"In fact, this is one of the very small handful of black Verizon Wireless 8830s ever made and the only one you'll find on eBay."

The phone looks great, but the statement you made above is misleading. No black 8830's were made for verizon, it's just a replacement case, if someone who didn't know better purchased this and tried to do a exchange would have their warranty voided by Verizon.

Verizon will not honor a warranty for a device you bought from someone. When you activated it, it is activated as "Customer Provided Equipment." Verizon will not replace your device regardless.

They have, I sold a 8830 to a friend, and soon after the usb port stopped taking a charge and they replaced it free of charge. And I purchased the device myself off of ebay.

What about my statement is untrue? There are, in fact, a very small amount of black Verizon 8830s floating around out there with black cases on them.

While Verizon themselves produced no black 8830s, we, the user community produced a couple, hand-built, lovingly-crafted examples.

So there.

Anyway, I shipped the silver case along with the unit and would hope anybody unfortunate enough to require warranty work on the thing would swap the case out for the silver one.
