Default 8700c Faceplate

Please Login to Remove!

New to the forum. Great source of info.

I'm looking for a replacement "faceplate" for my 8700c (front/rear/battery door). Anyone know a source for these?

I'd prefer a black one, but since I could not find much on the 'net, I figure I shouldn't be too picky.

I previously found a post on this topic, but none of the replies with sources had anything available for the 8700c.



Thanks.

have already called them. the pro-mobility people said that they do not have one available, but would put me on their wait-list.

In any event, pricing is out of this world high (I guess it's good to be king):

front cover = $40.00
rear cover = $39.00
battery cover = $10.00

total = $89.00?? for a cell phone faceplate??

i'll keep on lookin!!

You do realize that those are OEM parts right?

No one makes knockoffs of BB housings like they do for Nokia or what have you.

It's cheaper than paying for a new device. You gotta pay to play sweetheart.

Default you dont know..

the golden story...the prices of TV slashed only when chinese started mass producting it

all you need is to get a chinese to make the spareparts....you might get for fricking 5$ and with extra 2$ they might even drop this @ home
