    Depends which iPhone, but they are all a little tricky. But here's the best place to start:

    If you are talking about the iPhone 4, then no. The back cover is easy. It pops off after removing the two screws on the bottom. But the front display requires you to disassemble the entire phone. And when putting the new screen on, you have to thread two very fragile and awkward ribbon cables through a narrow slot. If either of these cables gets damaged in any way, your screen won't work correctly.
