| | Damaged 8900 panel - Plz help!
Please Login to Remove!
My 4 weeks old BB had a bad fall and the panel is badly damaged, esp the crome portion on the side of the panel is chipped off badly
I can't see my phone in this state and would like to do something, need inputs on the best way to fix this. These are the options my friends have given me
1) Replace the panel by buying one off ebay - available for approx 50 USD but i hear that the warranty becomes void if a third party opens the phone to replace the panel. Buying the panel from BB directly is unaffordable, they charge approx 150 USD which is 25% of the cost of the phone.
2) get some silver/chrome paint - closest shade to the original and try and cover the damaged area with this paint/spray? Is something like this available on the market? Will it work?
3) Get a BB case/skin to cover the whole phone - not sure if this is a good idea
Plz let me know what should be the right option to pursue.....
