Disassembly of BlackBerry 8700R

Instructions Written, and created by Tom Glogowski (Guess) of BlackBerryForums.com. Photos updated by Brandon (BBswany) of BlackBerryForums.com

Important! Please be sure you have the proper tools for this disassembly, as well as a dust free environment you can create. I recommend that latex gloves be used to prevent fingerprints from showing on the lcd and other visible areas. Be sure to remember the dissasembly steps, as you will need to put it back together once you are done.
