Its actually very simple. Just be careful when disconnecting the small ribbon from the mainboard. If you go to Cellular Nationwide Network - 3G, Sony, Panasonic, LG, SonyEricsson, Nokia, Tools, BlackBerry, and go to the Blackberry 9000 area you will find videos on how to dismantle and re-assemble a 9000. I recommend watching it first. The lens is glued to the mainboard, so be gentle as you pry it loose. Be sure to disconnect the ribbon first with a thin, small screwdriver.
Also, before you purchase a new LCD, you should know that there are three types and if you get the wrong one, it will not work. The three types are labeled as 001/002, 002/004, and 003/004. The designation is printed on the back of the screen, so you will need to take the screen off the mainboard to see what type you have.
Again, it's not that difficult. That's one of the things I really like about the 9000. Just check the video, go slowly at first and you'll be ok.Future Blackberry Bold 9900

Unlike the older phones such as the 81xx and 83xx models the Bold 9000 does not have a
separate protective lens cover. The LCD and lens are one complete unit so disassembling the
device is necessary.

The BOLD 9000 DOES have a lens cover on top of the LCD. I replaced mine about a few months ago. I switch off between my white lens and black ones depending on which housing I have on my phone. Anyways, when I bought my replacement lens it didn't come with any adhesives. I didn't use anything to stick mine together...I just put it on top and it stays on when u put the phone back together. I was lucky enough that I didn't ruin my lcd while removing the old lens...I know a lot of people have ruined their lcds this way. Good luck to all !

Well, after scratching my display, I wasn't aware that it was possible to replace just the lens so I replaced the whole LCD. if you shop around, they're not that expensive at all - under $40.00 in most places. If you can save even more money by just replacing the lens, that's great. If it seems simpler to replace the LCD - then that's certainly an option as well. Just trying to help.
