    Wifi and bluetooth died how much to get Motorola to fix?

    My phone is a AT&T and I am in Canada so going to AT&T is not going to work.

    Make sure you reset your phone to factory defaults before you assume a hardware problem. My money would be on a software problem.

    If you have already done this, then nevermind . . . :p

    You might be better off looking for an atrix with a broken screen and buying that for some Frankenstein style repair work.

    Unfortunently the Bluetooth and Wifi radios are part of the motherboard, so they can't be removed and replaced independently (at least not without hardcore soldering).
    See here Step 10 shows the layout of the chips and their functions.

    Is it possible to replace that chip with the working one from the mainboard (broadcom 4329) ???? I have the same issue and i wanna repair my atrix... Thanx

    I suppose you could replace it, in theory. You might be able to re-flow the board and replace it. Although I think a much simpler route, would be to get a board from a unit with a damaged screen, and just swap the entire board.

    Thanx for such a quick reply,but i think that its much cheaper to replace the chip only... Broken atrix is about 100$ on ebay + shipping to Bosnia :(
