    On either side of the battery latch are two 'gold' colored pieces. I'm guessing this is an antenna of some sort. I dropped my pearl a while ago, and one of them is totally broken. it rattles and isn't connected to anything.

    I'm not 100% sure on what this is. could it be the bluetooth antenna?

    either way is it possible to replace this? perhaps buying a new housing that includes those two little pieces. the closest I found for a VZW Pearl 8130 is below:


    Blackberry 8100 Pearl Back Housing with Antenna & Battery Door Latch contacts, Blackberry 8100 Pearl Cell Phone Parts


    but the description says 8100, and the picture looks slightly different that the back of my pearl (ie, I think mine has a spot for a second speaker).


    does anyone know of somewhere I can get a housing that will work in my VZW pearl 8130?

    The gold contacts are for a desk charger.

    CNN.CA has a lot of accessories. Try there
