    Unhappy iphone 4 ripped cable
    basically whilst fixing my iphone (smashed screen..again!), i accidentally ripped a cable. it appears to be the one that links to the front facing camera!

    i am planning on getting the iphone 5 when it comes out in summer, so im not that fussed about the FFC. but if i still reconnected everything up, minus the camera cable. would it still work?!

    me too
    I did the same thing and phone was okay
    I could even take a picture and save it
    but i also (**** curiosity) hit the button to flip to face-side camera and now I have not camera. How can I make phone go back to regular camera?
    I took battery out and this did not help.

    Also, if I want to fix it, anyone know where I can buy the part?

    do a hard reset and that should cause it to go back to the back camera if not then restore it and dont select the front camera. I did the same thing last summer.
