    pdaparts.com is also an excellent place-they also have tons of step-by-step instructional videos.

    you can also get replacement parts on Ebay. Screens, cases, keypads. Some will include the torx screw driver as well as a case splitting tools, because you will need them. Try and do it without the prpoer tools, and you will butcher your phone. I learned the hard way. I tried to disassemble a 7100 once and when I was done my wife called it "FrankenPhone"

    I replaced mine on my 8703e about a month ago. It was pretty simple. I bought a screen off ebay & bought the torq screwdriver at napa. I went ahead and removed the complete housing just to be sure I wouldn't damage the LCD screen (you maybe able to use a small flat screwdriver and pry up the broken screen w/o removing the complete housing, but I didn't want to try it.) Its easy to do just remove the screws from the back of the housing (there's 7 in all) I also used a blow dryer to heat up the glue on the old screen for easier removal, stuck on the new screen, reassembled the housing & reinstalled the screws. All in all it was about a 10 min job and it was my first screen replacement. There's a tutorial in the BB guides/how to's/FAQ's sub-forum on how to remove the housing.

    I just replaced mine, and my wifes about 3 weeks ago. I got both cases from Ebay with eveything included, even the T6 driver for like 40 bucks. Each case was only like 15 bucks. And they have a bunch to choose from. I would check it out. Mine is now Silver with a dark blue and silver keypad...

    You got the housing and keypad from ebay? I just ordered a new bezel, cause I scratched mine putting the screen protector on.
    I feel like a dope.
