So I finally got my iphone replacement case. I got the red one and my friend got a blue one.
When I finished installing the home button quit working and sound didnt work. Speaker, headphones all work, but not the earpiece.
Took it apart again to check everything. Got it back together and after a few mines the home buttom worked. But still no sound.
Also, i didnt touch the lcd part only the other parts to switch cases. I tryed hard reset, reset settings, plug headphones in few times.
What could be wrong?
Heres a pic too:

The headphones or the ear piece on the phone that you listen to phone calls with?
If its the ear piece I would check to see if your proximity sensor is working too (the thing that shuts off your screen when you put your phone close to your face on a call) and if that doesnt work either then you messed up your flex cable #3 somehow because I did the exact same thing to mine.

Im working on it now as i type, My cable 3 goes in but sticks out a little, seems to not go any further though. Is it all the way in? Does it have to go in more. Everything works except i cant hear anybody talk through the phone earpiece.

If the proximity sensor and the earpiece arent working, then its Flex cable #3 you messed up some how. If its not loose you can buy the part for pretty cheap and replace it. It isnt designed to go in all the way, it should look like its sticking out a little, so you probably messed it up.
Also, the reason your home button doesnt work is because of clearance between the screen assembly and the dock assembly.
The home button makes connection to the mainboard by "pressure fit" points (2 of them) on the dock assembly when you press the screen in.....if the screen is slightly higher than it should be (which also means the bezel it sits on is slightly raised from the housing) then it wont make that connection. Thats happens pretty easy if your not experienced with doing that swap.
