iPhone 4 Glass and Digitizer Only Scam

cheap iPhone 4 glass

If you purchased a cheap iPhone 4 Glass replacement on eBay, you will not be able to fix your broken iPhone 4 glass. You’ll need to purchase the complete screen with the frame glass and digitizer together. The reason is the glass and the LCD is glued together and you won’t be able to separate the LCD without breaking it. Trust us we already tried. So it is impossible to just get the glass screen and fix the iPhone 4. Take it from us, don’t purchase just the glass and digitizer. You will regret it. Unlike the iPhone 3G or 3GS, if you dropped your iPhone 4 and shattered the front glass, unfortunately you’ll need a complete front replacement with the LCD. There’s no way around it.

  1. But what if you buy the glass digitizer and the LCD separately and glue them together with adhesive?

  2. Thanks for the information!

    But I’m curious, if the glass by itself is not usable, then how or where did this person get these “glass only” parts to sell?

    Who is making “glass only” parts that are unusable? Or are you saying that someone is actually going through the trouble to manufacture a part they know is useless but will make them a quick $20 per sale?

    any thoughts?

  3. Why in the world would you sell a half manufacturer part as if it would fix the problem and the truth is many people fall for it because they don’t know any better. It’s sad.

  4. Glass only repair is very possible with the proper tools, skill, and a good amount of patience. I have several glass only repairs that range from the 4, 4s, and 5 (no one has broken a 5s or 5c yet). You will need a heat gun and some form of a scraper to seperate the old glass, LOCA adhesive (octopus glue is good), and a UV curing device to re-bond it. Usually you will have to replace the backlight too if you are doing the manual method because the LOCA will get inside it and ruin it (soldering skill required). Last but not least you will have to purchase and bond a new frame to the new glass.
