Smile Trading Pearl Housings

Please Login to Remove!

I was bored at work a few days ago, and disassembled my Black/Gray Cingular Pearl.

It confirmed what I was hoping for, that the whole housing could be swapped. Has anyone done this? I'm really hoping to switch out the housing on the Red Pearl with a White one.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Good luck finding such replacements. I'm sure it'll work if you can find the parts.

I wish they would sell spare housings. The chrome on my phone is pretty scratched up and I would love to be able to buy another. Plus being able to switch to red would be awesome.

A great information!
How could it be different, if the different Pearls are only colour versions of the same phone hihihi
