The home button do tend to break, the iphone 3 or 3gs are straight forward to replace the home button. Remove 2 screws from the end of your phone, 1 on either side of your charging socket. Lift the screen from the home button end as there are ribbon cables on the earpiece end of the screen. You then have access to replacing the home button but the iphone 4 and newer model are alot more difficult as the last thing to be removed is the screen and you have to remove the screen for access to the home button. It is a very cheap fix but if you don't know what your doing when taking apart your phone you could cause alot more damage. Have a look at a internet iphone repair video to see if you would be confident of doing the repair yourself. Before you start to take apart your phone make sure it is not under warranty as taking it apart will void any warranty.
This one is VERY tricky. I wouldn't let anyone touch it unless they had a lot of experience taking apart phones and putting them back together. Basically, the LCD screen (all LCD screens) is stuck on your phone by a really strong adhesive sticker. I DO NOT recommend trying to pry it off because it will only break or crack a screen. What you have to do is unscrew those tiny little screws that connect the surrounding body of the phone to the LCD screen, then pop off the body of it. Then, CAREFULLY unstick the screen, replace it, and put it back together.
Most cell phones also have little plastic tabs holding them inside besides the screws,i have found that if you look closely ,you'll see some sort of a little slot or opening that you can slide a thin small flat tip screw driver in, Carefully work the screw driver around and the plastic tabs will open.
Taking it apart isn't that hard, as long as you have a very tiny philips screwdriver. There is 12 screws that you will need to unscrew. The 6 under the battery cover, 2 larger black ones on the hardware, and after you unstick the camera button and the volume button, you can remove the hardware and unscrew the screws that keep the screen cover on. the screen pops out and there you go. you'll also need a small flathead to pop the covers off.
The bottom half was working, the top keyboard was not working. The only button on the top that worked was the power key. Today, I got a screwdriver and took the whole entire thing apart. Start by removing the battery, then take out the 6 back screws. Gently pull the back apart - this will be tough, do it evenly around all sides instead of getting just one side and yanking or you might break it. two of the screws on the top are accessible readily, but the two near the hinge are only accessible once the back is apart. Take the front apart with these 4 screws. dry it out with a q-tip. There should be four more screws inside - take those apart and dry clean. Pull the face off and dry the large white plate that receives all the button action. I put it all back together and my buttons worked again. I didn't even feel like I did anything to fix it because it wasn't really wet inside, i think there was just a micro-dot of moisture on that white plate. I hope it works for you. I was so excited about mine that I got on here to tell others. But hey - I also prayed about it and God cares even about the little things!!!!! Now - I've got the battery out and am leaving it out for a couple of days just to make sure that its totally drive because any water in there could still damage the phone if there is a power source. GOOD LUCK!
