    Thank you so much!! Your easy to follow instructions enabled me to remove the charging port from my soon’s old phone, install it in mine and get my phone back together in one piece!! It is now charging properly for the first time in months!!

    Thanks for the detail on the tear-down. That made it very easy to get in to clean the mini-USB connector and to replace the microphone.
