OEM Replacement Housings/Faceplates?
 
I've searched and searched and I can't seem to find OEM replacement parts for any BB. I've read the other thread on this site discussing the same issue, but it didn't sound like anyone found a solution.

Since there's more members now...I decided to ask this question again in hopes that some new folks may know.

Does anyone know how to get an OEM housing/faceplate for a 7280? I bought a dummy BB through eBay hoping to use its faceplate. Unfortunately, the dummy BB's are NOT made with the same quality plastic that the real BB's are. In addition, the 7280's have the metal bezel around the display...and the dummy version has the plastic (painted) silver bezel.

Call me anal...but as much as I use this darn thing, just can't stand looking at the scratched up corner. :( Somehow, the leather case holding my BB go knocked off my belt one day by a box in my hands...resulting in a case of pavement poisoning! It still works like a champ though!! :wink:

If anything you might have to go directly to RIM to get a replacement for you berry.

I believe that the 7280 has the (silver painted) plastic bezel.

Jeff,
Thanks for the post and the link, very interesting. I know some of our TMO bretheren who have the TMO version of the 7100t would love it if you stocked the 7100 cases (all except the TMO version of course). There has been plenty of disgust with the current TMO version and I cant blame them I wouldnt want it. The current Cingular version (7100g) works well as I am sure the O2 and Vodaphone would also be big sellers.
I for one would buy two kits of the Cingular case so I can mod my sibling's 7100t

Seriously, I'll bet that there would be a good market for those.

Regards,

Dave

Hmm, interesting. I would agree that i would love to change the housing of my 7100t to something else maybe the v or g models. I would assume (maybe wrongly) that internally they should all be the same so replacing the shell wouldnt be impossible? would love to hear any stories/information anyone might have on this.

Please do let us know! (y)

I'm interested as well

robnick2 06-13-2005 10:12 AM

Any word on if the 7100 g or v cases will work with the BB 7100t. I love my 7100t, but I don't like the case.

bobdavisnpf 06-16-2005 03:57 PM

How about different colors? I like the 7100g case ok but would prefer a different color, a nice blue or something.

Blackberry 7100T to V/X conversion
 
This can be done if you can find some way to replace the keypad circuit board. The 7100T/R are the same as are the 7100G/X. The case is interchangeable but the keypad will not function unless you change the circuit board, which I have not attempted.

In deed! Would love to have my scratched up 7510 looking new again. Very interested. Anyone heard back from NEXTEL347? (y)

Modified 7100T
 
1 Attachment(s)
I successfully modified my 7100T by replacing the keypad and housing. It was quite easy (though a little costly) and now looks a about a thousand times better!

I ordered the housing kit and keypad from: http://www.bbrepairshop.com/parts-7100.html

1. Complete housing for BlackBerry BlackBerry 7100X (interchangable with 7100g) - OEM
2. Replacement Keyboard for BlackBerry 7100g and 7100x

The existing keypad does "work" with the housing, but not well (far left and right column of keys need to be pressed in hard in order to be recognized.) Replacing it is easy because the old one basically pops out and the new one pops in.

The finished product (sorry for the crappy camera phone pic.)

Has NEXTEL347 posted anything anwhere on this forum since this post ?

toddz 03-16-2006 04:11 PM

@misfist

So the total for both was $89.99 + $24.99 correct? And the 7100X complete housing included front, back, battery door, keypad (just the outer plastic keys and rubber pad)? Then all you needed was a new 7100G keypad circuit board?

Just wanted to get this straight if I pull the switch on this mod.

Thanks,
toddz

Sorry for the delay in replying...

The keyboard for $24.99 includes the circuit board. So, the cost (w/out shipping and tax) was $114.98. There is a less expensive ($59.99) housing replacement that looks pretty good too.

Hope this helps!
