    Want to Change Housings

    Advertisement



    Being as I have to wait an unknown length of time for the 8800 and b/c my housing is pretty beat, is it possible to order a different housing style (from a g to a c etc.) without too much difficulty? There are a couple of different websites offering kits and whatnot...at least my phone will look a little different while I wait

    Thanks and hope you pinstackers are enjoying a safe New Year

    Ur with TMO right?

    You can order a Vodafone, Rogers, O2 or TMO housing and swap with no problems what so ever.

    Probably another one or two that I missed, but those ones listed above are a quick and easy swap without having to change anything else.

    Sorry for the crappy pix, but click here and you will see what it looked like after I mix and matched a vodafone front housing with an O2 rear housing.

    The base unit itself is a TMO 8700

    I really like the blue and silver combination for some reason...makes it look really different than other devices...

    Next I want to go Black and Silver...Think that would look sharp.

    www.cnn.cn

    Based in China, but MUCH cheaper than the "official BB repair shops".

    Shipping will take about 10 days or so. They come wrapped with protective coverings over the inside and outside "screen".

    Good buy IMO...I purchased 4 housings and 2 keypads.
