    5 minute job mate, unscrew the two screws and slide it upwards to release the panel then reverse to lock the new one into place.

    I was worried about the camera and anything that would be connected to the back screen

    Just had a look on ifixit.com
    Really seems easy enough.
    I'm going to order the back panel tonight from eBay and take it from there.

    Any you guys recommend a good seller??

    A bit fiddly but as long as u have Patience, its fairly straight forward. Follow the guide on youtube.
    TAR seems to be a decent bloke!

    Thanks to TAR

    Murder unless you have eyes of a hawk as the screws are minuscule.

    You get it done for under 40 quid on ebay that's what i done with my last one.

    Default 4s back screen replacement.

    I replaced my old man's screen on his iPhone 4 the other week, it was a lot less hassle than I imagined. I decided to use a dinner tray with a piece of A4 paper taped to it with strips of double sided tape stuck to that to keep the screws in roughly the same location that they came out of the phone, took 40 minutes altogether. I then replaced one for my sister in law last week and completed it in half the time
