Who said what lol

Still waiting for the part :)

I can use the phone if I put a mike in the socket but if I use the onboard mike it is just muffled

It's fiddly, very fiddly. I've changed a few Iphone screens, batterys, charging ports and speakers. Watch a video whilst you do it. Keep stopping it at important parts. Have something to put all the bits you have to take out before you get to the part you want to change, and keep them in order. Not all screws are the same, and they MUST go back in exactly the same way they came out. In the end, I was doing that many repairs, I bought the correct screwdrivers, saves a lot of hassle because the tools that come with the replacement part aren't very good. A magnifying lamp is also a good idea, the screws are tiny.

Use this guy.



........Good luck.

Ever thought the mike could be blocked by dust etc? Stick a vacuum cleaner on it for a few seconds. It's amazing how much cement dust can get into everything. ;)

Well that didn't quite go to plan :bash:

The back cover shattered into a million pieces but hey ho I can buy a new one of them....

Then I managed to dismantle it... that was the easy bit

But the mic card (in front of the phone in the pic) also has two tabs that fold around the front and the only way you can fit them is to take the front screen off. No chance

So if anyone wants to contact me in the next few days please do so by telepathics lol

PS. Anyone want to buy a mic and charging port card for an S7, unused lol?
