Yes, I have dropped my 7290 a few times, and the housing itself is damaged. I have the technical ability to replace the housing, however, I am having a heck of a time finding the OEM Housing for the 7290.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

The 7280 housing might do the trick as well, the newer 7280 and hopefully the OEM housing also have the aluminum bezel like the 7290. Just verify that both are the same in size.

The 7290 is not the same size as the 7280. The 7290 is about 2 millimeters thicker than the 7280. Additionally, the 7290 keys are teardrop shaped, while the 7280 keys are oval.

The 7230/7280 housing is unfortunately not compatible with the 7290...
