How do I fix a bent frame?

Hey. Lately I've had a bunch if customers with a slightly bent frame. This results in the replacement glass deattaching from the replacement screen frame. This is very annoying because I have to get the phone back and replace the screen, again,for free.

Does anyone have any tips on how I can avoid this? how to bend the iphone housing? and how to attach the frame to the glass again

Did you try to use special tools for straightening?

buy an iPhone case straightening tool. I just used mine for the first time the other day and it worked great. Mine is "Jia Fa" brand and it looks like every other one out there.

Is there a link for this? I've wanted to try this but it's pricey: gTool iCorner

I don't know.

I bought mine from a Chinese supplier. That's why I included the brand name. I just told my guy I needed a case straightener and a week later I got a nice yellow box from DHL :)

Is this chinese tool do the job or is it only one job tool?

Replace the case. Bending it back is too risky.

Its really not bad. The tool dials down and you set the stop so that you don't bend it too far. Previously, I did replace the case but I got sick of taking 2 hours to do a case swap. The tools is nice.

I don't see it as risky, the cases aren't really that bent, you have to really examine the phone to even notice where the frame are misformed. I've tried stuff like heating the case up with my heat gun, then putting something heavy on top of it too see if it did the phone any good, but no look so far.

As usual someone will get downvoted for recommending some bending tool.

My clients do not have time to wait for a frame to be bent, they want the screen replaced in half an hour to an hour.

No way I'm going to do case swaps in scenarios like that. Thats why I ended up buying this tool:

Never regretted it, something that can be done quickly with ease then I might as well use it. Of course I don't take in jobs with significant damage to the housing.

$66 USD is pretty cheap if you ask me.

What is to risky about straightening it up?

I think that it is risky if you don't have special tools for it, then you can damage the frame irreversible.

I use a dial indicator, a ball end tip. Place the phone glass down on a smooth surface that is slightly smaller that the outer perimeter of the glass. That ensures that the lip of the frame does not provide false data. Run the phone slowly along the work surface on the block your using so the tip of the indicator rides the back of the frame. You can use clear screen tape that is properly adhered to prevent scratches if needed. Now if the frame is bent, the tip of the indicator will rise and fall with the bend. That frame should only have a few thousands of a inch of travel for the indicator tip if it's straight. Any thing more and you have located the trouble area. You can use a straight edge or such to further check those spots. Once you confirm a bend you can use a icorner / gtool to straighten the side wall. Make sure the kit you buy does the side walls as well as the corners too. As far as links for the tool go, I'd say shop around. ifixit has one and ebay has many listings as well. Yes this process can be time consuming but (though if you practice a few times it becomes easy and takes a few minutes to do), I look at it like this. I did not bend it. I did not decide to use Reynolds wrap aluminum foil for a case on a 600 +dollar phone. Lastly I do not want a customer returning and need to redo the repair for free under warranty. I tell my customers to do it right or the repair is not going to work long term and they will be back. Never had a customer that did not understand and appreciate my honesty, especially when it potentially saves them from paying for parts and or labor for a second repair.
