Default cnn.cn housing does not work with verizon 8130

Please Login to Remove!

just a heads up for anyone who was planning on buying the housing, it does not really fit. the housing is exactly the same but the keypad is not. as you can see from the picture it is "thicker" while the verizon keypad is recessed.

cnn.cn keypad-----------------------------------------------------verizon keypad



anyone with the sprint 8130 willing to open their phone up and see which keypad they have?

Has anyone else experienced this? I was looking to purchase one to switch out with my Verizon Silver.

I want them to get the red housing in. Verizon is the only damn carrier that doesn't have red! Just my luck

Cnn.cn now has the red housing and CDMA red keyboard in stock (as of Feb 10, 2009). I just ordered them! I may be taking a chance with the keyboard... but I've been longing to switch out my pink Pearl for a red one forever!
