Well, I was walking around downtown, not realizing that my leather holster was facing down towards the ground. I pulled it out when it rang, and it fell onto the cement!!! The phone still works, and I don't mind scratches, but this is real bad! Luckily the screen is okay. I can't believe it - just over 5 days later, I'm looking for a new housing!
Anyway, there's a fantastic company up here in Canada who has parts and does work for Blackberry's. I found their housing to be slightly expensive, so I began my hunt on eBay. I found a great, local deal. A guy has a BB 7280 with a busted screen - PERFECT housing. Now, I know that the 7280 is newer than my 7230. Is it better? What new features does it offer? Also, are the screen's interchangeable? This company in Toronto charges just $15 to change housings/LCDs (if you provide all the stuff). Want my objective is: take LCD from my 7230, put it in 7280. I know how easy it is to do this myself, but I'd much rather take it in, so that if they break it, they are responsible.
