I ordered a new speaker and as soon as it came it I jumped on here to look at the directions. followed the directions exactly and now it works again. Only suggestion is to be careful removing ear piece cover, there are 4 small fragile plastic prongs at the top that can easily break. I broke 2 but phone still works! Thanks for the help!
