View Full Version : Are there any places in the US that would do a body swap?

Hi. A few weeks ago, the corner of my N9 chipped off (I'm not sure from what). It isn't a big deal- the phone still functions properly- but the entire thing is slightly less pretty, and it's REALLY bothering me.
I don't trust myself enough to replace the housing myself... are there any places in the United States that would do it for an N9? I live near New York City... are there any places there that might do it? Or, perhaps a place I could mail the phone to?
And, how much would it probably cost?

That sounds like CIA territory.....
But in all seriousness that's the kind of thing any phone repair shop should be able to do for ya so long as they're prepared to source a new fascia (body), you could provide it though, hey there's even a tmo thread talking about how to do it yourself if you're prepared to get your hands dirty.

Oh yeah you'd probably be looking at $150+ to be generous if you go through a repair shop.

If you insist on a shop doing it, look up palcowireless they are Nokia authorized and can do it, but if you are patient you can do it on your own, it really isn't that hard.
