    I ordered a pink pearl housing to give a new look to the standard red bb. Upon installing, the earpiece speaker was not working. Took it back apart, and low and behold-there is no earpiece speaker.
    I've never seen anyone mention having to move the speaker from their old housing to the new one.
    Can anyone that has changed pearl housings tell me if I got a defective housing or if the speaker needs to be moved from the old houding to the new one?

    I changed a many housings on my Pearl and always had to switch out the speaker. I'd be surprised if other people state otherwise!

    Are there any tutorials to see how easy/hard it is to swap cases?

    I'm new to the BlackBerry world but I have a question. I changed the case out on my 8120 and after the case swap the back speakers sound funny on certain ringtones. I have them installed the same way they were in the old housing. I have a new set ordered to replace them. Is it possible that I damaged them when i removed them?? Any info you can provide would be great.

    I don't mean to shift the thread to a different topic by any means, but what would be the best place to pick up a new housing for an 8130? The black looks great, but a "whiteberry" would really make me happy

    Thanx for the vid on installing btw, props for posting the link!
