    How to change your T-Mobile curve to a red curve

    Advertisement



    A couple people have asked me how I made my t-mobile curve red, so here it is:

    I bought the faceplate:
    http://www.gsm4world.us/shop/blackberry-curve-8300-8310-faceplate-screw-mount-p-1072.html?osCsid=6698e32b743febc6091799f637916ac1 ...some places charge 49.99!!! Be careful, I paid 12.99.

    I bought the black battery cover for 14.95 (can't find the red one anywhere but a couple places said they should have it within a couple weeks) :
    http://www.seidioonline.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=869


    I bought the silver midpiece (antenna cover) by calling bbrepairshop at 1-877-423-4922 (it's not on the web site or wasn't when I checked - they charged me $10) You could use the one you have but I didn't want to ruin mine in case something goes wrong with the phone and I need to use the warranty.

    I went to pepboys and bought 1000 grit sand paper and "Dupli-color" brand Scratch Fix 2 in 1 in shade TY01598 (matches the curve exactly) about $10 total from pep boys.

    I wet sanded the midpiece until completely black, and painted it.

    The curve uses a T5 torx but I bought mine from a place overseas where they're one size off so it was a T4. I tested a craftsman T5 and it fits perfectly. If you have a quality Torx it should be a T5 ($3 from sears). If you buy one overseas who knows what you'll get!! (those cheaper cell accessory companies)


    The whole thing ended up being $51 + tax after it was all said and done. For me, it was worth it, I love red


    Here are pics I didn't have pics before so I got all of the stuff together and redid it to make pics.






    The back:


    END result:

    Nice. I remember having a red pearl and ended up finding a girl with a white one that wanted red.

    So I just took them apart and swapped housings.

    Yea I figured. It's late. That's my excuse. But I'll join the bandwagon, if we pressure her enough.. she'll buy a camera.

    Let's see pics!

    Take some picrure with the curve's camera using some mirror tricks. Tha back should be a piece of cake, and for the front just put another mirror in fron the curve. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    That'd be cool if you could do some cool mirror tricks and take some good pics.

    Why didn't you just switch phones? LOL lot less hassle and you kept your SIM card anyway.....Unless of course one of them wasn't unlocked and the other was with a different carrier....
