Changing the case on my 7100i
 
I have a 7100i that does not work with a spotless case and a new 7100i that works great that has a bunch of of dings on it. I have the right star tool and feel that I am capable of making the swap. I just need direction- no lectures- on how to take the the case off and replace it. I can get the for four screws off and the bottom cap but there is obviously something else holding it in place. Please either provide directions or point me to where directions exist. Thanks

i had the same issue last week. have you tried a sim card swap? the old stuff to the new phone? i had tier 2 bb support walk me through it. the slightest bump or ding scratches this phone. i have no idea how to change covers, hope that helps!

There are actually 6 screws. Take out the two screws on the bottom edge. That will let you take off the bottom grey piece. There are two screws under the battery cover. Take those out and then there is a wiggle squirm push maneuver to slide UP the top grey piece with the antenna attached. It has some little corners that hook and try to keep it from sliding up. There are two more screws hiding under where that cover was. NOW you are ready to split the shell. About 1/2 inch above the bottom edge of the silver part of the case, there is a catch that holds the front and back of the case together. I have a stiff flat wire thing that I stuck between the halves from the bottom and sort of twist and pry carefully, and the front and back eventually snap apart. It should be pretty straight forward after that. I do have some pictures if it would help...
