Microphone replacement. Can I do it myself?
My friend has an 8310 thats a dud since having it replaced is not an option. The microphone doesn't work, you can speak to others with a bluetooth headset but they won't hear you using the phone itself. So searching online I found that a malfunctioning Microphone is the problem, a replacement part was actually found on ebay and I'm hoping I will be able to do it. I have yet to find a technician who seems aware of the fact that the part can be replaced. I'm not in the US so my options are kinda limited, it would be great if I could do it myself.
Anyone can offer some insight? Thx
Youtube has video for complete disassembly of your blackberry. Your going to need a star head screwdriver I think its a seven.its pretty easy with the video
You need a T5 and T6 torx. I replaced the speaker in mine and it was quite easy.

i checked it is indeed a t-6 hex driver(autozone $3.99)
Yes, the mic can be replaced but it requires a delicate touch with a heat gun because it appears to be soldered to the board. We have stayed away from replacing the mics in curves in our shop because of the possibility of damage to the components on the backside of the board and near the mic. If you can find someone that has replaced the mics on Razor's, they should be able to pull this one off and remount a new one. The mic on a pearl is not the same as on a curve because the pearl's mic is replacable and uses two (or three, can't recall) micro springs to make contact with the board.
