    Warranty Sticker?

    Advertisement



    I've heard plenty of different versions of this. I want to change my new 8900 original titanium bezel with a black one. I've read on different forums that it does and does not void your warranty because you have to remove or puncture the red warranty sticker. Does anyone know if it does void your warranty or can you get away with it?

    You're asking if removing the warranty sticker that is put there to prevent you from opening up the unit voids the warranty if you remove it to open up the unit. I would think so, yeah otherwise they probably wouldn't have put it there.

    The desire to be different is great. I bet if the 8900 came with a black bezel everyone would be wanting to change it to chrome. I changed my battery door to black and might have actually changed to gray if it was black to begin with. Same thing with cars. My last BMW had front reflectors that most people in my club changed to body color. My current car came with body color inserts that everyone changed to reflectors. Kind of funny.

    I heard it does. The sticker is there too make sure you don't open up your blackberry. I believe it also detects water damage. I haven't opened my blackberry up or anything and mine already broke. I haven't even messed with the darn thing. So if you ever need anything done just tell them that it was in a ridiculous place and you had to take your battery cover off alot too reboot it. That's what i'm gonna do if I ever need to send mine off.


    Good Luck!

    Remove the sticker with tweezers and then place it back exactly where it goes. That is what I did.

    Yeah, I dunno caboose, seems silly to tell them it's in the perfect place, when it's not. They need to park that sucker right behind the speaker or something.... I'd have to agree with Ashabees and moose. Most encounters I've had with RIM have been pleasant, so you might wanna bypass your carrier if you do have any troubles with them because of the sticker.

    i say this because, it is in the prefect place. if you were to open it yourself you would void the warranty, but seeing as how they placed it in the perfect place, you can just blame the missing sticker on the fact that you pulled your battery mulit times. thus saving your warranty status, or at least it would seem,,,
