    Dropped my 8700r - need new housing

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I dropped my 8700r and scratched it up pretty bad.

    I want to replace the housing to one that isn't all messed up.

    Where can I get replacment housings for a good price?

    I bought one off e-bay but when it arrived it was horrible in quality and the clear screen had all kinds of goop on it.

    The seller won't replace it.

    I was going to say eBay was probably you best best.
    http://www.bbrepairshop.com/Parts8700.htmlThis Site is expensive.

    http://www.cell-phone-repair.com/This site can probably do it for you the cheapest. Again I would try your luck on eBay and dispute the first one you bought.

    Cheapest is going to be to go www.cnn.cn

    You will wait about 10 days after your order is placed to get the housing.

    I have purchased 4 housings from them and haven't had an issue once.

    They are OEM, plastic over front/rear of the screen, all the housing and the battery cover are included.

    If you don't want to wait 10 days, PM me...I actually have a Rogers housing that I purchased from them that I may let go if you don't want to wait the 10 days or so to get it from them.

    Here are pics of the Rogers Housing that I have (sorry for the quality, taken with the pearl).




    As you can see, for some reason (and I am not complaining) the speakerphone and plastic LED lens were included with it.

    Don't know if you have swapped a housing before, but you are going to have to replace the ear piece speaker from your current housing and the microphone piece.

    I can help you more if you need to know exactly what needs to be moved from one housing to the other.

    Since the LED cover and the speakerphone were included with this housing, thats 2 less things you have to switch over.

    Awesome info guys!

    Thanks.... I had mine all apart and was ready to make the switch to the new case but then I noticed how horrible it was.

    The replacement case I got had all those same parts as you mention you have with yours.

    I don't mind the wait.... if yours is a better deal then I would consider it.
