    if you look for cnn.cn on youtube, they have a pretty comprehensive video list of taking apart most bbs and other smartphones. take a gander there.

    what device is it for?

    i'm sure there are just a couple of screws to take off the "motherboard" that you're just not seeing...

    it's for the 8320 and i've seen the videos. it goes through taking it apart but nothing about replacing the midplate with the new one. the midplate is the part that the motherboard sits on top and contains the loudspeaker, antenna, battery connector, etc.

    thanks for your help though...

    Did either of you succesfully swap out the midplate? I have the midplate now, and I'm fairly certain that I can swap out the parts, but some areas are causing me concern. For example, under the foam padding near the top, there is some black and white sticker that looks almost as if it is some type of circuitry. But I cannot tell.

    How did you remove the foam? Cnn suggested that I slightly heat the area to assist in removing the foam.
