Re: housing/faceplate

I believe faceplates are not available for this phone. Check with the company on their website .

Change fasciain nokia 6600 fold

Hi eugenemd,
1. Take front faceplate off by inserting credit card 1 between housing and silver key. As you pull up, take credit card 2 and slide it on the side of the phone prying the clips off.

2. Unscrew these 6 screws at the edges with the T6 screwdriver and release the 4 clips surrounding the LCD screen.

3. Slip the little black frame off of the LCD screen, and lift the screen. You should now see a screw. Removing this screw removes the back cover.

4. That’s it! Put your new faceplate or housing in and figure out how to put things back by following the directions here in reverse order.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

good luck with your fix,,,
have a nice day,,

Need to replace faceplate for nokia 5300

Start by removing battery. Then remove the camera plastic panel. After that you will need to loosen the screws holding the faceplate in on the top. You will require a special tool for this but it can be purchased from most places that sell DIY faceplate kits.After careful prying the faceplate should come loose. Keep in mind that the screen over the LCD screen is taped on and will need to be removed separately.

Motorola RAZR V3 faceplate lens cracked

It is not hard to change the faceplates on cell phones but you will need a special screwdriver to take the faceplate off, It looks like an octogon. I am not sure if it will fix the lens but when you look at the new plate you will be able to tell. Anymore question just giveme a shout bud.

Full faceplate installation instructions

take the phone to a mobile service center and have it done or try but if you are not a professional pls do not try this as the ribbon that connects to the board is very fragile.

Found this on Howard Forums. Sorry no photos.


Take off your battery, unscrew the screws on the back of the phone with a T6 screw driver.

Pry off the back plate,lift up circuit board gently(be mindful of flex cable) remove the flex cable from mail board by lifting brown part by the connector,

Unscrew then next 2 set of screws(be careful of flex cable!) remove the LCD board from the faceplate.

Now put the LCD Panel into the new faceplate. Find the new back slide and put your sliding rails on.(you may also put the slide magnets on from the old housing) carefully thread your flex cable through the opening.

Snap the Back slider on and then screw in the screws, then take the keypad housing and screw it into the slide rails.

Reconnect the flex cable by putting the brown hatch up(gently with finger nail) gently feeding the cable into the connector until the white line is about to the end of the connector.

Then put the brown thing down and apply little pressure.

Put the mail circuit board back into the phone with the headset jack going in first.

Then snap it back into place.

Transfer your speaker over the the new back housing with the prongs facing up.

Then screw on the back housing.

Replace battery and your DONE!!!

Best of Luck.

I had the same problem and I was lookin on a forum/blog on how to do this,but not many helped.I'm about to attempt to change my faceplate and I noticed when you take the battery cover off,there are 4 screws under the cover,and one near the antenna.You probably have to take apart the back part of the phone to get to the screws that are attatched to the sliding part of the phone.Its probably a little risky and tricky,but Im guessing thats how you get to the 2 hidden screws.

Putting on faceplate for samsung t319

hi you best bet is go to a repair mobile shop if are in doubt to try this .
you'll need a small Philips head screwdriver to complete the installation. To take off original faceplate, remove 2 screws located below the inside display (screws are hidden under stickers). Next, gently pry off the faceplate along the edges between faceplate and phone with a Faceplate Removal Pry Tool. When re-attaching screws, do not over-tighten screws
