Tools required : 
Phillips size 0 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card, suction cup, needle/drawing pin/paperclip or something similar.

2.With the sim holder released, your phone will look like below.

3.Remove the two screws at the other end of the phone

4.Now attach a suction cup near the bottom of the screen. Be careful not to push it on too hard. Now hold the back of the phone in one hand and slowly pull the suction cup towards you with the other hand. The screen will lift up but will still be attached by three ribbons at the other end.

5.You can now access a number of ribbon connectors. Each one attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever the two circled connectors up to unplug them.

6.The next ribbon connector (circled) has a black latch that you flick up to release the ribbon. You can then lift the LCD away from the phone.

7.Your phone should now look like below.

8.Remove the screws on each side of the screen.

9.The screws on the other side will be covered by a piece of sticky tape which you'll need to peel back.

10.Now remove the screw circled below.

11.Slide your plastic tool under the LCD screen to release it

12.You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.

About Apple iPhone 3G 

The iPhone 3G is the second generation of iPhone. It was the successor to the original iPhone, and is succeeded by the iPhone 3GS. Introduced on June 9, 2008 at the WWDC 2008 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco.

The 3G was very similar to its predecessor, containing the same 2 MP camera and no support for video recording, and its performance was limited by the same 128 MB eDRAM memory unit. Nevertheless, the 3G featured several improvements over the original. It supported Assisted GPS, 3G data and Quad-band UMTS/HSDPA.

The iPhone 3G runs Apple’s iOS operating system, the same operating system used on previous iPhones, the iPad, and the iPod touch. It is primarily controlled by a user’s fingertips on the multi-touch display, which is sensitive to fingertip contact.

Without modification, the iPhone restricts users from running any software that is not explicitly approved by Apple and distributed via its App Store. Doing so could potentially cause issues with software functionality which may not be covered under warranty. The iPhone 3G is preceded by the iPhone and succeeded by the iPhone 3GS.
