Yes, it can be done and is not hard, watch a you tube video and they show you step by step instructions on how to do it. The hardest part is taking the case apart. I personally have a heat gun which I use for shrink wrapping, and this is one technique that works in getting the glue to melt. I had to also replace the charging port on the phone because it was charging on the floor and someone stepped on the cord right next to the phone. I ordered the replacement part and it came with all tools needed to replace the USB port, but thats true also if you break the glass. If you do not feel you can do it take it to one of those booths at your local mall that does cell phone repair. Either have them do the entire job or bu the part and have them open the phone for you. You can also use a blow dryer but I think you should have a company that has a machine that you set the temperature to around 100 degree's then they use a suction cup then a box opener or plastic knife to break the seal.
