    Hi all,

    I have a Blackberry Q10 with broken connector for flex cable. Where to buy parts for mainboard or broken mainboard from dead phone?
    Thanks.

    Unless you are VERY good at soldering the small pitch of these connectors, you may be better served by replacing the main board. Google search shows a number of places. Here's 1:

    As Carl said, but to add:

    The main-board is your Q10, it has your PIN.
    A working main-board from another used Q10 will be another PIN, so you are basically getting another Q10.
    A Q10 purchased used for parts may have a PIN that has been blacklisted, making it difficult to activate and use.
    Most used main-boards sold online are "for parts only", meaning they have non-functional internals and no PIN.

    Currently a new unlocked Q10 goes for $200US from BlackBerry, it may be less hassle to just get a new one.

    Hello. thanks for answers.
    The phone is not mine. I do repair phones. The phone owner wants to repair. I have a few boxes with dead phones for parts, but i dont find a similar connector.
    I'm in Russia. I send message to canadagsm.ca and waiting for answer. Also i find a few dead phones on Ebay in Germany and UK.
    Sorry for my English.
    Thanks
