    I didnt understand the last step:

    http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone/i.../137/13/Page-7

    what do they mean by:

    Place double stick tape on the open areas of the touch screen plastics.

    Pinch each corner for 60 seconds to allow the tape time to bond the two surfaces

    Default help!

    I took the top off with a suction cup and the 3 cables were pulled out because the suction cup pulled the top away too fast. I tried putting the cables back in 3 different times and it didn't work.

    What happens if I ruined cable 3? What happens if I ruined the white connector for cable 3? What should I replace?

    The phone doesn't turn on now.

    Pulling out or damaging those cables (1-3) should not affect whether the phone turns on or not. Plug the phone into your computer and your computer should detect it. Those cables are for the LCD, touch, and earphone. If any of those cables are damaged, you will most likely have to replace the component that cable is attached to.

    It needed to be charged but it had a near full battery when I started. Do you think its possible I discharged the battery when I took it apart?

    Talking

    If you took a looooong time to do the repair then maybe your battery discharged. I can't really see how you could discharge the battery unless you caused a short or something. If you did that, then I'm pretty sure you'd know.
    As a side note to anyone who cares, on a 3G screen replacement I did, I tore the home button ribbon cable by being careless. It's not an easy part to find! For anyone who did the same, I found a replacement for $10.99 including shipping, which is a sweet deal.

    Anyone needing this part will thank me for the info

    That sucks. I don't think you can replace the connector without replacing the logic board (unless you have sick soldering skills and tools). I'd try gluing the ribbon cable down with a little bit of craft glue (hot glue gun). That way, the ribbon cable holds pretty firm and you can still peel the glue off if you need to remove the ribbon cable again.

    Metal? The connector is attatched to the pcb and that's what you glue. Just seat the ribbon cable in the broken connector so that it's making contact then put a small dab of glue on it with a glue gun.
