    Converting Verizon 8130 to all BLACK.

    Advertisement



    I have the 8130 Blackberry Pearl from Verizon and love everything about it except the color and white keyboard. The keyboard looks rubbery and cheap to me.

    I wanted to know if converting the Verizon Pearl to a black faceplate with a black keyboard is possible?

    If so, is there a good site to purchase materials from and possibility a tutorial.

    Thank you!

    yes it's possible but might void your warranty with Verizon.
    If you still wish to try it, check out eBay. I found a few other sites that sell those parts on Google over time but cannot recall what they were off hand.

    Good luck

    yes, taking apart your pearl is at your own risk and will void all warranties.

    The black keyboard at cnn.cn is not compatible with the verizon 8130 - the owner emailed me and said it will not work. It seams all sites just have the keyboard for 8130. Any suggestions???

    Being that the 8130 is relatively new, you may be out of options if the above site does not have the parts for it. Perhaps within a few months more replacement parts will be readily available.

    This may help you get started
    eBay has the back cover (battery door) in black for the 8130, and also the black screen framing for it

    edit: and here is a keyboard they say works for 8130, 8120, and 8100 but not sure

    I converted my VZW 8830 silver to all black. Looks great. The housing came from cnn.cn as listed above. Excellent quality and affordable. Good luck.
