Sorry but the chrome bezels are stuck onto the cases. They don't screw in.
OK you are right - on the 2G model yes the bezel is held on by screws.
Not on 3G or 3GS though!!!!!
Please provide pictures so we can point out how stupid you sound
You are wrong, simple as that.
The only screws holding the bezel down are the ones that everything else on the iPhone uses to be screwed into. If you take these out the bezel wont just fall off the case.
You've done 154 (quite specific) yet you're still wrong. I'm glad you don't do repairs for me.
Lol oh right so you have an Apple repair guide. You must be correct.
I work along side Steve Jobs and he just bought me a coffee in the break room
I'm still waiting for your superduper-partypooper pics to prove me wrong.
This side of the pond is no different to your side dude. We don't have different iPhone's over here because we are in a different country.
I don't buy parts from eBay either. Although there is nothing wrong with OEM parts from eBay.
Additionally, I've never read a guide that says anything about the bezel coming off the case...ever. All the guides I've seen on the web just tell you how to remove everything from the case. Pictures included, bezel still intact. I guess the screws are really holding that thing down huh.
All this **** talking and no ones recommended a good adhesive to use. And yeah you need adhesive, not screws.
wrong! to this day I have still not glued any on. they do not require glue! some guys do put a dab of super glue on each corner but that is it. if you are using a real apple back and not some crap you got off eBay then it will fit perfectly when you mount the hardware in. if you use the eBay crap then your on your own.
Lol, dude, are you sure you don't have the Chinese iPhone? I've taken a few of them apart and they all are glued on from the manufacturer. If you don't want to believe it watch any of the tutorials of takeing apart the iphone and you'll see that you need to use a pry tool to seperate the backing form the chrome bezel. So either you A. Don't know what youre talking about and just arguing for the hell of it. B. Purpously posting wrong info. or C. you have a fake iPhone yourself that is attached by screws. Either way, the fact is that it is held together with adhesive, if you don't use adhesive then the chrome bezel won't stay on. End of discussion.
listen newbie you have no idea what you are talking about so hit the road you troll!!!!! I have never even taken a fake iPhone apart so I cant comment. obviously you have never taken a real iPhone apart. if you are using an OEM back and bezel it will not require glue or adhesive unless it is damaged in some way. and just because its on youtube doesnt mean its right.
