How To Take Apart A Blackberry Curve
Knowing how to take apart a BlackBerry Curve can help you make minor repairs or clean out dust and debris that might be impacting the performance of your SmartPhone. BlackBerry offers a whole series of Curve SmartPhones, but taking them part all involves the same basic process.
To complete this task, you’ll need:
- BlackBerry Curve
- Credit Card
- Take apart the basic components of the BlackBerry Curve. This will involve sliding off the panel of the BlackBerry. Then, you will be able to remove the battery, the SIM card and the MicroSD card.
- Locate the top two screws. These two tiny screws will need to be removed with a small screwdriver, such as one used to fix the frames of your glasses. Use the screwdriver to remove these two screws.
- Lift off the cover on the bottom of the BlackBerry Curve. In some cases, you may be able to pry off this cover with your fingernails, but it will be much easier using a credit card.
- Unscrew the bottom screws. Toward the bottom of the back of the BlackBerry Curve, you will not see two more screws. Use the same screwdriver to remove them.
- Pry open the BlackBerry Curve. With the first four screws removes, you will now be able to pry apart the SmartPhone. Slide the credit card between the front and back panels of the BlackBerry Curve and wiggle it gently so you can pull them apart.
- Detach the inside metal casing. This is held in place by two more tiny screws. Unscrew them with the screwdriver and lift up the casing. This will allow you to remove the keyboard, as well.
- Understand that when you take apart your BlackBerry Curve, your warranty will no longer be valid.
