BlackBerry Curve 8530

Place the phone on a flat surface with the screen facing down.
Remove the plastic backplate by pulling up on the bottom of the cover.
Remove the battery by pulling up from the top of the battery.
Remove the two screws midway up the phone on the left and right sides using a T6 Torx Screwdriver.
Warning: One screw will have warranty tape covering the screw. Removing this screw will likely void the phones warranty.
Flip the phone over so the keyboard faces up.
Insert a plastic spudger into the screen where speaker resides.
I recommend going from the side. There are two layers to the cover. You need to make sure you get underneath the bottom layer if you plan on reusing this cover.
Gently lift up plastic screen cover until screen cover separates from screen.
Continue until screen cover is completely removed.
Insert the spudger into the top of the plastic siding on the front of the phone and lift up until the siding lifts up.
Slide the tool around the entire perimeter of the phone until the plastic siding is completely removed.
The keyboard should slide off of the phone now that the plastic siding has been removed.
To detach the screen, there are two screws at the top of the phone to be removed. Use the T6 Torx Screwdriver to remove the screws.
There is a gold ribbon on the top left of the phone. Lift up this ribbon gently until it isn detached from the phone.
Note: When reassembling, the ribbon should be reattached before replacing the top screws.
There are two clips on each side of the phone. Insert a plastic spudger between the clips and the screen.
Use pressure to unlatch the screen from the clips.
Now that these clips have been undone, the screen should lift up easily.
Now there are four screws that need to be removed. They are located at the bottom of the phone and can also be removed using a T6 Torx Screwdriver.
Now the motherboard will lift up out of the plastic backing of the phone.
