All I have to say is: THANK YOU!

My juke's click wheel got stuck, which was draining my battery. I followed the incredibly easy to understand instructions and pictures and was able to free my click wheel. I cleaned the wheel and put my phone back together by going backward though the instructions, turned on my phone, and IT WORKED PERFECTLY. This saved my from having to buy a new, large and extremely expensive phone.

Thank You so much for these great, step-by-step instructions!
