    help identifying a phone!!!

    i was going through some of my spare parts and came across a main board for what looks like a v551 but im not sure ... if someone can help me identify this unit it would be greatly appreciated so i can reflash the phone for further testing

    The Units keypad lights up white


    however the keypad itself(mainboards volume buttns flex cable, bad pic i know) says v550


    but the actual mainboard looks like a v551/v330 or possibly a v635 series phone according to the diagrams shown on the testpoints page here
    http://www.smart-clip.com/testpoints..._V551_V635.php



    so im stuck the white keypad throws me off...

    just to note... i have tried to flash a v551 fw to it the external screen turns on and possibly the internal however they screen wont light up. so i was thinking to try another flash while im waiting for a new screen.

    Anything from the Motorola V551 / V330 / V547 / V555 / V557 series is pretty much all the same.

    Looks like V551 from the Cingular badging. You likely are having a ribbon cable problem, or even possible a magnetic hinge problem giving you a blank screen.

    not actual housing it came with, i just threw together a cingular v551 front keypad and housing with a v400 back

    yea i know the V551 / V330 / V547 / V555 / V557 series are all the same. but i was thinking it may be a v635 as well
