HTC Desire Battery Connectors (can you buy them?)
When you remove the back cover and battery from the Desire there are 4 metal battery connectors in the bottom left corner of the compartment. On dropping my phone I've managed to break one of the single prongs in the middle of the 4 and now the phone won't even turn on.
I've tried 3 different repair shops (both high st and online and all initially quoted £30-40 but have then subsequently said they can't get the parts) to no avail and O2 wanted to charge me £120 as they said it required a new mother board!!!
Pretty simply, does anyone know if these parts are available and, if so, where from, or does it require a bigger repair as O2 have suggested? I presume that only the small unit that houses all 4 connectors would need to be replaced.
