    7130e to 7100x Housing Swap

    Advertisement



    I don't think I have seen this particular swap discussed. I love the 7100g and 7100x housing but the carriers with those have poor coverage where I am. So it is either a Verizon or Alltel 7130e CDMA Blackberry for me but I don't like the looks of them. Is this swap doable?

    Thanks

    I don't think you can do this swap. The buttons and layout are different. Even if you try to put the 'guts' of the 7130 into a 7100x housing, the keypad might not align properly with the circuit board.

    You can try to get a second 7130 housing and paint it black. Check with Paul over at bbrepairshop.com to see if he has any.

    The 7130 has a completely different form facter from the other 7100 units. Doubt it will work.

    What about using the 7130c case? I have a sprint 7130e and like the C case much better

    Has anyone found any more info on this subject? I would like to get the black case for the 7130e if it is possible. Nothing wrong with the current greay (Verizon) case, I'd just like to get my hands on the black one!

    I think the Verizon and Sprint 7130 housing's are interchangable.

    I had thought about doing something similar when my friend ordered a Sprint 7130. I thought I would like the all black case better but I doind that I actually prefer the Verizon case with the silver accents better.
