the soldering iron tip i was using is super worn (fat/not pointed anymore, lol) and really needs to be replaced. but i was trying to knock this out super quick today. ive had this 3gs with a dim lcd sitting here for a while now and i was curious to know if this was going to fix it. i bought the phone like that. i assumed it blew from someone changing the digi on the device since it was a new digi.
replaced. with the worn iron tip the only way i could get it soldered properly was to turn the coil a little bit. its a tight fit in there:

I fell like when your really into a TV show and it's getting to a really good part and you lean forward in your seat and then the news guy comes on a says " we interrupt this broadcast for breaking news ", but it turns out it's not really anything important.
So, what happened? Did it work? Did it explode? Did it morph into a hot chick?

I have a 3gs with no backlight. I bought the coil, but have no experience soldering on a board. Where can I take it to have it done? Someone told me to go to a TV repair shop, but the ones I've called don't want to do it. Any suggestions, and anyone know how much this should cost to have done?
Thanks for your help!

Can you share some tips? I see you cut some of the metal frame to make room. Where did you get the part?

ifixit does it the same way. they removed the piece of the frame. I do it without removing the frame though.
