Default replacing the blackberry frontplate?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, i have a blackberry 8310, and the casing on it chipped so i bought a new one off the CNN site
and i also bought myself a T5 screwdriver at Sears too! :D

So i was wondering, will i need to disassemble the whole blackberry just to change the front plate, or do i just have to unscrew the screws and it just falls out?

If not, can someone show me or explain to me hwo to do it?
Thank you so much!

Default AT&T blackberry warranty?

If you open a phone and swap it for warranty, would they really know the difference?


I'm kind of afraid to do anything to it because of it

Why do you need to open it? Do you mean like disassemble it?

I'm thinking you keep starting new threads all on the same subject.

**merged with the other**.

Welcome to the forums. This topic may be covered in the FAQ section. Additionally, in the limited time I've been here there have been other threads opened with virutally the same question, i.e., how do I open up my BB and swap something out, etc. Maybe a quick search will get you the answer.
Good luck.

No, you need a case opener tool in addition to your T5. And it's only 2 screws. It's moderately easy. PDAParts has a YouTube Video on Disassembling a Curve.
