This replacement front glass and digitizer worked perfectly. The glass arrived well packaged and with pre-cut adhesive tape. This product does not come with instructions, but step-by-step instructions with pictures can be found [...].

It was not very difficult to install, but you need the right tools and you need to be patient. The whole process took me about an hour. The three things you will need are a phillips #00 screwdriver, an equally small flathead screwdriver, and a hairdryer.

The gentleman who gave this product a poor review is correct that this product does not come with the rubber gasket. However, no replacement glass from any company comes with that. It's actually part of the plastic frame that you will be attaching the new glass to with the adhesive tape. It can be difficult to remove the broken glass from the plastic frame, but if you use the hair dryer to loosen the adhesive on the broken glass, it should not take you very long to remove it and the rubber gasket will be just fine. I used the small screwdriver and a razor blade. Take your time.

Something else worth mentioning is that this glass comes with 5 protective films instead of just 2 (front and back). I was really impressed. You peel off a different protective film for each step of the reassembly process. That way, you don't get any dust, hair, or particles trapped in between your lcd and your glass.

This product is well made and I cannot tell the difference between it and my original one from Apple. If you can follow instructions well, this is the best and most cost effective way to fix your iphone glass.

Yes this is an APPiE product, not a "real" Apple piece. Did you really expect to be getting a real OEM part for 9 bucks?

Regardless, it did the job and looks the stuff. My Father gave me his old iPhone 3G after he dropped it from his truck and smashed the glass. I ordered this and it came in way ahead of the expected delivery date, so I had it before my Dad could even ship me the phone. After a few hours of watching videoed instructions on how to remove the screen (YouTube)I got it done and the folks at the AT&T store said they couldn't even tell!

If I had to do it again I'd by the one with the plastic frame along with the glass, it's a few bucks more but the hardest part was getting the old broken glass off the silly frame without bending it all to hell. If I had that part it probably would have taken me about 20 minutes to replace it.

As a word of caution, the screw driver you get with this kit is too big for the internal screws so make sure you have a really tiny screw driver and a magnet to stick them to. I started this project sitting on the couch and spent a good half hour trying to find one of the tiny suckers... Sit at a well lit table or workbench!

One day our iphone just wouldn't unlock all the way...you could pull the unlock bar partway across the screen, but no more. After trying to reset it and restore it with no success, we figured it was toast...but for the price of this replacement part we hated not to try. The part came with all the tools we needed, and we found instructions on youtube. 20-30 minutes later our iphone was back!

This is an excellent product for a great price. I purchased it because of the "home button" wore out on the original and replaced it with this product. I must warn whomever reads this review that it is tedious and fragile to replace and difficult. You will break the old screen. Pay attention to detail and have patience and finesse. Watch a good YouTube video several times and have a well lit CLEAN work area. If you aren't confident in your ability, then have it professionally repaired. It is fragile.

This item says that it comes complete with front glass and digitizer. I bought it and thought I will fix my glass and next thing I know i received it and no digitizer included. It was a bust I didn't return it because I recycled the phone and got good price for it. But this is not a good product or as it claims.

Works fine. The glass appears to be the same thickness as the original and it behaves the same.

One problem: The adhesive tape did not stick well to the back of the glass and it kept falling out of the iphone. I eventually used some alcohol to clean the back of the glass in the hope that would remove any residue. That resulted in the bottom sticking (near the home button), but not the top.

Solution: I used red RTV silicone sealant to fix the glass in place. I used a toothpick to put little blobs of sealant in place and my finger to smear it into the gasket. I really like the look!! It stays in place, will keep the dust out, and it looks kinda cool!!

I detracted 2 stars ONLY for the lack of instructions/presentation and the difficulty with the sticky tape.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The top two corners of the digitizer (glass rectangle adhered to the back of the glass) have tiny traces that turn 90 degrees. If those two corners chip, then they take the traces with them and you could loose touch detection on part of the screen. Take great care!!! The original is the same way and is why I made the replacement in the first place.
