    Hi,

    I have an iPhone that turns on, but does not respond to touch. Do I need to buy both the lcd and digitizer, or just one part to fix it? or do these parts even come separately?

    Is it the digitizer, or LCD that is what makes it respond to touch? Digitizer, right?

    If my memory serves me correct, you should only need the digitizer, and yet they came separate up until the 5 was released.

    Have a look here for the best instructions I've seen to repair your phone.

    The digitizer and LCD display were fused starting with the iPhone 4.

    Looking at my poor typing skills now, but thanks for the correction.
