I was fortunate enough to hold one of my users E72's after he dropped it down the toilet "at a party" it did not work at all and the warranty is void, i like taking stuff apart and putting it back together again, so here we go!

I used the opening device to un clip the silver front of the phone by inserting it at the point shown in the image and then running it down the side of the phone downwards (towards the bottom).
Rinse and repeat on the other side.
Then I ran the opening device carefully round the top edges of the phone, there was a clip at the very top.
Pulled the casing apart gently.
I now have the front and back part of the Nokia E72.
To remove the screen from the metal backing plate, apply some pressure to the back of the screen plate that you can see through the metal backing plate.
Alternatively I could have used a spudger or opening device to pry the screen away, though that may cause the metal back plate to bend.
Lifted the connector pin pad of the headphone socket, it is glued on by some adhesive foam.
Insert object into the headphone socket and force object downwards to remove headphone connector (it pops up at the back), perhaps inserting a headphone jack instead of a screwdriver would have been better!
