    Help: I need a Plastic Retaining Piece Cover for my 8100

    Advertisement



    Hello all, I have a 8100 RED blackberry. I need to get a new Plastic Cover. I have a huge scratch over the display. I can not find one anywhere. Only battery covers, can anybody point me in any direction to get what I am looking for?

    This link may work for you, as well:

    ProMobility.com has it available for $35.00 Sorry that I couldn't post the full URL, as I don't have Stack level 2 as of yet. Click ProMobility Parts & Devices, and search for 8100 parts, and there's a Red replacement lens there. I can't vouch for this site, but it's one place that I found the replacement part that you need. Once you replace this, I'd recommend a skin, such as one found at BestSkinsEver, or many other places. It is a clear, protective film, that works great to prevent scratching.

    Wow, sorry about that suggestion. $10 to ship an item like that is a little outrageous. It'd be fine if you were getting other items, but there's no way it'd cost nearlg that much to ship. Maybe from China, but that's insane. At least it has a photo of what you're looking for, I guess. It might be a good idea as suggested to contact your phone carrier to see if they might have spare/refurbished parts for sale. Either that, or maybe check ebay.

    Excuse me, I thought it said $10 shipping... $46 for that is incredibly ridiculous. I wish I had checked shipping before I have you the link. If they have a phone number on that site, it may be worth a try to see if they really charge that much for shipping. If so, I'll take them off of my bookmarks for sure.
