    Thanks for the info, Richard (& Edward S). I wouldn't have been able to
    progress without it.

    Got the front casing off fine according to the instructions. I ended up
    using two old guitar picks as my levers! They worked a treat. I had in fact
    tried to get hold of the 'correct' toolset from a dealer on eBay, but
    unfortunately it never arrived -- "lost in post" :-(

    I took the risk of removing the fascia from the casing, partly because the
    replacement casing I'd bought (from a non-working T39 via eBay) had more
    damage on its corners than the one on my own phone! It came away quite
    easily in the end; the glue used to hold it on is surprising soft. Just
    pinch the edges of the casing (once it's been taken off the back of the
    phone), and the edges of the fascia pop up slightly. Move your tool (in my
    case, the guitar pick!) into the gaps, and slowly and GENTLY prise it away.
    I say gently because otherwise there's a risk you could bend the metal at
    the narrow sections.

    Of course, the fascia being replaced on the other case can come off as
    roughly as you want!

    A few drops of superglue on the underside (taking care not to apply too much
    so that it doesn't spill out onto the case), and just drop the new fascia
    into place on the original phone.

    Cheers.
