pearl housing ???
hello does anyone know where to buy a new pearl housing dropped mine and i want a new one and is it hard to replace it or should i just leave it because i will probabyl break it?
See if your carrier offers insurance you can get in on.
I just bought a dummy phone from ebay, I'll let you know if it's a good parts phone or not. I picked it up for $24. Should come in some time next week.
no the do not offer insurance on blackberry phones apparently damn cingular
Dummy phones DO NOT use real parts and are made by 3rd parties not the OEM.
And, T-Mobile offers insurance on ALL our phones.
Wow, for not using real pearl parts, the dummy phone's front clip worked great! I did however have to use a razor and thin down the front clips, but it fits like a glove. It's probably the only usable park to the whole set up. I'm gonna disassemble the dummy when I get home tonight to further explore. But if anyone else busts up the front chin, this is a great fix!

I'd really dig (not to mention pay) for some clear plastic housing for my Pearl. That would be hawt!
Dummy Phone Not Very Good For Parts
Yeah, I got a dummy too. It's amazingly similar, but the keys are not transparent (don't appear to be able to glow), the back and sides are very slightly different, and there's definitely a different trackball--this one's a nub, like a pencil eraser, not a ball. I may be able to use some of it to repair my massacred pearl, but the main thing I need is a new screen and it doesn't look like this one will work for that.
