Broken housing on 6255I

I have two Nokia 6255I phones, in really good working condition. But the housing on each is broken, (hinge). I would like to find a place where I can get new housings and find out how to take them apart and replace the housing.

    i have checked with several repair shops in the Dallas area, none of them seem to have the casing/housing or seem to want to find them. I think I can find the housing online if I just had some instructions on how to remove the old and replace with the new.

    well that will work great but I need to replace the whole housing case, the ear part and the key pad part. THE HINGE IS BROKEN and since its a flip phone, if the hinge is broken, it don't flip. You flip it, you now have two parts in your hand. I have replaced the faceplate cover twice already, i need to replace the rest of the housing.......... But we are on the right track here

The best suggestion is to bring your phone to the nearest Nokia Care Center. Or you may wanna check any cell phone stores. There should be an available casing/housing in any cell phone stores.

Have a good one!

    Okay, you will need a T6 tool:

    #1. Open your flip phone take the career logo/ Nokia logo off.

    Unscrew one T6
    screw and pry the faceplate off your phone; make sure not to pull the
    cover off suddenly after it becomes loose, rather gently remove it.

    Place your new faceplate on your phone and squeeze 4 corners till clicks on.

    screw on one T6 screw back on and replace the batter door.

    Check this link and maybe you can order a housing:

    Have a good one!

I dropped my nokia 6131. now the mini display is not working: it's upside down and not showing caller id. + the flip is not answering the all when opened

one of the problems with the flip phones is they are very easily broken at the hinges. try taking out the battery and then restarting it. there are several very tiny wires that go through the hinges, and if one of them is broken, not much you can do unless you are very good with cells. only a shop could fix, unless you have insurance on your phone. if not...... new phone.....argggg
