In this guide, we’ll be showing you how to take apart your Blackberry Curve 3G 9300. This can be useful for you if you’re wanting to change the screen, change the housing or keypad, or alternatively, if you just want to know what’s inside your phone! Before you start, make sure you’re confident about what you’re doing – a mistake can result in a bricked phone. And also, make sure you’ve got the correct screwdriver: The Torx T6. Anything else can risk you damaging the threads to the screws.
1) Turn off the phone. Remove the back of the phone (no tools required for this part), and take out the SIM card and battery.
2) Using the Torx T6 screwdriver, undo the two screws on either side of the phone and keep them safe.
3) Should you wish to remove the lens on the phone, this can be done with a lever tool. The lens is just stuck on with a little adhesive (if you’re removing this for a longer amount of time, it is better to replace the adhesive to ensure firm stick).
4) The same lever tool can be used to remove the front housing – run it along the sides very carefully all the way around and the housing should pop up. After this is removed the keypad or joystick can be changed.
5) There are two further screws to the top of the phone, left and right. This holds the LCD in place and can then be lifted off. Take care when unconnecting the LCD from the board.
It’s a simple procedure. If you’d like to watch a video, you can do it here.
