I noticed my earpiece is not working at all and decided to disassembly my Relay. It was a shock for me, when I saw, that the part marked on red here:
looks like that in my phone:
(I am even wondering how is my phone working now...).

Could somebody give me a name of this part? And can it be a reason for not working earpiece, or should I disassembly my Relay "deeper"?
I found this:
I was looking only on the length of this cable, so I'm still not sure if it's what I'm searching for.

Thank you for your answer demkantor.
The second post which I didn't read before helped me mostly:

Could you confirm if the part I put with a link in 1st post is what am I searching for? I couldn't find anything for "main flex cable" in Google and also I don't think it's the same part.
And is it possible to change it without replacing the whole screen-part of the phone? The disassembly manual ended with same step I did.

Unfortunately I can't say for sure as I haven't yet torn this phone apart myself
I would recommend to pull out the broken cable and try to match it physically to the one you linked
Otherwise search out a thread that someone here has done this and ask if they can confirm
Best of luck!

When I had to replace a broken screen on my Relay, the replacment screen came with that cable, screen, digitizer and top case. If there are any more still being sold elsewhere, it might be easier to replace then entire top half of the phone. I had cost me $40 about a year ago, unfortunaglly I can't find it again listed on ebay. Good luck
