Repair Your iPhone Screen On The Cheap

Don’t shell out a pile of cash to get your iPhone screen repaired. This detailed guide will help you replace the screen on your iPhone 3G on the cheap and with little fuss.

Earlier this year we shared how a 10 year old boy repaired his dad's iPhone for $US22. If you read over the instructions there and wished for a more text-heavy and detailed guide on what screw goes where and what cable attaches back to what, Make magazine has just the guide you're looking for.

Load up the PDF at the link below for detailed instructions including replacement part numbers and disassembly tips. Have a site or collection of repair guides to share? Let's hear about it in the comments.

  • My 3gs home button recently died & I was looking @ $200+ to replace it from apple.. I did a little research & managed to fix for under $10.

    It feels good to have done it.. In today’s consumer culture it is far to easy to throw some money @ fixing your gadgets without thinking about how easy it is to save the cash & reduce your trash!!
