    i just recently changed the housing on my flip. to all who are looking do do this, i must give you one warning.... there are many little metal connections attatched directly to the housing that from what ive seen so far, is not included in most housings available online. i will suggest that not only will you need the proper tools (T5 and mini phillips screwdrivers, case opening tools, needle point tweezers), an X-acto knive(hobby knife) will come in handy! trust me, my new 8220 just came in the mail today as a result of a sorta failed first attempt. tonight i make attemp number 2 and i expect the swap to go much easier. pics to be posted by the weekend.

    9of13 did your silver housing come with side buttons? I'm thinking of swapping out a blackberry pearl that I bought for a cheap price. Only problem is it's pink and all the silver housing I found on ebay only includes housing + keypad but not side buttons.

    unfortunatly the housing i ordered did not come with buttons. but the black buttons that i already had looks pretty cool with the silver housing.
