View Full Version : New front panel for 8700g???

08-23-2006, 06:18 PM
I would like to replace the front faceplate panel of my 8700g, especially the screen, which is scratched up. Other parts of the front panel are scratched and dinged up too. But mainly its the screen I'd like to replace (and then put a screen protector on it!!!)

I've been to promobility.net, but it appears as though all their 8700 replacement parts are for the 8700c (Cingular), which is a different color than T-Mobile's 8700g.
I tried contacting them about this, but received no answer.
Does anyone know whether that site carries parts for the 8700g?
If not, does anyone know where I can get a new front faceplate for my 8700g?

You might try contacting:

BlackBerry Repair Shop.com - Offering a full line of RIM BlackBerry repair services and BlackBerry parts (http://www.bbrepairshop.com/index.html)

and see if they can get 8700g parts.

BBRepairshop told me they just got 8700g parts in today.

And Promobility also told me today that they have parts for the 8700g. But you need to call in and ask for it specifically. Otherwise, if you just order an "8700" part, they'll probably send the Cingular 8700c version,

Good to know these parts for the 8700g are out there...
