Unhappy Looking for replacement parts

Please Login to Remove!

On top of my Pearl next to the mute button is a silver piece that has gotten scratched. Is there anywhere I can find a replacement for it? I've found sites that carry the silver side pieces and battery doors but not this particular one. I'm guessing it's because it's not replaceable, but I refuse to believe that! Does anyone have a line on where I might be able to find this piece?

It's acutally part of the mid-plate. The whole plate can be purchased but you will have to tear it down and re-build it! (Actually, that piece on mine had the chrome flake off of it after a few months with no damage and for no reason).


BB-8100-04 BlackBerry 8100 Pearl OEM midplate w/ chrome side rails- Motorola, Samsung, SonyEricsson, Mobiado, Sony, Dopod/O2, BlackBerry, Acer, Micr

Yeah, what's up with that? The rest of my phone is pristine but that piece looks awful. But that process sounds scary, I'd probably ruin the dang thing! If I buy a new mid-plate, is there somewhere I can take to have a pro do it? I would totally cry if I ruined my BB. Thanks for the info and quick response BTW.

I was so upset by it...no I have just accepted it. Not to mention I am do for an upgrade and ATT just got the 8120...I'm really excited! You are welcome for the information. Ok, here is what I found on the repair. They don't mention doing the mid-plate but you may want to get in touch with them (I am sure they would) they *say* it's a 24hr turn-around. Great if it's true!

One last thing: my Pearl is white and the mid-plate on the site is black. Do you know if they sell white ones? Am I S.O.L.?
