I can't remember where, but someone said that either RIM or some third party site would be selling parts for the Pearl, such as the housing.

If your phone casing is messed up, consider installing a Seidio rubberized case. I just installed it on my Pearl and it is so tight fitting that to others who look at the phone it will seem the phone is all one piece and they will not know you put a case around it.

It's the rubberized case, not the other hard sell types.

Yeah. I contacted RIM this morning...they said they dont have them avail. I also contacted a BB repair place and they said they dont have any yet either but will let me know when they do.

I'll probably just get a case to cover things up until I can change it out.

Thanks for the help gang.

Get that Seidio rubberized case, I cannot say enough how pleased I am with it. I suspect after installing it you will pass on fixing the Pearl's housing.
