When dismantling any phone, great care should be taken to ensure that no damage is caused to any of the parts. Rough handling may result in severe damage of many parts, and if proper anti-static procedures are not followed, electrostatic damage may result in any electronic component.
Before commencing, it is recommended that the correct tools are purchased for the job in hand - at the very least, you will require a Torx T6 screwdriver.
Step 1. Release the battery cover.
Step 2. Remove the battery cover and the battery.
Step 5. Using a thin plastic shim, release the two clips
at the top of the phone.
Step 6. Now slide your shim along the sides of the A cover to release all the remaining clips.
Step 7. Now lift up the A cover.
Step 8. Use your shim to release the keypad.
Step 10. Carefully lift the PWB unit - bear in mind that this is glued in place.
Step 11. Remove the PWB unit and screen.
Step 12. Release the flex at one side,
Step 13. and then at the opposite side.
Step 14. Now lift away the PWB assembly.
Step 15. Release the LCD connector.
Step 16. Separate the screen from the metal shield.
Step 17. Release the camera guide assembly.
Step 18. To remove the camera you should use a specific tool which is not publicly available. This step is included here purely for the sake of completeness.

Step 21. Carefully slot the flex connector through the C cover.

Step 2. Remove the battery cover and battery.

Step 5. Using a thin shim release the clips on the D cover.
Step 6. Remove the D cover now that all the clips have been released.Step 7. A specific tool is supposed to be used to remove the camera assembly which is not available to the general public. This step and the following one are included purely for the sake of completeness.
