This guide will show someone how to remove the screen from the phone. It does require several specialized tools, but the actual removal of the screen is relatively simple. However, because this is a waterproof device, removing the screen on this device WILL break the screen and make it unusable. Before beginning the removal process, be sure that you have a replacement screen.

    • Make sure you don’t touch the metallic tip. You will burn yourself.

    • Hold the heat gun roughly 6 inches away from the screen of the phone and slowly run the heat around the edge of the screen.

    • Keep at least 6 inches of distance from the screen. Keep moving the heat around to avoid warping the phone screen or internal parts.

  5. Using a plastic opening tool or spudger, pry up the screen after the adhesive has melted. When working with electronics, it's important to choose a tool that's ESD-safe to avoid accidental damage to the device. The metal spudger is great when you need serious prying power, but the regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible. Because it is a water-resistant phone, the screen cannot be taken apart without breaking.
