Re: how do i disassemble a t- mobile mda cell phone?
There are just four screws that hold your phone together. one is under where you pen is stored, one is on the same end where you can put the string in to carry it, and two on the top in the corners. you jsut need to take all four of these off and you kinda have to pry the two pieces apart because they seem to be clicked together. i have the same problem as you but the metal contacts on my usb port are broken so the phone wont charge unless i get the whole motherboard replaced or the usb port replaced with a new one. do you know anyone that sells the parts individually for the mda?

Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.
in windows, right click on the CD player with you cd in it. click explore and look for USB Drivers. Install the drivers and try hooking your phone up again. Try using a fast USB 2.0 port on the computer.
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
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
