Hi George,

nice to hear and i hope your phone works well!

Dominik Schnabelrauch -

Thank you for an excellent guide! Clear instructions and great pictures. I followed the steps and it worked flawless. One comment regarding Step 4 - I had greater luck opening from bottom side up rather than from left to right.
