Despite being careful, I lost one screw that seemingly disappeared as I tried to place it back. Even a rare earth magnet didn't find it. It would be nice to have spare screws.

Bill Koonce - Replica

From whom would get those?

Dan Lo Fat -

Your neighbors Turbo 2…it would've up to you whether or not to tell the neighbors that you got them, lol. Everyone seems to have a junk phone around, open it up and find the closest matching one….. I be yet to find anyone that sells spare phone

Jack Gaites -

Replaced the battery, but now the display is pixelated on the right side. Any ideas? Need help ASAP.

The only thing that got me hung up on this was the volume button reassembly. I can't seem to get the volume button to work properly again.
