    I Have done it numerous times as well as replacing the LCD .. It's actually not that bad but can look scary .. Just map out the screws in order don't rush

    I completely agree, 3cit. I read the article Ally posted a few days ago about replacing your home button. I am very tech savvy and would rather eat my iPhone than try to swing that repair. I have successfully taken plenty of gadgets apart but, aside from replacing my battery door, my iPhone will not be one of them.

    You sir are truly impressive. You didn't tear any of the super
    Flimsy connectors, or have problems getting out the glued in battery, or strip any of the screws of mess up your wifi connection???
    and it fit nice and snugly back together when you were done???
    Do you have special tools?

    If you take your time you won't the tools to use are a plastic pry bar tool and some small Phillips screw drivers these are provided when you buy a new part or screen .. The connectors just pop on and off if you don't use massive force you won't break anything .. It all gos right back together as designed ..

    The battery has a pull tab to lift it from the glue of u pull and use the plastic tool it will separate

    I actually had a harder time with the back casing of a 3GS than a 4 both I was successful at both

    Oh and I counted the 4 has about 27 screws that you remove to replace the screen lol

    BlackBerrys are no picnic either! Actually, taking them apart isn't too bad it's just avoiding damaging the device as you do it and more so as you put it back together. It SO easy to mess things up!
