I cracked the screen on my iPhone 5s.
This is the first time I've attempted a repair on my own. I crack the screen on my iPhone 5 and it was very bad. It was so bad it would cut my fingers when I attempted to swipe for any functions. A friend told me about ifixit.com. So, I ordered the kit and went to work.
I was able to get it installed with the online instructions with no problem. Once I was finished, everything seemed to work. However, when I tried to make a call, I couldn't hear out of the ear piece. So, I made calls on the speaker but everyone had a hard time hearing me.
I searched on the ifixit.com website the next evening to see if anyone else had experienced similar issues. In the article I found, one individual stated to check the screws and make sure they weren't too tight. So, I took the new screen off and re-installed taking extra precautions not too overly tighten the screws. Once complete, everything (including my rear facing camera feature) is now working.
I am self employed and use my phone for all my work contacts. I was very nervous to be disconnected if I wasn't successful. It has been a great experience and I would definitely recommend to anyone that is half way decent with repairs.
Be sure and read all articles you can find beforehand. I would have known to be very careful when tightening the screws.
