    Have any of you tried buying a new housing for your BlackBerry's? Is the black still glass weave (for Q10 or Z30)? Does the keyboard feel great, too? How's your experience? I'm planning to buy one for my aging Q10 but I'm afraid that it's not the same materials as the original.

    Does this answer your question

    Just be careful because most of the aftermarket housings are from China, the fit and finish is not the same as the original, and the durability may not hold up for a long time. The KB felt good but the paint will wear away

    It's hit and miss, some of the suppliers are very good and some will send you garbage, which is very hard to return unless you fancy paying for the return postage to China.

    I'm hoping to find an OEM full housing for my Q10. It's hard to know which seller tells the truth, though.

    Look at there "Feedback" That usually the best way. On eBay anyway.

    Future Supplier and ETrade Supply are both generally reliable.

    Sweet. Reminds me of Burt Reynold's Black and Gold Trans Am.

    I've bought numerous BB10 items from etradesupply and been happy every time. Z10 and Z30 screen assemblies, Z30 midframe, Z30 back cover (black w/weave) - everything you see there graded S+ is claimed to be an OEM part and in my experience, I fully believe it.

    They have a ton of Q10 stuff including housings. BlackBerry Q10 Replacement Parts - ETrade Supply
