How To Disassemble The BlackBerry Bold

By Kevin Michaluk on 20 Aug 2008 12:26 pm EDT

The vast majority of us are still waiting to get our hands on the BlackBerry Bold, but that doesn't mean it's too soon to learn how to take your baby apart! The good folks at put together the BlackBerry Bold dissassembly video above. And we do mean disassembly. Right down to the wee bitty bits, and there's no putting it back together. Enjoy!!

naviwilliams one yet, and here they are taking one apart! Oh my goodness...


The display has no housing, so no more dust between the front bezel and the display... =)


i agree with navi , i cant even get one, and they're tearing theirs apart! i wanna see the video of them putting it back together! i bet i could take a nuclear missle apart, but putting it back.....i'd probably have a lot of extra pieces!

waoahh...sorry for the accidental typo on the original post! fixed. no slur intended. didn't even know that was one to tell you the truth - just wikipedia'd it for the definition. before my time.


I agree with navi! lol
but i appreciate the vid!
at least when/if i can get my hands on one, i'll know how to take it apart!


wow its going to really suck now when you have to change the trackball. i don't want to have to take my phone apart just to change the ball


That's not cool man...I could have given that phone a good home, and they just killed it for no reason...the horror! lol :)


yea seriously please dont tell me its that hard to remove the trackball.


Thats alot of taking apart just to get to the trackball! That sux since I change my trackball every couple of months!

Need BB

Where do u get that tool to fry open the Bold?


Does anyone to know where I can get one of the blue-ish/purple tools that was used to pry things apart in this video? It looks magical! haha


on their website


that was pretty cool :)


That video almost makes me cry...


Hey I'm new to this, how do I send out messages?


Send it to me, I'll put it back together


Does anyone know where to find an extended life battery for the bold, I am new so I hope this is in the right place


Thank you so much for this. l watched it about 10 times and then proceeded to do it. Your video gave me the confidence to do it myself and now my phone works as good as it did brand new. And for the record, you don't need sound. You just watch...Very nice and thanks.
