    Use a solder suction, they have them at Radio Shack.

    i tried desolder braid and that seems to be a little hard so i'll get the suction
  4. Ya, solder suckers are little tubes that suck up the solder you dont want and than spits it out. It's a handy little tool.

    the solder sucker is the best way to go unless u wanna really heat up ur solder and just tip ur part upside down and scrape it off, risking damage
