    I had a shattered 3GS screen, which I removed. I bought a replacement screen, along with a new mid bezel. I removed the original bezel/screen, and replaced. When I got the new bezel and screen in then turned on to test, the screen wasn't reacting to touch.

    I went to remove the screen again to tighten the strip connections, but I couldn't remove one of the screws on the bottom of the iphone. It just kept twisting as I screwed. Any ideas on how to remove this screw? I want to sell this phone because I got the iphone 4, but can't get the DAMN SCREW OUT!!! Help please!

    have you tried giving it slight force? hold the iphone and push against the screw with the screwdriver and turn. If you've got access to a magnet/magnetic screwdrivers might help :)
