    Hey sanfran, why does your Pearl have holes in it right next to the camera? Is that some kind of mod?

    No, I only have pieces of cases. Back when I transferred about 100 tapes to DVD I tossed the tapes into recycling.

    When doing this I noted that the plastic case material seemed like it could come in handy for whatever.

    So I cut them into sheets [about 10 of them] and stored them in a zip lock bag.

    I really appreciate this thread. The pictures put it over the top. I haven't ever laughed this hard reading the stack.

    Yes, that is the speaker mod that was talked about in another thread. It is supposed to be the Blackberry logo, although it did not come out so clear.

    I actually even impressed myself that I knew where those were. I had run into them a few days ago when I was looking for something in a cabinet, so I vaguely recalled where to find them.

    I personally like the fact that they were in a zip-lock bag...MY favorite storage container!

    FINAL ANSWER

    1. Black electrical tape over camera hole (underneath battery cover
    2. Fixed two black pieces from VHS tape covers in the two holes in the battery cover
    3. Additional insurance by black tape from below the battery cover

    Whew!! But now I have a Blackberry Pearl with no camera, working perfectly (no java.lang errors, no theme issues with all themes exposed, no battery issue, no ringtone issue, no LED issue, no speaker phone issue, in fact - no issue at all .....)

    How long will this perfection last I wonder...
