Thanks again for this!

Thank-you! A life saver. I was determined to keep my Brigadier.

Thank you for the detailed instructions. I’ve had my E6782 for 5 years, ever since they came out. The battery life has noticeably deteriorated in the last year even though the rest of the phone still works great (although I was never happy with the camera). Still deciding if it’s worth it to attempt the battery replacement, or just get the newest version of this phone (two generations newer, at this point).
