    (I'm starting a new thread now because I have searched Crackberry 6 times and google three and I'm not finding much help on this at all. All I read is that this piece is supposed to "easily pry out" and I have a very thin kitchen knife that I've been messing with it with, and still nothing. I have put a ton of force on this by now and I've probably even f*cked it up which means I'll have to order a new one and go around with my phone looking like the picture below (yay ).

    This piece just does NOT want to come out. Are you guys 100% positive this just pops out? The keyboard did, yeah. This piece? No...in fact it's like it's PART of the bezel itself, when I'm looking at it closely.

    What am I not getting?

    I bought this: Chrome electroplate bezel for Blackberry bold 9000 W/ side button and door lock latch (Light green color)

    Yes, I like it.

    Anyway, I was stupid as this is my first time doing this, and, I didn't realize there is no bottom faceplate cover.
    Therefore I have everything nicely installed now and below my space bar there is basically a piece missing from my phone.

    I'd like to install the bottom piece from my old bezel but I can't figure out if this is possible or how it comes out. Does it come out...?

    Please advise

    The piece *should* easily pop out, as it is only held in by 2 tabs that pop in. If you slip something in between it and the frame you can pry it out. *Make sure* that you are sliding you knife (or whatever tool) in between the bottom cover and the frame, and not trying to pry the frame itself.

    One note: If you are dealing with the OEM bezel, which I think you are, they apply double sided tape as well, making it a bit tougher to remove. I played around with my old bezel (I replaced my bezel with a new one) and it took a little force, but I was able to gently pry it off--there's a good amount of adhesive in place.

    Let me know if this helps!

    Thank you so, so much for replying and trying to help me out with this.

    Yes, it's the OEM bezel I am trying to pry this piece off of. I keep bending it slightly and I'm like "ahh" and stop. haha

    Okay, so, 2 tabs that pop in, huh? I'm looking all around this piece for those 2 tabs but I'm not really finding them. I bet I just keep skimming over them though because I'm not entirely sure what to look for...ugh. I don't know why I'm having so much trouble with this last part.

    Okay so slip something in between the piece and the frame/bezel and i can try to pry it out. That's what I've been trying, but here goes...
