    Well my first thought is why the hell would you take apart your iPhone. If there are ever any issues take it to Apple to get it repaired. That way it is done professionally and it won't void your warranty, which you have just done.

    To the OP, not even sure what you are saying. But it sounds like you are screwed.

    your first post is confusing. It appears you said you put it back together wrong and then don't say what exactly you need help with.

    Oh sorry about that yes I put the phone back together and I'm using it fine just my lighting does not work. I attempted to adjust the brightness but that did not do anything and when I'm talking on the phone the sencor that makes the screen go dark when covered right next to the mute button does not work. Thanks for the help.

    it seems like your only option is to take it apart and put it back together right

    Right that's what I plan on doing I was wondering if there is a sensor like the home button if the screen is not attached to the main part the home button will not work I'm wondeimg which wire is the light sencor connected to I think it's #2 and if maybe there is a trick to it. Like the home button

    Not many people here have experience taking the iPhone apart. I'm not sure you'll get the type of support you want here.

    yeah, we tend to follow step by step guides carefully. I took apart a phone for work (needed to destroy it) and I would have trouble putting it back together if I had needed to.
