Brilliant!! It took me about 5 minutes to execute the procedure thanks to your perfect instructions and pictures. I, for the first time in my life, am excited about having a blue ball.....In any case, the only advice i might give to first timers taking apart small parts is to do the following. Have all your instruments laid out ahead of time--the smaller the screwdriver and forceps the better. Lay down a clean white cloth to work on in case anything pops out on you, and if you are a cat owner like me I suggest you bar them from your work area till this is complete. Also, when working with small parts, especially with delicate prongs, NEVER NEVER apply force. If something is not coming in or out easily, stop and re-examine your alignments and positions and apply force gently. The marking of the placement pieces is essential and obviously comes from an experienced person, it saved me all worries about where things were supposed to be. I also chose the blue color, and its simply fabulous with the black and silver colors of the pearl, hats off to San Francisco for a terrific idea, perfect instructions and the best assembly pictures I've seen on a post ever. Thank you, and once I get my black piel frama case next week Im going to be in hog heaven. To hell with windows mobile crap, this bberry is the best thing thats happened to an old ppc and windows smartphone hacker in ages. Since I still consult for them I have to show up to work with my tmobile dash, which isnt half bad, but the 8100 is a sheer pleasure compared to all the work I need to do on the dash to get it to do the things it ought to do all by itself.
