    Sorry, didn't mean to confuse you, but I meant,
    How is the housing's plastic around the hinges?
    As far back as I can remember, the AM, and even OEM
    to some extend, around the hinges cracks would be found
    after time. Do you think your housing will be the same?
    Cracks sooner? No cracks?

    No cracks yet..I get what you mean. You're talking about the i860 days when you push the flip button...and the thing goes flying up like a CedarPoint ride..and cracks the hinge area.

    with the i870 it's a different case..the hinge itself is smoother..the flip is not as heavy..and so far..so good!

    Good luck

    By the way...I just found out Pumba had a i870 video tutorial...after I went through hell with my i870 housing change!!!!!!!!!! Oh well though, I learned alot doing it on my own...one thing I figured out on my own, without learning it from Pumba, is grinding the spool when winding the ribbon, to insert it from the right side. Yes folks, you need alot more tools for this mod than you think!

    Is it just me or does the Push-To-Flip button seem to stick out way farther than normal. Is that by design?

    Ya when i first changed the housing, I didn't realize that I hadn't pushed the hinge all the way in...but now it's all good!

    Not sure if a clear extended battery cover is out in the market...but hey, I've done housing swaps for people before, through eBay, friends, and others so...hit me up a PM and we'll work somethin out

    I still know a guy in Hawaii that ships me Hawaiian nuts, dried island fruits and other goodies....only because I did a housing swap, with ringers and personalized pictures long ago. See...Nextel makes us friends! lol

    DUDE I gotta say that i870 looks truly AWSOME!!,,I can only Imagine how delicious it must look while in the matching o.e.m holster clip,,BUT I wanted to ask you about any side 2 side (Lateral-Play)movement on the flips hinge portion,,I DEFINATELY wanna make sure that I can maintain that "o.e.m" solid (0 play)feel of this radios original housing while in the closed position.Id truly appreciate it if you can give a quick test and post,,thanks man,
