Question 8700G Replacement Case

Please Login to Remove!

My 8700g looks as if it has been through hell and back; does anyone know if and where can I get a replacement shell?

Thanks in advance,

Ed_NYC

Smile Please disregard

I found it here:
:: ProMobility :: - Blackberry Parts and here's the thread:
OEM Replacement Housings/Faceplates?

Should've searched better... Sorry, please close this thread.

It's a shame pro mobility is so bloody expensive.

That 90 bucks in plastic better be filled with gold.

I just purchased a new housing for my 8700g via Ebay from Bonnieshop2008. Cost me 12 (UK pounds) for front and back cover including battery cover. Now I need to switch the covers over to make sure it all works ok but assuming it does this is a great deal!

Ebay, I bought one for about 10 bucks, you'll need to get a torx screw driver.

will a 8700g OEM housing fit on a 8700r? i mean, the dimensions should be the same... but will the keypad on the 8700r line up with the case on the 8700g?
