    Black or Blue

    Advertisement



    I recently put my pearl to rest and got the 8800 from Cingular. All the pictures that I have seen show the 8800 in Black, but the one I got is Blue. I would much rather have it in black. Is it only the Cingular 8800 that are Blue? Is there any way to change the case into the much sleeker looking Black 8800's case?

    so you got a blueberry huh? lol sorry.
    Looking at Cingular's website it appears Black not Blue, not sure what to tell ya. I'd call the store and ask if they have them in black, instead of the blue you received.

    on a side note, just saw they now have refurb Pearls llisted for $59... wow that's cheap.

    Re: Black or Blue

    is it like a greyish/metallic blue?

    i think thats the only one cingular offers, its kind of like their pearl, like a charcoalish blue!?

    no offence but i dont know why cingular has that color in the pearl and the 8800, i really dont like how the blackberries colors are like an off dull color, i like tmobile's sleek gloss black pearl and all black 8800. i'll be getting my tmo 8800 in two days, i'll post to see if its all black too or not, but i think it is

    That's because the camera taking the photo had a hard time telling black from midnight blue (which is the color of at&t 8800's).

    Sure -- just buy a black 8800 housing (good luck finding one) and swap. Parts aren't going to be very abundant as the 8800's are still new. ebay's probably your best bet.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~actually if you search for debranded housing you can find a black 8800 housing. It is something like 49.99 USD if I remember right. Hope this helps.
