Default Removing Faceplate

Please Login to Remove!

I order a new faceplate (Where it says Blackberry) for my 8820 today because I scratched the original. Does it just snap on or I have to remove everything to change it

So, you only ordered the lens? It's stuck on to the top frame with some seriously sticky tape, so you'll have to be very careful when prying it off not to break the thin frame it sits on. If I had to replace the lens, I think I would just order an entirely new faceplate with the lens already installed.

Make sure you pay close attention to the disassembly guide referenced in the previous post. Remove the four screws before prying off the side panels. I got the two steps reversed and broke the clips on the side panels when I popped them off. Of course, now I realize that the clips on the side panels are actually held in place with the screws, so screws first, then side rails...
