    Hey folks...

    I recently "inherited" a i90c from someone else at work here
    and while I like some of the upgrade features over my i60c,
    the housing and keypads on this thing are really beat to
    s---, um, I mean crap.

    I'd like to try and get a new housing for this thing, but nearly
    everything I see on ebay looks tacky to me. I want just a
    nice solid black (or deep navy?) housing. And I need a
    "full replacement"... the shell, the keypad, the faceplate,
    the works!

    Anyone know a reputable place to get something like this?

    Chris

    Try your local Nextel service center for this. I'm not sure what they'll
    charge, but it won't be super cheap. Aftermarket housings are available in
    tons of colors and designs, however they will void the warranty. Go to a
    reputable retailer or authorized service center because there is a lot work
    in changing these out.

    Thanks for the advice, however, not an option so far.

    The NEXTEL dealer I went to said that they can't repair it if it's
    just for "cosmetic" reasons.

    I understand that it would void my warranty, but the phone isn't
    under warranty anymore, and I've done similar work like this
    before with different items, so I'm fairly confident that I could
    pull it off.

    I have ordered and swapped out housings from www.daydeal.com. The product
    seems pretty good to me. Also, you can send them the phone and they will do
    the conversion for you, but you can get it from them and go to a Nextel
    service center. In Jax, Fl, they were not going to charge me to swap out the
    housings. It may be different where you are from.
