    Blackberry Cases

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know where i can buy blackberry 8700c cases? I do not mean the cases that hold the phone, i mean the housing of the phone, i recently dropped and scratched the area under the keys of the front plate of the phone pretty badly and i want to know if it is possible to change it at all. Been looking around google and these bb accessory websites to no avail. Can anyone help a new addict out? Also what is crackberry? I keep seeing that term all over the place and its something about an addiction to bb's?

    Yes you are right. CrackBerry is a nickname for BlackBerry because it's a highly addictive device. You won't be able to put it down after you get used to it.

    Try http://www.bbrepairshop.com/Parts8700.html for replacement housings.

    It has the same print on the bottom I'm worried that if I order the kit the screen will be scratched.

    FWIW my 8700r housing kit from Promobility looks new. White water indicator sticker and protective film still on the lens. YMMV, of course.

    Re: Blackberry Cases

    Not to complain about the housing cost on the above link/site, but they want $80 to $95 for a 8700g housing. I paid $90 (with shipping) for my 8700g, on ebay, and it's in perfect shape and came with the box and all accessories. Seems like it'd be cheaper to just buy another phone and change out the housing....just a thought.
