    I cracked my screen on my ATT passport today so I went looking to see if I can DUY, and it looks like I can, good video on youtube.

    Then I search for Passports on eBay being sold for parts. Sure enough, I find some, but here's a weird thing. Three of them have no top rear door (where the sim card and mircoSD go) no cover on the very bottom of the phone, between the edge and the keyboard and all boot up to test mode but don't work. Anyone know what the deal with them is? Oh, and they all have the original plastic over the screen and the back cover.

    I want it just for the screen, so it dosesn't matter if they don't work, but I was just wondering what is going on with them. Are they rejects, are they returns that blackberry disables then sells to these guys to get rid of?

    I guess common sense would say the broken Passports have issues that don't involve the screen but that cripple them. Probably wise to check with the seller and see if a screen would help you out.

    People break those doors, fairly often so they are probably scavenged off the broken Passports first?
