using a Torx T6 you can open the Nokia 6230 by removing 6 screws on

Andreas Toenne asked in cs15uc$2sg$02$1@news.t-online.com whether
one can remove the camera module and whether then the mobile
still works. this can be useful if want to take your mobile
legally to sensitive places, where cameras are banned.

    to something more of a lingua franca.
