    Let's say i have a 8330 and i want the awesome case of 8350i. Is it possible for me to switch them? I don't want to buy a phone just for it. I mean do sell them? and I don't mean like a otterbox case i mean like the shell.

    EDIT: I think it might be called housing?
    EDIT 2: I found one but it cost 40 bucks. NOT WORTH IT.

    yes it's possible. i couldnt get my case off so i went to a kiosk at the mall that sells cases and the guy took it off for me. if the case is the same size it should be fine.

    Yeah on ebay I can't post the link cause I only have 9 post tho. I found it for 15 bucks free shipping. Pretty tempting, but its half useless considering I'm getting a new battery cover (seidio) And it would be really nice because my current screen is scratch city

    Shop around cnn.cn or ebay for a new housing. The 8350 is bigger than the 8330 so it will not fit. However, if its just a black housing that you are looking for then give those 2 a try. Also pay attention to what you are getting for the price. Some will include keyboards, midplates, trackballs and rings, torx drivers and prying tools, etc.

    In terms of price that is completely up to you. How much is it worth to you to make your BB unique and not stock. I purchased from cnn and blacked out my 8330 and now my gf has it and she wants it pinked out, so ordered from ebay this time around.

    Good Luck!

    Edit: Also make sure you purchase specifically 8330 parts.

    There is no picture on this posting. Should do the trick tho. Also, keep in mind that if you order from a HK seller it will take a bit longer due to international shipping and clearing customs and what not. Look around and i would find the best seller with the best feedback and price you are looking to pay.
