Does anyone know where or how to get a developers guide or geeks guide to tearing this phone down completely? I have a number of these, as well as old Galaxy Note phones, a broken S7 etc. And I would love to have the blueprint to know how to hack a LTE antenae, and S7 camera into my treo palm 700p..Wouldn't that be awesome? I still like it better than the modern smart phone, and just lost use of it when my carrier killed CDMA last week> :-(
