    Well, I just ordered one through here. Will let ya know in a week or two what the quality is like. $30.00 to personalize my BB - YEAH - not a prob! I created my own graphics and uploaded it to the site. Kinda neat. We will see the quality and replaceability.

    I just received my Tego skin today.

    I am actually somewhat displeased with it. The screen cut out was too small and I had to modify it myself. With the curves on the 7100i, the skin is just large enough to cover reach the sides, but not long enough to wrap around enough to stick to the sides, so the film sticks up a little.

    The buttons didn't line up exactly, had to do some modifications there too.

    The graphics were awesome. Get someone who is a fantastic graphics designer and you could have a pretty kewl skin.

    The back of the phone desing fit PERFECT.

    For 30.00 USD, I expected a little better product. I my opinion, what I received from this company was about a 15.00 service.

    I provided them with the design (which their web site is AWESOME and very user friendly). They printed it on a very thin vinyl paper, and then cut out the appropriate design for the phone.

    All in all, it is a great idea and I am sure for some phones (or devices) it works great, but I would watch out for the 7100i's.

    Just my two cents worth.

    I have been more than satisfied with the service and product. FYI- they have a money back guarantee so you should tell them it doesnt fit right and then they could fix it.

    two questions:
    1. how do we get the discount from bbrepairshop
    2. do the skins 'protect' the device at all? i have mine in a fitting open face leather case and if i accidently drop the booger, i don't fret cuz of the case...

    just wondering, cuz im all about personalization!!!

    i just recieved a responce from BBrepair, from an earlier email i had sent them about 7105t and housings. this housing will work with the 7105t, BUT. you have to buy the complete version of the housing. it is an extra $40 but, i would make it look sweet. the full set comes with the front, back, battery cover, keyboard, keypad and silver strip. im gonna get it.

    to take apart the 7105t.

    -remove the battery cover, battery and sim card
    -remove the speaker cover (to do this put your finger nail or a small flathead screwdriver under the bottom of it and gently pull up. it should come out without breaking)
    -remove the 4 screws in the corners (t6 screwdriver needed for this step)
    -pull apart the case. there are a few plastic snap thing that hold it together. they are not structural and if you are replacing the housing then it doesnt matter if they break.

    if you need any more help let me know.
