Question about Cell Phones
Yes you can swap the speakers if the broken phone is also Samsung R560, but I am not sure which speaker you were talking about. If you can hear and incoming call after the Loudspeaker is activated and if you can't hear when it's deactivated, then the front speaker (smaller speaker) needs to be replaced [the bigger speaker with which we hear ringtones and songs is called ringer]. There is nothing to worry about the glue or anything, it should easily fit in the compartment. Since it's a slider with double keypad, you need to be very careful while disassembling the unit, otherwise you'll end up damaging the flex cable. All the main components (motherboard) is/are fitted on the bottom part and the flex cable for display, speaker and keyboard pass through the two parts - top and bottom, and you know which is (flex cable) easily broken if handled without much care.
If you are not very sure and if you don't have the compatible screwdriver, I would recommend you to get it done from a mobile repairing center, they may charge you a small fee, but they will not fail, if they fail, they should take the risk and will replace the necessary components. Or if you know and or if you have idea how to repair a mobile handset and have all the compatible screwdrivers set, then go ahead with my instructions.
Note: Even using a bad screwdriver can damage the handset, could be the case or could be other components.
If you need further help, let me know.
