    Customizing your 8900?

    Advertisement



    Since this is my all-in-one berry which I've been waiting for (and for once I'm not looking into the future of "what's next?!") I've decided I want to mod it.

    I ordered the black battery door case:


    and I spoke with John of hitechtattoos to coordinate sending up (their main hq is in toronto) the door to have my previous ninja avatar sketched onto the back. they charge $35 dollars and from the pictures I've seen on the website it looks like their work is top notch. I'll be sure to post pics.

    (previous ninja for those who don't remember):


    By the time all is done I'm hoping ghost armor will have come out with a version for the 8900. In the meantime I'll be using a plain black silicone skin and screen protector. I've purchased a black holster so I'll be able to show off the back art.

    Anyone else have plans?

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I REALLY plan on this being my last Berry so I might send it in to Color Ware, or have someone do something custom for me!

    You must get a black bezel. Chrome is so un-ninja!

    I didn't even know about it.. now that is SLICK.

    I'll have to watch the disassembly vid online and mull it over, but I definitely like the look of that black bezel.

    -edit-

    just watched.. feel a lil ill. I don't want to mess up the nice gasket seal.. =0/

    Agreed.

    I just ordered it.

    I'll have some time to calm my usually steady ninja hands before it arrives and handle the task.

    Hey Cherri! It has been way too long. The 8900 release lured me back to the stack, as the 8320 release did.

    Yep, same laser process I believe. I'm excited.

    Anyone who swaps out the bezel, do post about it. I just don't want my brand new phone to have a slightly loose feel compared to this out-of-the-box airtight feel.

    I've used them in the past for my pearl. I saw some user pics of the armor and outside of cheaper price, the quality seemed just as good and dried amazingly clear (even with user using flash) and came with same lifetime warranty. I always like to try out new products so I'm going to give it a try and post a review as well for the stack.

    Hey Cherri, don't you have an 8220 on TMO, can't you upgrade to an 8900? I'll be getting mine on 2/13.. Can't find a TMO rep to give it to me early. I'm so jealous about that

    That's what I thought, but CC is on AT&T. I bet if you keep pushing, you'll might be able to get one early..

    Welcome back blackninja ~ long time no see

    That's gonna look pretty sick. I can't wait for AT&T to release this. My next and lasting berry
    for a while and I'm also going to customize it while I hold on to my 8310
