Thanks for the info gents, I ordered the part last night and with the help of the tear down instructions, I should have a working phone for my son again. As for the soldering, that's no problem, I've done tons of pcb rework and repairs in my current position. Thanks again for all the help, this has to be one of the best sites out here for information.
