    Pearl Latch went PING !!

    Advertisement



    I just went to change out my SD card and the back cover latch fell out.

    There is the latch button, a tiny spring and 2 tiny bits of plastic.


    It looks like the 2 small plastic bits have broken off the button.

    Does any one know where I can get A replacement button ??

    Any help please ??

    Its only 3 months old, I don,t really want a replacement, I have grown rather attached to it.

    Fitting A new latch button would only take 1 minute.

    Thanks Gaz

    I have an entire back cover (Tmob) I don't use. PM me if you're interested.

    Hi Gazar, I've seen many posts about this latch thing problem, I'm afraid that it seems the only solution is a complete handset replacement, its a design fault. best luck. Len

    Yea, just get a new one. The manufacture has a 1 year warranty on it. So you should be good. Shouldn't cost you a thing,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Yes that would be your best option. If you have equipment protection, it will only cost $9.99 for 7 day shipment or $15 for 3 day shipment of the new device. I always use the 3 day deal.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Forgot to mention the attachment issue LOL...I know what that's like. I had to give up 2 defective 7105T's to get the pearl and I miss it the 7105t.

    I had this problem too, one thing I noticed is that my first Pearl, which was made in Canada had a spring under the back cover button.

    My new Pearl was made in Mexico and has a piece of foam under the button instead of the spring.

    I feel for you. This happened to me about 2 months ago and I had to search for like an hour to find that damn spring!
