    Not sure, probably best if you strip your phone yourself. Been a while since
    I've had mine open but I'm pretty sure there are some ribbon cables that
    connect everything. A link how to disable your phone is below. Once you have
    undone the screws any put a pin to ease off the case, just run a credit card
    round the outside of it. Probably cost more to send the phone to be repaired
    than to buy a new one

    Re: Nokia 6600 / NHL-10 problem - no audio from earpiece

    I think its just a leaf switch inside the bottom of the phone but it should
    come up with the headphones icon on the phone to tell you that it was using
    hands free/headphones.
