    Replacing housing ?

    Has anyone changed the housing on the blackberry tour, with an aftermarket housing? If so can you give me a little info and help?

    Thanks

    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    Let me know how it goes. I've taken apart the Bold a few times. I'll be doing my Tour here shortly with a new chrome housing.

    Also, that video supplied here can't really be used for the Tour. The Tour trackball can not be removed until the housing is off of the device.

    Thanks, but thats for the curve. Here's the deal, I bought a new housing, I got my phone apart with not a lot of trouble. But the housing didn't come with the convenience keys, or the buttons on top of the face plate. also missing is the piece that goes on the inside of the backplate with the charging pad contacts and the sd card latch, flash. These parts do not come out of original housing without damaging either them or the original housing. Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere to buy these parts? If needed I can post pics.

    Thanks

    They haven't got anything on their website that helps. I sent them a message to see if they can help.

    Thanks

    Sorry, that was the best I could locate on my lunch break from the courthouse. Should I keep looking for more vids or does their youtube site have more closely related materials?
    Man, jury duty is messing with my searching skills.....
