Default Finally Some Reasonably Priced Parts!

Please Login to Remove!

I have known about these people for a long time now, and have purchased parts from them in the past.
They have real pearl parts for very reasonable prices.
For instance a pearl mechanism for $13.99!!

That's way too much money for just the trackball... Did you lose it or was it just dirty?

It was so dirty I was embarrased. I use the device VERY heavily on a daily basis. I am so dependant on it I was scared to take it apart to try and clean it without having a back-up. The other cheaper site was back-ordered so I bit the bullet. I have tried everything to clean the old one (it's sqeaky clean) but is still very dark and dull. I have a few other things that I want to try but no-one seems to be able to return it to white or something close to it once it has gotten dirty. I am now cleaning the new one weekly with a q-tip and alcohol. Holding up well so far!

Yeah, I did not realize how dirty my trackball looked until I compared it to my friends Pearl today (She got hers yesterday). I have not cleaned it in about 2 months, I think its time!lol.....

In the past I picked up slvr parts, they were OEM and new. Recently I bought a pearl keyboard at the same time I bought a front glass for another blackberry and everything was new and oem.
By the way I am not affiliated at all with this place, they are out in china.
I just wanted to make a point that all the other places that I have encounted have been gouging us....these guys are reasonable and reliable.....

You might contact these guys and see when it might be available again. They sell them but are out of stock.

I wonder if there is anywhere you can get the T-mobile white covers?

Just a battery cover or the entire case in white? I purchased a white battery cover on ebay a while back. I haven't seen the the entire case available, though.
