    Question Small Parts Request - Micro SD Door

    Advertisement



    Hi-

    I have a Blackberry Pearl that I need a Micro SD door/cover for.
    The little metal door that houses the SD card is kind of messed up, and I'd like to get a new one to replace the old one.
    Wondering if anyone has a source to purchase a new one, not sure if it is proprietary or not, but if a generic one will work, all the better.

    Thanks in advance!

    I recently needed to replace the trackball on my 8800. In looking for parts I found a HUGE variance in pricing. For the trackball I found a high of $50 and a low of $12! Of course, you need to watch for the shipping charges too.

    Anyway, here's some sites and what they're charging for a trackball:
    Cellular Nationwide Network - $11.99
    ProMobility - $30
    BlackBerry Repair Shop - $49.99
    Cellular Dr. - $39.95

    I used Cellular Nationwide to get three trackballs and paid more for the FedEx 2 day shipping (which took EIGHT DAYS to make it to NYC from Hong Kong although they didn't PROCESS the order for 6 days!) than for the three trackballs. Had I used standard shipping, the whole thing would have cost less than one from BlackBerry Repair Shop, although I might still be waiting for it to arrive!

    Great! Glad you dropped your phone
    No, seriously, this board is a great resource.

    I'm still having trouble tracking down a source for the Micro SD hinge/latch part.
    What I have sourced on the internet all seems to be for wholesale purchase in large quantities.
    If I have time this weekend, I may search at some of the (many) computer small-parts places here in San Jose.
    Thanks again for any suggestions.
