Cool I Fixed the 9550 Earpiece Speaker Problem

Please Login to Remove!

For those of you (like me) who have a 9550 that isn't under warranty, and the earpiece speaker is going in the handset, I have figured out how to replace it!

I looked far and wide and nobody was offering a replacement oem earpiece for the 9520/9550. When I disassembled the Storm 2 to try to clean the speaker (that didn't work), I noticed it looked very similar to a Curve earpiece speaker. The only difference is the Curve speaker is not as tall however the speaker leads lined up and it fit horizontally. Well I put the Curve speaker in, fill the empty space with a piece of rubber gasket (first I used paper), and it works!
