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!

This kit works great, and the price is right. It has most everything you will need to replace your broken glass/digitizer...even the suction cup. The tiny screwdriver is good for using as a magnet to get the tiny screws back in the holes, but the head stripped out easily. I just used my own good quality tiny phillips head to tighten the screws. *USE EXTREME CAUTION* You must watch the YouTube video first, and more than once would help. Go to [...] and type in....iPhone 3G/3GS Glass Digitizer Replacement Repair HD Tutorial DIY Complete...or something similar. I did end up leaving a protective strip over the back of the ear hole, but I managed to remove most of it from the front after installation so it was OK. Whew! It took me about 2 hours to complete because I like to take my time when it comes to a delicate repair like this one. Be careful with the broken glass. I used a small thin paring knife which worked perfect. The mirrored screen protector that came with it was a nice addition, so now i have a new iPhone complete with pocket mirror. Nice.

I was very skeptical about replacing my iPhone's broken screen myself, as I was aware of the fact that it voided the warranty and if something went wrong and the screen stopped working I was basically screwed. I decided to do it anyway, and am very glad that I did. This package came with everything you need, and a few things I didn't even touch. Now the process isn't easy.. I had a friend who worked as an Apple Genius for years take it apart and disconnect & reconnect the wires. He left if up to me to pry the broken glass from the frame - which was no cake walk, mind you. I had to use a blow dryer and a straight edge razor (and I also managed to need the guitar pick that came with this package). That was time consuming, tedious, and kind of stressful.
Frustrations aside, this is a worthwhile buy. The glass has a slightly different feel to it and is maybe a teeny bit thicker, but the touch sensitivity wasn't affected at all (trust me, I play Bejeweled Blitz like its going out of style)
Just keep in mind what you're getting yourself into, and be very, very careful. And for the love of god be careful with the screws. They are the size of a freakin grain of sand.
