    Does anyone have a guide to remove or a disassemble guide for this phone? Rather have a louder, clearer speaker than a stand.

    TIA

    You would need to disassemble the device to a point is my best guess.

    Just drill holes in it. You can do it easily while still making it look like it was designed that way. Think outside the box my friend. At least, that's what the machinist in me says.

    How about...how do I remove my kickstand so I can drill holes in it? I would rather not drill the holes while it is still in my expensive phone.

    Just use an angled block of wood between it and the phone.

    Would like to keep it stock and not drill holes, just in case I need warranty. Have no use for the stand it is useless to me.

    well just leave it as is then. Like it was said before, removing it does not necessarily make your speaker louder.

    I have to disagree, however I think the TB is fairly loud, having the kickstand down does make it slightly louder.
