T-mobile MDA on/off switch broken

The on/off switch on my t-mobile MDA is broken. It does not have the nice spring loaded click effect, and no longer turns the phone on and off. For a couple days, I could use the phone only after someone called, and woke the phone up. Then, like a fool, I tried removing the battery and putting it back in. Now I can't turn the phone on... :-) How do I disassemble or take apart the phone completely to get to the switch? Any ideas on how to repair the on/off switch? Thanks.

Plug in your charger to your phone, find something small to stick into the reseting hole, when your phone turns on, go into settings>power>advanced: un-click the "turn off device if not used for"
it may drain your battery faster, BUT it works!!! :D
Good Luck!

You need to use a torque 6 screwdriver to loosen the screws under the battery. Ther are also some screws by the camera.

Broken USB Port on T-Mobile MDA

My daughter's MDA had the same problem. I just opened the phone and soldered the legs on the corners back to the board. You have to bend the pins on the back of the plug down to make contact with the board, before you solder. Place plug back down and line it up with contacts. If done right should work as normal. Hope that helps
