    Hey guys need some help as I'm in a pickle here. I've been using my Z30 for 2 years and I like it quite a lot for what it is and what I require for it to do and does its job. My Z30 speakers is not functioning well and I believe it's broken. At this point it's very difficult to find a Z30 STA100-2 version online, although you have eBay and Amazon. In terms of price it's quite pricey for what it is. Is it still worth getting another Z30 or just wait till BlackBerry releases another device (IF they do. That is)?

    Nope, where do you buy the components? I thought the speakers are separate components?

    Just bought one 3 weeks ago from Expedite Electronics and had absolutely no issues with them. Phone arrived within a few days, tracked and is factory unlocked and new all for 158. Well pleased with it.

    Was it the Speaker or Mic where someone posted about doing a bit of gentle prying on the contacts to fix the issue???? They did have pictures and you do have to open the phone.

    Thanks, but did a quick research and it appears the back plate holds the speaker as well as other functionality. I've ordered it through etrades supply as it was recommended by a few users whom had good experiences with. Fingers crossed, hopefully this should fix the speaker issue without having to fork out $300+.
