    So i bought a focusupply frame online... Brought it to a local so-called expert to put it on my iphone.. Ended up a disaster.

    Is this frame still usable? It's missing the top sleep/wake button pin

    Any help would be appreciate! I really like this frame's color combination (silver and black glass)

    Thanks!

    (He apparently tried to glue a pin in or something because looks like he's so unexperienced with the iphone 5 he didnt know the little "pin" that is now lost which came with the frame was for the top..)

    lol - well as long as you don't mind signal loss from their frames, you should be okay, there's no reason the frame can't be used

    Well I just bought a focus frame and I had the same issue, if the frame isn't cracked where the pin is inserted you can use a metal earring back measure it and clip it off insert and good to go. I had the same issue and I don't know about the signal loss. As far as the frame I received from last week in blue has no signal loss compared it on 4g right next to a factory setup both getting the same signal. So maybe they have it sorted out now?!?!

    The hole for the pin is actually cracked looks like the unprofessional repair guy tried to insert in a screw or something then tried to glue something up (hence the dirty brown thingies around lol))
