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 T5 screwdriver. Do NOT attempt to use a small Allen key or filed down screwdriver, you will only damage the screws.
Step 1. Remove the battery cover.
Step 2. Remove the battery.
Step 3. Remove the SIM card.
Step 4. Remove the two Torx T5 screws shown below and store them safely.
Step 5. Use a thin plastic shim to release the four clips holding the back cover in place.
Step 6. Rotate the rear housing away from the front carefully as shown below. Carefully release the flex connector using your shim or a flat bladed screwdriver.
Step 7. Use tweezers to remove the two aerial grommets.
Step 8. Now use your shim to carefully remove the aerial assembly.
Step 9. The transceiver assembly can be simply lifted away.
Step 10. Remove the four screw caps shown below, and the four Torx T5 screws that they cover.
Step 11. Now use your shim to carefully release the front fascia.
Step 12. Remove the front fascia and the buttons to the side of the handset.
Step 13. Unlock the ZIF connector and remove the camera flex then use tweezers to remove the camera assembly from the chassis.
Step 14. Use your shim or a flat bladed screwdriver to release the display module flex.
Step 15. Now carefully lift one corner of the display module and lift the unit away from the handset.

You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
It has an video explanation.
If yourmobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NCK) byjust contacting the current network provider customer caredepartment.It is free of cost.
The restriction code can be got from your old service provider..Thisrestriction code is kept to prevent someone who stole the mobile fromusing it with another provider...
They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..
After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..(vodafone)..
It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.
