    Question Replacement 8130 shells?

    Advertisement



    Is there a place that sells different cases for the 8130? Not just a cover for the case but where you take the outside off and put a new one on?

    I found one site but they are pretty expensive $27 for an OEM case and $16 for the keypad/trackball

    For the 8830 I paid $42 for the case and like $8 for the keyboard at cnn.cn

    That price doesn't seem that bad!

    RIM really should make spare parts available for their !@#$% blackberrys! I don't understand why they're so hard to get. I talked to someone at the blackberry repairshop website and they just buy brand new pearls, take them apart, and then sell the parts bit by bit for a profit. It's insane! These parts probably cost RIM pennies a piece. I wouldn't object to paying a few bucks to cover their storage and distribution costs, but they should support their hardware better.

    couldn't agree with you more

    cnn.cn, as frenchy says, will work for cases..., bbrepair shope for LCD, trackballs/wheels...depends on what you're willing to spend
