Please help. I need the type of cmos battery for Blackberry 9800
I need to change the memory battery in my Blackberry Torch 9800. Does anyone know what type of battery is inside the phone (on the motherboard)? Also, where can I purchase one? I have been searching for 2 weeks now. Locally, no one has been able to help. I called AT&T and Blackberry, no one was able to help. I really need help with this. Thanks

The Bold 9000 and 9700 apparently have a small button type CMOS battery on the main-board. There are several old threads about it. If there was an issue with the phone just not booting up or taking a charge, just a quick "pop out and stick back in" would fix it. Sometimes, a replacement was needed. But they weren't easy to take out. In some cases, the contacts holding the battery would snap off the board, breaking at the solder points.
But, I have no idea if the Torch has such a battery. And, the 9800 is not nearly as easy to take apart.

At the risk of going too far off topic, I can confirm the 9000 has such a small battery. I have not seen any references to it for the 9800. I've reviewed a few disassembly vids and don't recall one.
Why do you feel you need to change it? What's wrong?
