    So everything works fine, everything is where it should be. There's one tiny problem.
    When I get a message when my phone is locked, the screen turns on like normal, but then won't go off. It just stays there for minutes draining my battery. Is there something I can do? I'm at work, so I haven't tried restoring it. That was my last option idea.
    The phone didn't do this previously.

    It fixes it when I turn off the show in lock screen option for text notifications. So it's not as bad, but I want it normal.

    Then you messed something up. tear it down and try again.
    If you took it to Apple, they would of done it right.

    the problem is that when you DIY, you simply run the risk of messing something up.

    option 1? - do it all over again, maybe youll get it right.

    option 2? apple.

    3? - nothing

    its not like we can say oh yeah, you didnt connect circuit a to circuit b correctly since the phone is not in front of us.

    good luck with any option.

    The option of going back to apple is out since the product had been tampered with already

    True.
    So... Im sorta cool with just keeping my alerts off my lock screen if the restore doesn't fix it.

    Yes having a perfectly working iPhone would be awesome. Not having the technical skills to properly replace an iPhone screen not so awesome.
