Cell phones generally look like they're difficult to crack, but that's seldom the case. The Sony Ericsson C902 is one of the easiest phones to disassemble because the smaller parts are connected to larger pieces. To get to the LCD screen, you must take the entire phone apart, but the procedure doesn't take long.

Turn off the cell phone. Remove the back cover, battery and SIM card.
Slide up the top part of the phone. Use the flathead screwdriver to lift and peel the small square stickers off both sides of the phone and the long sticker below the keypad.
Extract the exposed screws.
Turn the phone over, and lift the battery compartment. Then pry the clips in the metal frame up with the flathead screwdriver. The battery compartment should come out.
Disconnect the flat cable on the lower-right side of the phone. Don't pull on the cable, rather lift up on the connector to remove it. The assembly the cable is attached to should come off.
Lift the circuit board out, and disconnect the three flat cables attached to it the same way you disconnected the one in Step 5. The circuit board should be free from the phone.
Turn the phone over, and remove the keypad. Peel back the white pad underneath from the left side of the phone to the right. There is a flat cable attached on the right side of the white pad, so be careful not to tear it.
Lift the LCD screen assembly out of the phone. Remove the light strip running along the sides of the screen. The strip is held down by tape, so remove it to take off the strip. Make sure the strip is intact because you'll need it for the replacement LCD screen.
Place the light strip inside the replacement LCD screen the same way that it was inside the old one, and tape it together. Put the LCD screen assembly back inside the phone, and follow the steps in reverse order until the phone is assembled again.
