Attempting to replace housing
would it be recommended or just a good idea to change an iPhone housing without out any experience what so ever and just going off a disassemble guide?

I wouldn't recamond it because I tried it on my own and i messed up my iphone. Just in case when you do get it open make sure you open the clip on ribbon 3 and take out the ribben.
if you mess it up there you can no longer hear from your ear speaker

I wouldnt try it if you dont have any experience dealing with small electronics. You most likely will break something, the iphone is very "fragile" inside.

If your going to do this yourself, there are a ton of vids on you tube. You can also do a google search.
If you are not 100%, my advise is to have a pro like cpjr do it. I have read so many posts from members who have attempted this and ended up screwing it up even more.
I am not promoting work for any one by any means, but cpjr and One1 are some of the best around and very reasonable too.

i wouldnt recommend unless ur really patient and have a lot of time
on ur hands. im gonna send mine in to cpjr as soon as i buy a second iphone as i dont want to void my warranty on my at&t one. my friend had a guy do his but the guy couldn't do it and messed up his camera so yeah just be careful.

If you wanna look at a good guide, check out ifixit.com, But there are alot of "tricks" that any guide just isnt gonna show you.
