@misfist

So the total for both was $89.99 + $24.99 correct? And the 7100X complete housing included front, back, battery door, keypad (just the outer plastic keys and rubber pad)? Then all you needed was a new 7100G keypad circuit board?

Just wanted to get this straight if I pull the switch on this mod.

Thanks,

I ordered the housing kit and keypad from: http://www.bbrepairshop.com/parts-7100.html

1. Complete housing for BlackBerry BlackBerry 7100X (interchangable with 7100g) - OEM
2. Replacement Keyboard for BlackBerry 7100g and 7100x

The existing keypad does "work" with the housing, but not well (far left and right column of keys need to be pressed in hard in order to be recognized.) Replacing it is easy because the old one basically pops out and the new one pops in.
