My Display Isn't Broken Anymore! But My Speakerphone Mic Is...
1 - 2 uren
My iPhone 4s slipped from my pocket dropping onto a parking lot - shattering the glass of the front display. Couldn't hold the phone up to my ear, so used the speakerphone for a week while trying to limit my contact with the display - to avoid getting too much glass lodged in my fingers. (Thank goodness for the speakerphone!!)
My husband volunteered to do it, because he has used iFixit kits in the past - but not to this extent. It was a very cumbersome process, and he followed the directions very carefully - re-reading portions before actually performing the task. 4 hours later, the display was fixed, and then, he realized the mic was not functioning on the speakerphone setting.
Well, it was definitely a trade-off. I could have paid a professional to do this for us for $80 in an hour, but decided to do it ourselves for half the cost in a lot more time. The display looks wonderful, and it fixed the problem... unfortunately while creating another one. The speakerphone mic now doesn't work, which will be another $25 kit to replace it. Oh well.
