    • Remove the battery cover by pressing on the small rectangular button location the back of the phone.

  2. Remove the battery by pulling it out toward you.
    • Remove the battery by pulling it out toward you.

    • Unscrew the 0.266 inch top-left screw with a T6 Torx Screwdriver.

    • Be sure to remove the stylus in order to access the screw.

    • Using the spudger, remove the rubber rectangular cover located in the upper right hand side of the device.

    • Unscrew the 0.266 inch screw with the T6 Torx Screwdriver.

      • If there is a red Palm sticker covering the screw, just puncture it to access the screw.

    • Remove the remaining two 0.266 inch screws at the bottom of the device.

    • Turn the phone 90 degrees to the right, so the screen is facing the right side.

    • Use a spudger to carefully separate the back panel from the front panel to access all the various components inside the phone.

    • Separate the covers from the left side of the device as indicated in the picture. The right side contains orange ribbons that are easily damaged.

    • Take the front the pannel and notice that the screen is attached by a piece of silver tape.

    • Using a pair of tweezers, carefully peel off this piece of silver tape.

    • Remove the screen from the front pannel.

    • Obtain a small metal spudger and flip up the 2 tiny plastic flaps that hold the tiny orange ribbons in place.

    • Do the same thing for the other flap on the opposite side.

    • Flip the screen over a 180 degrees and take off the metal piece that cushions the screen.

    • Flip the screen over another a 180 degrees and place pressure on the bottom ribbon (Where my left thumb is).

    • Slightly Pull apart the touch screen from the LCD screen by placing your thumbs where my thumbs are. DO NOT PULL THE TWO SCREENS COMPLETELY APART YET.

      • This part is tricky and might take some maneuvering and a little bit of force, but it is possible.

    • Move your thumbs to the other corner of the screen and repeat the same procedure in step 9.

    • Carefully peel the touch screen away from the LCD screen.

    • Now you should have both the touch screen and LCD screen detached from one another.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

These are very nice instructions. They are clear and detailed for anyone to follow. Thanks for putting together the steps and sharing it.

I have not tried all steps completely yet. But will do so. I will left with probably a question what to do with touch screen. My phone has

never fallen down nor damaged. It worked perfectly well and one fine day, touch screen stopped working. In any case, I will try.
