broken iphone screen

There WAS A YOUTUBE video on how to do this as I bought an iPhone off ebay with cracked front and back. I was able to replace the back because that was fairly simple, but the parts are very small and you need a special tool to even take it apart. Replacing the front didn't look so easy. You pretty much have to take the phone apart which would be the easy part, but you'd have to remember what cables plugged in where and what screws of different sizes went where. You're better off taking it to a place that does this repair often!

how can i replace the screen

You will need a screwdriver that is really small its called a T6, 4 screws in the back of the phone and everything in the phone unplugs inside easy, if you know how to figure it out inside. Good LucK! FYI T6 is not an easy size to find, I found mine at Home Depo and it will only come in a set.

razr2 broken cracked screen

ya, be careful. i read online use a razor blade, jewelers screwdriver, etc to pry up on it, then take a piece of paper and work it back and forth till the screen is completely removed.
remove any bits of glass, then carefully clean off the old adheasive with a cloth or your finger. this is just what i read online. i am going to try this myself when i get the new glass screen in.

Cracked Camera

No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.
