    Has anyone "pimped" their BlackBerry? By that I mean any customizations such as replacing parts, mods, engraving, plating, etc. Curious to see what kind of frankenberries are out there.

    I'm thinking of overhauling my Q10 with a new keyboard, silver bezel, and hopefully a nicer Q5 screen if that is possible. Would also love to find or customize the battery door to look more like a 9900 with the glossed glass weave and rubber grips.

    Please post pics!

    I'd like to know as well. This sort of stuff was pretty popular with the legacy devices. Especially the Curve series.

    It would be, if it were actually made of gold instead of plastic and gold-colored paint.

    lols I wasnt expecting Paris Hilton to propose marriage to me, just for it to be different than every other one in public, and it was. It turned heads if you left it on a cafe table while reading the newspaper, hillarity.

    if it was REAL GOLD ebay would have a problem selling them. Real gold "plating" might be better but that fades also. Solid gold? 4getaboutit

    Didn't they make a limited number of real gold plated BlackBerries a few years ago? I think they were selling in Saudi Arabia (of course). I believe I saw the article on crackberry... will have to search for it.

    I believe it, look at Vertu cell phones. They will always sell, there is always a market for expensive things for the wealthy, like Rolls Royce, etc.

    There are many places you can take anything to get gold plated. There is a popular place in my city apparently where many people take their firearms to get gold plated.

    My friend taught in Saudi Arabia for a while and he said everything is gold plated there, and if it isn't, and it can be done, they get it gold plated..
