    Drilled my pearl!

    Advertisement



    Okay folks...I bit the bullet and finally drilled four 1/16" holes in the back cover. I wouldn't say it is eons better, but it definitely has improved. I guess I realize why they didn't include it in the first place - the back cover is flush against a surface when it's laying down... :-\

    I noticed a huge difference just off of 2 holes. The muffled Peanuts comic sounding voices turned into audible sound.

    Now I have a Seidio cover though and it sounds as if the back cover is completely off.

    Makes a difference. Just tape the cover and drill away.I have 18 drilled in mine Its like a two sided arrow design <---> that goes around the blackberry writing. Now if I could just drill the case out for the antenna maybe I could get better coverage.

    Thanks! It wasn't too hard, just drilled a tic-tac-toe (small at first then larger) centered around the little 'lump' inside the bbbat cover.

    Re: Drilled my pearl!

    Ok here are the pics of mine. I was a nervous wreck/basket case when i was drilling . But as you can see i did not mess up (this time lol). I used a sharpie to mark the spot on the skin and used a leather hole puncher to cut the holes in the skin.

    Wow shadow63, nice piece of work! Mine only covers the bottom half the speaker, bet yours is a bit clearer as well.
