Any Ever replaced Housing on this bad boy ?????

Was lookin for some help. My S710 suffered some asthetic damage been looking at replacing the housing.

Anyone know a reliable source to purchase replacement housings??

Anyone actually done it themselves?

Sony wants to charge a flat $200 fee to service the phone. F***ing ridiulous!

found a SE Tech that quoted me $35 to replace - but since phone is discontinued he is having trouble locating housings>

ebay has housings. finding someone to put it on is your own deal. i thought about trying it myself but by the time i put heavy consideration into it they disco'd it. and i'd hate to try then mess up and have to process another exchange and get that retarded w600i again and have to re-purchase my s710 for the 3rd time.

did you purchase housing on ebay??

Do you know who you used??

I found a tech who will install for $35, but am a little weary about buying aftermarket face.

Thanks for the response

Thanks, I found a power seller on ebay that sells the kits from Canada for $20.

They are silver and aftermarket but look pretty good.


Appreciate your replies.

your a funny guy huh Rolling Eyes , i do have fait in myself but with phones such as this one you have to know its internal setup. i right now dont know it in full so therefor i don't want to break mine without having another s710a as its replacement. as when i had to process an exchange for mine the last time i got the w600i for it which i didnt want.

but however your funny Laughing
