    Sony Xperia XZ Battery and NFC Antenna Repair Guide Video steps:

    Step 1

    Power down your Sony Xperia XZ smartphone.

    Step 2

    Extract the Nano SIM card and microSD card Tray.

    Step 3 (Sony Xperia XZ Display Assembly)

    The 5.2-inch full HD display assembly with curved glass is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the frame. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.

    Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a triangle opening tool.

    With the triangle opening tool slice through the sticky adhesive.

    The display assembly is still connected to the phone, so don’t try to remove it entirely just yet.

    Remove the bracket that covers the display cable.

    Detach the cable and decouple the Sony Xperia XZ screen from the phone.

    Step 5 (Sony Xperia XZ Battery and NFC Antenna)

    Remove the following Phillips screws and then the metal bracket that covers the battery connector.

    Disconnect the Sony Xperia XZ battery from the motherboard.

    Remove the following 8 Phillips screws.

    Lift out the metal plate. Securely adhered to it are the Sony Xperia XZ battery and NFC Antenna.

    Locate the 2 peel-to-remove adhesive tabs at the top of the Xperia XZ battery. Use the tweezers to help grab the first tab. Try to keep the adhesive strip flat and wide.

    Slowly and gently pull each strip up and away from the metal plate. The strips will stretch to many times the length of the battery- keep pulling until they come out from between the battery and the metal plate.

    And just like that the 2900 milliampere-hour (mAh) Sony Xperia XZ battery is free.

    With the tweezers in hand, carefully separate the NFC Antenna from the metal plate.


    * To reassemble your device, follow the steps in reverse order.

    Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Teardown and Reassemble Guide Video steps:

    Step 1

    Power down the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.

    Step 2

    Eject the SIM card tray, and SIM card and microSD card tray, from the side of the Samsung phone.

    Step 3 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Display Assembly)

    The 5.5-inch Galaxy J7 Prime display assembly is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the frame. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.

    Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a playing card.

    With the playing card slice through the sticky adhesive and carefully decouple the Galaxy J7 Prime screen from the phone.

    The display assembly is still connected to the Samsung phone, so don’t try to remove it entirely just yet.

    Remove the bracket that covers the display cable.

    Detach the cable from motherboard and free the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime display assembly.

    Step 4 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Midframe)

    Peel up the 3 pieces of black tape.

    Remove the following 16 Phillips screws.

    The Galaxy J7 Prime midframe is secured by snug, press-fit notches. Use the triangle opening tool to release the clips and separate it from the rear enclosure.

    Step 5 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Loudspeaker, Volume Buttons Cable, and Power Button Cable)

    Pry the Galaxy J7 Prime loudspeaker up from the metal housing.

    The next 2 components extracted are ribbon cables that contain the volume buttons switches and power button switch. The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime power and volume buttons are nuzzled securely in the rear case, defying conventional removal.

    Step 6 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Motherboard)

    Disconnect the 3 cables from the motherboard.

    Remove the following 2 Phillips screws.

    Carefully lift out the Galaxy J7 Prime motherboard.

    Step 7 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Front-Facing Camera and Rear-Facing Camera)

    Remove the impressive 8-megapixel Galaxy J7 Prime front-facing “selfie” camera.

    Detach the 13-megapixel Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime rear-facing camera from the motherboard.


    Step 8 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Earpiece Speaker, Vibrator, Home Button with Fingerprint Scanner, Headphone Jack, Signal Cable, and Capacitive Sensors for the Bottom Buttons)

    Tweeze out the spring-contact-connected Galaxy J7 Prime earpiece speaker.

    Remove the vibrator from the chassis.

    Pop out the capacitive sensor for the bottom “recent” button.

    Remove the Galaxy J7 Prime home button and fingerprint scanner from the midframe.

    The next component to surrender is a cable array that includes the 3.5mm headphone jack, a signal cable, and the capacitive sensor for the bottom “back” button.

    Step 9 (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Battery)

    A good amount of adhesive secures the 3,300 milliampere-hour Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime battery to the midframe. With help from the triangle opening tool we free it from the adhesive.


    * To reassemble your device, follow the steps in reverse order.

    Search, I got a letter in the mail from Telus[my phone carrier] this morning, it starts out.
    Part of putting Telus customers first, means, continuing to upgrade our services to offer you the best experience possible. That's why as of January 31, 2017, Telus will be discontinuing your current mobile network. To stay connected and enjoy faster service on our 4G network, you will need to upgrade to upgrade to a 4G eligible device.

    Now me old flip phone is the one guys use to make a call when there fancy shit won't get out. My phone seemed as fast as anyones as when I talk they answer right away so I doubt that can get any faster.

    I'm thinking it's just another way of trying to make me spend money. Fortunately I have an old flip phone of my sons that is 4G compatible so I don't need to spend extra for something I won't use.

    I'm also thinking folks are so used to having internet to do their thinking that the world will end up really being flat after all.

    When I go to the bar I see all sorts of people on their phones. Couple who go there for a meal are each on their phones until the food comes out. Single people have their noses buried in their phones the entire time they are in the place. It's kinda funny.

    As for me...........I have a flip phone that works great. No plans on up grading anytime soon. And when I'm out and about I enjoy talking to people. Really don't understand the phone culture at all.

    The part I find the most perplexing is when there are 5 guys sitting around BSing and someone asks a question, I or someone else will answer it but at least three have to search it online to find the same answer. Like them fsticks think the internet don't lie.

    I just had to do the annual minute buy on T-mobile so my minutes would roll over for another year. Weird, they had a Samsung Galaxy On5 for free with the refill card so I took the deal. The phone is currently [deal off] on sale on T-mobile's site for $100. It has a bigger screen than my current phone and a much better camera. I don't normally use data away from the home so that part is not a factor. It is an Android phone, obviously.

    Well, fit, finish, are better than my $50 about 3-4 year old Windows phone [Nokia 521], screen is much larger and easier to see.
    However, I literally couldn't stand all the spyware from google and Samsung that you had to turn off to even get through the setup, and some stuff it seems you couldn't even turn off. It kept insisting I have a gmail account, but I skipped it and was able to complete the setup.

    This is my first real experience with a Android phone. I have used an iPhone for work before, and have been using Windows OS since I got the 521. I know about "limited apps" for Windows phone, but so far I have exactly 2 apps on my old 521 - a running app for tracking distance and speed, and the game of Risk!. Haven't had the need or desire for other apps.

    Running it bone stock configuration, I must say I hate this Android phone interface. I like the ease of navigation on the Windows phone. So much so that after a couple of days using the On5 I ordered another Windows phone with a very large screen and battery, 13 mp camera. Out the door brand new for $78. I guess it might be a case of "what you are used to". I will say again, great fit and finish on the On5, phone call quality so far was great, built in speaker not good for music, but I guess that is true of most any cell phone. It displays videos and pictures with high quality.

    I will say this about my "old" Nokia 521 - I took no care of it, no case, normally carried in my back pocket meaning I sat on it quite often, I don't remember ever dropping it however. Believe it or not, it is in great shape and the screen looks the same as when I bought it years ago for $50. I wonder how an iPhone would look if I treated it the same for the same period of time? My previous phone was the original Razr, of which I had 3 over about 10 years before moving to the Windows 521, the main reason for moving was the pain in the butt texting on the Razr.

    Alcatel IDOL 4S Screen Repair, Teardown and Reassemble Guide Steps:

    Warning:

    You are performing this repair at your own risk
    We claim no responsibility for any damages that might occur

    The DIY Alcatel IDOL 4S repair tools used in this video can be found here: https://www.fixez.com/categories/repa...

    Step 1

    Power down your Alcatel IDOL 4S phone.

    Step 2 (Alcatel IDOL 4S SIM and microSD Card Tray)

    Eject the SIM and microSD Card Tray.

    Step 3 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Rear Glass Panel)

    The IDOL 4S rear glass panel is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the metallic frame. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.

    With the precision knife create enough space to insert a playing card.

    Attack the adhesive and carefully dislodge the rear panel from the phone.

    The panel is still connected to the IDOL 4S by a cable, so don’t try to remove it entirely just yet.

    With the spudger in hand, detach the cable for the Alcatel IDOL 4S fingerprint sensor and free the glass panel.

    Step 4 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Speaker Module and Motherboard)

    Use the precision knife to peel up the speaker grills.

    Pry up the plastic bezel.

    Detach the IDOL 4S battery from the motherboard.

    Remove the following 13 Phillips screws.

    Disconnect the bevy of cables from the Alcatel IDOL 4S motherboard.

    Spudge up the module that includes the stereo-enabling earpiece speaker, antenna and notification LED.

    Easily extract the motherboard from the Alcatel smartphone.

    Step 5 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Front-Facing Camera and Dual-Lens Rear-Facing Camera)

    Remove the 8-megapixel IDOL 4S front-facing selfie camera.

    Use the spudger to detach the 16-megapixel Alcatel IDOL 4S dual-lens rear-facing camera with auto-focus.

    Step 6 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Headphone Jack, Power Button Switch, Proximity Sensor, and Microphone)

    Tweeze out the assembly that includes the 3.5 mm headphone jack, power button switch, proximity sensor, and noise-cancelling microphone.

    Step 7 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Battery and Loudspeaker)

    Locate the two peel-to-remove adhesive tabs at the top of the IDOL 4S battery. Grab the first tab and try to keep the adhesive strip flat and wide.

    Slowly and gently pull each strip up and away from the Alcatel phone. The strips will stretch to many times the length of the battery- keep pulling until they come out from between the battery and the midframe.

    Pop off the loudspeaker box.

    Locate and pull out the last peel-to-remove-tab at the bottom of the battery.

    Easily lift out the 3000 milliampere-hour (mAh) Alcatel IDOL 4S battery.

    Step 8 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Daughterboard)

    Peel up the interconnect cable.

    Remove the coaxial cable from the side of the IDOL 4S midframe.

    Pry the vibrator up from the chassis, but do not remove it as it soldered to the daughterboard.

    Use the tweezers to free the IDOL 4S daughterboard. It includes the micro USB port, vibrator, spring contacts, control hardware, and microphone.

    Step 9 (Alcatel IDOL 4S Display Assembly)

    Remove the power button cover.

    Begin to free the Alcatel IDOL 4S display assembly by using the heat gun to warm up the adhesive securing it to the midframe.

    With the precision knife create enough space to insert a triangle opening tool.

    Use the triangle opening tool to attack the adhesive. Take your time and apply additional heat as needed.

    Once you have sliced through the adhesive, be mindful of the display cable when decoupling the IDOL 4S screen from the midframe.


    * To reassemble your device, follow the steps in reverse order.

    OnePlus 3T Display Assembly Repair Video Steps:

    Warning:

    You are performing this repair at your own risk
    We claim no responsibility for any damages that might occur

    Step 1

    Power down your OnePlus 3T phone.

    Step 2 (OnePlus 3T Dual Nano-SIM Card Tray)

    Eject the dual Nano-SIM card tray.

    Step 3 (OnePlus 3T Rear Case)

    Extricate the following 2 T2 Torx screws from the bottom of the OnePlus 3T.

    Use the plastic triangle opening tool to release the clips and then pop the OnePlus 3T out of its anodized aluminum rear enclosure. There is no pesky adhesive, making this procedure a snap.


    Step 4 (OnePlus 3T Battery)

    Detach the OnePlus 3T battery from the motherboard.

    Remove the following Phillips screw and metal bracket.

    Spudge up the interconnect cable and the USB-C port cable from the motherboard.

    Remove the interconnect cable.

    Use the exposed clear plastic pull tab to peel the 3400 milliampere-hour (mAh) battery off the adhesive securing it to the OnePlus 3T.

    Step 5 (OnePlus 3T USB-C Port, Loudspeaker, Headphone Jack and Microphone Assembly)

    Unfasten the 3 connectors from the USB-C port assembly.

    Remove the following 7 Phillips screws.

    Easily pry up the OnePlus 3T USB-C port, headphone jack, and loudspeaker assembly.

    Step 6 (OnePlus 3T Motherboard)

    Disconnect the OnePlus 3T display cable and the signal cable from the motherboard.

    Remove the following 7 Phillips screws.

    With the cables and screws out of the way, free the OnePlus 3T motherboard from the phone.

    Step 7 (OnePlus 3T Earpiece Speaker, Power and Volume Buttons Cable, and Signal Cable)

    Pluck out the spring-contact-connected OnePlus 3T earpiece speaker.

    With the tweezers in hand, carefully peel up the OnePlus 3T power and volume buttons ribbon cable.

    Remove the signal cable from the side of the midframe.

    Step 9 (OnePlus 3T Capacitive Home Button and Fingerprint Sensor)

    Extracting the OnePlus 3T capacitive home button and fingerprint sensor is a breeze. If issues develop with the home button, the absence of solder or adhesive will make it an easy fix.

    Step 10 (OnePlus 3T Display Assembly)

    Use the heat gun to warm up the adhesive securing the 5.5” OnePlus 3T display assembly to the frame.

    With the precision knife, carefully create separation and insert a playing card to start slicing through the adhesive.

    Once you have sliced through the adhesive, be mindful of the display’s cable and the cables for the bottom buttons when decoupling the display assembly from the frame.

    Step 11 (OnePlus 3T Capacitive Bottom Button Cables)

    Carefully peel up the cables for the OnePlus 3T bottom buttons from the front panel.

    iPhone 7 Plus Battery Repair Guide Video steps:

    Step 1

    Power down your Apple iPhone 7 Plus smartphone.

    Step 2

    Eject the Nano-SIM Card Tray.

    Step 3 (iPhone 7 Plus Display Assembly)

    Remove the two bottom 3.4 mm Pentalobe screws located next to the lightning connector.

    Step 4

    Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a triangle opening tool.

    With the opening tool slice through the intense adhesive and help carefully decouple the iPhone 7 Plus display assembly from the rear case.

    Unlike previous iPhone models the 7 Plus bizarrely opens to the side.

    The display assembly is still connected to the iPhone by cables along the middle-right side, so don’t try to remove it entirely just yet.

    Remove the following 4 Tri-Point screws securing the bracket that covers the battery connector and two of the display cables. These screws are different sizes, so be sure to remember where they go.

    With the bracket out of the way spudge up the cables from the logic board.

    Remove the following 3 Tri-Point screws that secure the bracket covering the upper component display cable.

    Disconnect the cable and free the iPhone 7 Plus display assembly from the phone.

    Step 5 (iPhone 7 Plus Taptic Engine)

    In place of the headphone jack is a barometric vent. Remove the following 2 Phillips screws and then raise it out of the iPhone 7 Plus rear case.

    Remove the following 3 Phillips screws.

    Detach and free the iPhone 7 Plus Taptic Engine. This sleek engine uses haptic feedback to simulate the push of a button.

    Step 6 (iPhone 7 Plus Battery)

    Locate the three peel-to-remove adhesive tabs at the bottom of the 7 Plus battery. Grab the first tab and try to keep the adhesive strip flat and wide.

    Slowly and gently pull each strip up and away from the iPhone 7 Plus. The strips will stretch to many times the length of the battery- keep pulling until they come out from between the battery and the rear case.

    And just like that, out pops the 2900 milliampere-hour (mAh) iPhone 7 Plus battery.

    9.7-inch iPad Pro Display Assembly Repair Video Steps:

    Warning:

    You are performing this repair at your own risk
    We claim no responsibility for any damages that might occur

    Step 1

    Power down your 9.7-inch iPad Pro tablet.

    Step 2 (iPad Pro 9.7 Display Assembly)

    The 9.7-inch iPad Pro Oxide TFT “True Tone” display assembly is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the rear case. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.

    Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a triangle opening tool.

    With the triangle opening tool slice thru the sticky adhesive and carefully decouple the iPad Pro screen. Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPad’s logic board.

    Remove the following 3 Phillips screws securing the bracket that covers the display’s cables.

    With the bracket out of the way, detach the cables from the logic board and free the 9.7-inch iPad Pro display assembly.

    Step 3 (iPad Pro 9.7 Home Button and Touch ID Assembly)

    Peel up the piece of black tape.

    Release the ZIF connector and carefully slide out the home button assembly cable.

    The bracket that secures the iPad Pro home button and touch ID is held in place with two gobs of adhesive. Use the tweezers to pry it up from the front panel.

    Remove the 9.7-inch iPad Pro home button and touch ID assembly.


    Step 4 (iPad Pro 9.7 Front Camera Bracket)

    Carefully slide the precision knife between the camera bracket and front panel.


    * To reassemble your device, follow the steps in reverse order.

    I hadn't seen this thread before. What a great public service!

    When gold was climbing and we were seeing opportunists jump into the market opening up "We Buy Gold Shops" in any strip mall with an empty store front, with no knowledge of the business, no money and even less integrity we knew as soon as gold went back down and the great "gold rush" was over they would be the first to exit the business when the scrap gold started to dry up. You would be surprised how many of those guys left the scrap business and opened up Cell Phone Repair shops. The lack of integrity they displayed separating the public from their gold at fractions of its worth has not gotten any better. $50 to open the phone, $50 "diagnostic fee" then they really stick it to people with the cost of the repair.
    Oh, and a big chunk of those same group of "We Buy Gold " opportunists went into legalized marijuana growing centers.
    Buyer beware in both instances. Leopards don't change their spots.
