of the clamp with the thin plastic tool. The clamp is fragile as is the sleeve the connector slides in to.
4. There is also a loop next to the screen connector ribbon cable which seems to have no purpose, or not one that is explained in any of the many videos I watched. If you leave it in place, poking up in the same direction as the ribbon cable, it will stick out from between the glass and the frame and stop it seating properly. If you keep it folded down, as you seat the screen, it is likely to protrude into the slot for the sim card holder, so that when you try to insert the holder it won't go in! Either cut it off, unless somebody tells you different or, fold it in half so that it folds back under itself. As I said I can see no purpose to it.
5. Finally, there is no indication of the best itme to remove the protective covering from the underside of the glass. Therefore, if you need to disturb the glass after fitting, remember to keep your fingers away from the underside, as you will have to put up with your greasy finger marks showing for the rest of the time you have the phone!
