    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~How the heck did you drill a hole that big through the thin plastic? Peoplé have drilled little holes but I think 3/8 may be the record!

    LMAO! Voided warranty FTW! But i agree that hiding the speaker was not the best design ..pretty lame even but the extended battery has a hole made for it.

    I read somewhere (not sure where) that some 3rd party group was working on this. Making a new back for the Pearl with a grill or something on the back so the sound would be able to come out better. I haven't seen anything like that yet though.

    Actually the warranty is not voided. The reason is when you do a warranty exchange you only send the front of the phone back not the back cover

    this may be a cheaper alternative to purchasing the seidio cover... how does it look aesthetically though? can you post some photos? also, did you wet sand the area before or after drilling? if so, what grits did you use?
