Taking your phone apart with the T6 screw driver.
(I've place a link below to a youtube video showing you how, hope it helps)
Removing the two Contacts the top of the bezel and attaching them to the new Bezel.
(These are your Lock, Mute/Standby keys)
Once received from the mailman, quickly opened and was excited to install. Make sure you are okay with voiding your warranty
and is comfortable with taking your blackberry apart.
ONLY real "challenge" was transferring the two contacts (Lock and Mute/Standby)
from the original bezel to the new black one. I used a needle (T-Pin to be exact) to pry the contacts off and place them.
Put the phone back together and and booted it up. Called a couple of people to made sure the sound quality was sending and receiving the same, had no problems.
So far I love how my phone looks, one solid color.
External fits correctly, no problems sound quality wise. Everything seems just as is. Note: Taking your phone apart voids any warranties you have on it, so do at your own risk. (the warranty sticker is placed on the upper left screw hole, once taken off the warranty is voided.)
