    Advertisement



    I'm still undecided with what new blackberry to get, and since the curve 2 still isnt due until next year, I think I'm just going to buy parts for my titanium from cnn.cn.
    I'm thinking of getting a full black keyboard,black faceplate with black lens. I beleive I will need to purchase the t5,t6 screwdrivers as well.
    Anyone order from them before? What parts did you change?

    I've ordered a new trackball assembly from them, and had no issues with the service.

    As for the Torx driver, try Sears. I found a T5 there for like $3.

    I have replaced the Lens, trackball, keypad and side rails on my curve. Only for cosmetic reasons. I wanted to make my device look new again. Install was pretty easy, just remove screws and remember where they go. you can find tools online as well. I purchased a Lens on ebay and it came with a T6 and a opening tool. I already had a T5 Screwdriver. Depending on what your trying to replace on your curve you may need a T5 and a T6 screwdrivers.

    I replaced everything on my curve (housing, keyboard, siderails, middle part, speaker and lens)including the earphone speaker I pulled out of a broken 8100. Its easy and took me about 15 mins.

    Cool, cant wait to take this baby apart

    Funny thing is, I just tracked my order and noticed its coming from China.
    I thought the .cn was Canadian, forgot Canada is .ca
    No wonder 2 day express was so much :/
