    Just an FYI, I got a red-numbered keypad from cnn.cn, and it was slightly "irregular". If you look closely at it, the alternate characters above the letters are directly above the main letter, instead of slightly offset like the OEM keypad. Look at the pic on the cnn website, and compare it to a pic of the Bold on BlackBerry's website, you'll see what I mean (I attached pics below). It makes the letters on the keypad seem cramped, in my opinion. Also, when looking at it in person, the white characters aren't as bright as on the OEM keypad. I switched back.

    I did find that dealsishop carries the actual oem-style keypad with the red numbers and the alternate characters properly positioned. The photo on their website shows the correct model, and I emailed them to confirm.

    i got my keypad from cnn and my symbols are offset just like the factory one, i didn't even notice when I ordered it that the symbols were directly above the letters, but like i said mine are off set.

    I got mine from truesupplier.com. Shipping was fast considering it also came from HK. Generally very happy with my purchase, though they new keypad seems maybe a little more stiff than the old one. Maybe it's just that the keypad is new?

    I bought my first replacement keyboard from ebay and the keyboard sucked really bad. I bought another from cnn.cn and it was perfect. I studied the keyboard closely and didn't find any irregularities. The only difference is that the white keys aren't quite as bright and the keys are slightly stiffer, but that could change with some use. I actually enjoyed the added firmness of the keypad. You are right to want to change to the numbered keypad, it looks so cool. I also bought a black trackball from cnn.cn. It is the best trackball I have ever had on a BB.
