    Hello and welcome to PinStack .

    The ways I can suggest both void the warranty on the phone...so do at your own risk.

    -Paint the phone
    -Change the phone housing with a different colored housing of the same model

    I'm not sure about other ways than that...unless you just get a black skin for your phone.

    i know that here in Canada telus has recently released a Pearl 8130 in Black.

    So maybe just maybe coming to the south soon. Maybe hold off for a bit and wait it out. Chances are pretty good that it will come to verizon.

    Where would one purchase a different colored housing ?

    I did a general search on eBay for faceplates and housings for the 8130. Here you go:

    Amethyst isn't Black.

    I have the amethyst Pearl 8130 from Sprint, and its a moderately dark purple, but it is definitely NOT black.

    ok, true, my bad. I was just relaying it because I was kinda disappointed that the amethyst wasn't darker.

    I know ebay has OEM black screens and battery doors. Havent found a full housing though. I just ordered a black screen to replace my cracked silver one. Will see how it all goes when it comes in a couple weeks as it ships from Hong Kong.
    IM BACK w/ a new BB 8220!

    Do you have the need for speed? Then drive it like you stole it!

    I thought CDMA phones are "locked" to their carriers. There is no "unlocking" like GSM phones to be used on other carriers. ???
