Does anyone have a guide to replacing the microphone on an 8700?

Or you can buy a new one (entire phone that is) from the forums for around $30-50

Default Re: Mic Replacement

The process is fairly easy. Simply remove the old microphone with the tip of a knife, and then place the new microphone in the previously occupied location. There is a piece of rubber that will hold the microphone in place. As long as you do not bend or break the two leads on the microphone it should work. The contact for the microphone on the PCB is circular, therefore it does not matter how the microphone is positioned.

I do not have any pictures of the process, but please let me know if you need additional information.
