    Hello

    I was wondering where the microphone is located on the Curve 8530. I dropped my phone and it doesnt work anymore. Is it part of the housing or is it on the actual motherboard? I was thinking of just buying a new housing or a phone with a bad ESN off of ebay and swapping the housings but I'm not sure if that would fix it.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks!

    The Mic is located at the bottom of the phone. Or maybe under the keys.

    Watch YouTube videos on taking apart an 8530, you'll see every part of the phone, where they're located and connected, and stuff like that.

    Note: Taking your phone apart will void your warranty. I'd suggest taking it to the store first before messing with it. You might get a replacement for it.

    Look at the edge under your left shift/aA key, there is a small hole in the body.

    That will be where the microphone is.
