The iPhone 4/4S Digitizer Scam on eBay and Amazon

We have talked about this before but here we go again. We get many emails from people asking if they can replace just the touch panel aka digitizer on the iPhone 4/4S. The simple answer is no and to prove it take a look at this video we found on Youtube that shows you what happens. It is plain an simple the Touch Panel and LCD are fused together at the factory and they can not be replaced independently of each other. We carry the complete replacement screen for the iPhone 4/4S at DirectFix.com.

Apple “Screws” Broken iPhone 4 Repairs or Not?

iPhone 4 Screw Compare

iPhone 4 Pentalobe Screw Compare

If you want to fix your broken iPhone 4 or change the broken back on it you will need a new tool in order to open the iPhone 4 up. Apple has recently decided to replace the #00 phillips screws on the bottom of the iPhone 4 with some new ones called “Pentalobe” screws. They are a rounded 5 point center of the screw and very tiny which means they will be easy to strip. DirectFix.com has on order some tools that will allow you to open the new screws up but because of the delicate nature of the screw we highly recommend that when you do remove them you replace them with the good old stand by phillips #00 screws like the original iPhone 4 came with. We have included some photo’s showing the difference of the Older iPhone 4 with the phillips screws and the newer one which we just purchased 1 week ago that has the Pentalobe screws. All the Part Numbers and Parts are available below. Feel free to click on the part or part number for more information on the parts/tools.

iPhone 4 Broken Screen Replacement Money Saving Tips

So we have been getting many emails regarding the screen replacement video we did for the iPhone 4 (See Video Below). We are also getting many people asking where are the replacement Touch Panels and LCD’s since the only part we list on our webpage DirectFix.com is the complete screen assembly for the iPhone 4 (IP-2411 Black).

Please read this information on some parts to avoid purchasing from sellers on Ebay. People that sell parts on ebay only want your money and rarely are they there to provide support or proper information regarding the part you purchase when it comes to the iPhone 4. We at DirectFix.com have spent many years and thousands of dollars providing quality videos and parts for the iPhone, Smartphone and PDA market.

As reported on many news sites and our site the iPhone 4 screen is nothing like the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS. You are not able to separate the Touch Panel from the LCD and just replace the one broken part you need. The iPhone 4 Touch Panel and LCD are fused or adhered together just like the original iPhone 2G from 2007. At the factory Apple has taken the LCD and Touch Panel and adhered it together so it is one complete screen which also allowed them to make the iPhone 4 thinner. Just because a part is available on Ebay for sale does not mean it is the correct part to fix your problem. This is the case with the iPhone 4 and many people on ebay are selling the iPhone 4 LCD and iPhone 4 Touch Panel part by them selves. We have sacrificed many iPhone 4 screens trying to figure out a way to get the touch panel and lcd to separate from one another without any damage. Every time we attempted to take it apart a part would be damaged and or not work properly once put back together. We understand that it is very tempting to want to save some money by purchasing the cheap part from a vendor on Ebay but after the hours you will spend trying to fix your phone just to find out that the part is not correct is not worth it. I also doubt that any of those Ebay sellers selling the wrong part is going to take it back so you will be stuck with a part that does not fix your issue and you still need to get the correct part.

Our advise is to just follow the directions we have listed at DirectFix.com and read the information that we have provided so you get the correct part the first time. This will save you time, money and a big head ache dealing with some kid or person that is just out to make a quick buck selling parts out of their bedroom on Ebay.
