    You can try and do it on your own, but good luck...Takes a lot of skill and you need to be good with a soldering gun.

    Email Davey Jordan at Bionic Wireless. His email addy is fdjordan@gmail.com. Tell him n8 sent you and what your problem is.

    You will have to ship it off to him to get it fixed, however, it's going to be less expensive than buying a new phone.

    How about just getting a replacement sent from TMobile or your Cingular? I had the same issue and they sent me a new replacement because it has a one year warranty. The only catch is I had to pay for the shipping but it was only $9. Maybe that will work for you.
