If your main camera glass is broken, you can either remove and replace the lens glass, or replace the whole lens assembly.

Removing the lens while the phone is still assembled may cause small pieces of glass to fall into the camera, but is a faster fix that requires less disassembly.

The lens assembly replacement is longer, and requires removing the back panel, but it is less likely to damage the camera itself. This procedure includes replacing the glass lens and the camera bezel, and will require replacement rear glass adhesive.

  • Follow this procedure if you are replacing only the glass lens over the rear-facing camera.

  • If you are replacing the entire bezel, skip this step and follow the instructions in the next step.

My lenses did not come with with adhesive on either side

Thank you, you just saved me $80. I took it to a place that gave me a quote of $80. I bought the kit from for $10, we already have a hair dryer at home. Because I was trying to be very careful, the whole process took me 15 minutes. Very helpful. So thank you.

  • Follow this longer procedure to replace the bezel and camera lens, which are installed on the rear case.

  • If you follow this procedure, you will need new adhesive to reinstall the rear case.

I did ut. It worked perfectly untill i realized my camera could not focus anymore... i ordered a new spare part and will try to remove the replacmenet one to clean it. I hope it doesn't come from the lens...

How can I make sure I don't get my replacement glass in backward.....because my focus is still gone. I'm devastated because I purchased this phone specifically for the camera to take pictures to upload to my eBay account. I worked for almost a full year before I could afford to buy this camera phone and I purchased it outright from straight talk. I own my camera and it is not insured. I followed your directions to replace my lens and now I'm worried I might have it in backward. How can I tell if the lens is in place incorrectly? By the way, my phone has never been dropped. It has been protected by an otter box since its purchase. My lens seemingly self-imploded. Just the strangest thing. Other than the lens, my camera doesn't have a scratch on it! Thank you for any help. Molly

Mine shattered too with no impact occurring, I just picked it up today at work and the glass cut my finger. I see that there are some claims out there like ours, Molly.

This was so easy and saved me more $50-$90! Except there's a lot of glass dust under the new lense. I tried to get as much out as I could. Is it worth trying to get the new glass off and knock more out? I did buy two pieces in case I messed up.

Dara Abrams - Contestar

That might be a good idea, I'd worry about the glass dust possibly spreading? I'd recommend canned air to blow out the pieces (watch your eyes!). You might also be able to use some sticky putty to reach in there, of course you risk getting the putty stuck in the camera assembly, so try the canned air first!
