I'm totally in shock. I replaced the screen last night and it was working perfectly, and then when I went to pick up the phone this morning the screen was split across the middle. I haven't carried the phone or done anything with it. The screen was working perfectly after the install and I played with it for an hour or so before plugging it in for the night. Today I went to pick it up and the screen is broken. Has anybody heard of this before?
Oh, and one more little addendum: to get the earphone speaker off I used the heat it up and poke it from the other side trick again and it worked well to not only get it off, but preserve the adhesive as well. Since I was concerned about getting it lined up properly when reapplying it I waited until I had the new screen reattached and then dropped it into the opening in the frame so it would be in just the right place. Also, because the tweezers I have kind of suck I ended up using a bamboo skewer to do most of the work in separating the screens ribbon cable from the board and in poking through holes to detach the parts. It worked great.
Like the commenters above, the screen I ordered off of eBay came as just he display and not the frame, so I had to figure out the last bit from the comments rather than with pictures. I wasn't clear on how the heat gun step worked and after warming things up was surprised that the frame wasn't getting any more pliable. What I discovered is that the heat is just supposed to soften the adhesive that runs around the perimeter of the frame. I also wasn't clear on how much of the frame and display assembly was the screen part and how to get it loose. After inspecting my replacement screen I realized that the shiny silver element I could see through the pencil eraser sized round holes was the back of my screen, so I poked through those holes at the back of my screen to pop it loose. I didn't get any adhesive with my screen so I used super glue to reattach the display and it seems to be working just fine. The directions here worked very well for me, but I would have loved one final picture that showed this last step
