    Well what happened is i dropped the phone and the case cracked off when i was drunk so there was really nothing i could do bc no insurance etc, so i just figured lets throw a case on there and see if it works again, and it did...

    otherwise if it didnt i would just buy a new phone.

    Good call...you could have lied to Apple saying "It broke when I pushed the home button!" and get a free replacement...But meh, whatever floats your boat.

    Very nice. How does the new housing feel? Also, were you able to get everything to get back in so it looks professional? I want to do this eventually, but was a little nervous about buying those from eBay.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Ya quality is just the same as orignal housing. I used all old buttons etc just basically change out the back so it all feels really well and looks/feels factory. It was nice to take it apart and see how easy battery replacement is.

    Did the same thing myself, took me over 6 hours to do because of a few little screw ups on my part. What an absolute pain in the ***** it was! Worth it though. Had a minor problem where the metal bezel doesn't fit completely flush with the housing but it's hardly noticeable. Just make sure you know what the hell you're doing before attempting this.

    I need to get a metal case because yea...the plastic housing just isn't cutting it anymore.

    ^^ Be careful though, if you do all metal, then you will lose signal...

    looks like a dudes hand, and in that case this **** is pretty damn gay real men might wear pink, but a pink iphone is pushing it

    did you buy a complete kit and only use the back cover from it as i`ve just changed the digitizer on mine and noticed the back is starting to split from the bottom where the charging port and upwards

    regards

    Pretty professional job , Was it hard to do? Have been tempted to fit a blue case on the back.

    I am not a fan of pink. I love only black color in my iphone. I used various cover in my phone once. But now I like to use it without any casing.
