    Not much going on with the 9700 right now so I figured I'd share my BB fun for the week. I ordered a green to white fade bezel and battery door from ebay for 10 bucks. It was real easy to install and fits great. Looks even better Here's a link to mine

    Interesting for sure. Always fun to customize the look of your personal items, lends them some personality and reflects upon the carrier as well. Thumbs up for the guts to try it, alone!

    Green in White Housing case for Blackberry Bold 9700 | eBay

    Just search 9700 Green Housing. There are all kinds of awesome looking new shells. I'm actually tempted to get another. They are cheap, shipping was decently fast (considering it came all the way from china), and it was a breeze to put on.

    For anyone who hasn't tried it; it's as simple as popping off some plastic and taking out 2 screws. Simple

    Ok I just saw this as I was looking for the link to the one I bought. I ended up ordering this one because it has the full housing. Little bit bigger of a project, since the internals need to be swapped. However, in 2 weeks my 9700 should be FULLY white and green No more black from the housing! Ill post pics when I'm done. For now, here's the link

    They keyboard feels great! The back button clicks a very insignificant amount, but it doesn't bother me. I started this whole thing because the 9700 had been dropped in water. Not sure if that made the keyboard harder to press, but I would almost say the new one is easier.

    liking the green and white, i wonder how it would look with red....

    a little bit off topic but....
    btw, judging from that picture i can tell that your a car nut like me
    that red box looks like a torque wrench (judging by the size of the redbull...i think 3/8 torque wrench?)
    matco toolbox
    a brake pedal holder/depressor
    some shop red automotive shop rags...
    blue box in the back guessing had/has brake pads in them...

    Haha good call! Yeah it's a bit much, the white an green, but whatever, it's custom. I'm definitely pumped to see yours when it's done. Gold black and red would be sweet. FYI the actual "housing" was a HUGE pain in the ***! Swaping the covers for the flash, taking out the flash, swapping the 3.5 jack, taking off the back of the back, taking out the charging ports, were all SERIOUSLY tricky. I kinda wish I would have made a video Well, here are pics of the final product. Done and done.

    And metllicamilitia, like I said earlier, both our packages were held up in china, but mine arrived today so I expect yours any day.

    No problem! I should mention, everything seems to work except the charging contacts. I found out this morning the cradle charger is not working, so good luck with that one All in all, a very fun project and I'm glad I did it. If anyone has a white (or black) 9700 they want to throw the green to white fade on, just let me know. It's the one from the other pictures

    Okay, a few pics, from the original white and mistreatment to black to black/red/gold, unfortunately I'm stuck with the white screen for now, I will eventually fix that ha ha.
