    After doing an 8890 conversion from an 8290, would it be possible to rig the phone to have the active slide on/off function? (in other words - can I ghetto rig the shit to answer when I slide it open?)

    Man - I got that same shit off ebay...It took me about 3 hours to do since it came with no instructions. Then when it was done, it felt all cheap, even thought it was the metal kit...
    I ended up just putting my old 8290 kit back on - but I broke it a bit taking it apart (why not, I wasn't gonna need it anymore, right). So now it's all jacked and the LCD goes out everyonce in a while...

    Moral: Don't break your old kit, you'll prolly go back to it...

    Oh - and I don't think there would really be a way to have it answer when you slide it open...

    Good Luck

    Why would you want a fake 8890? Do you want to impress people into thinking that you have that phone?

    Can I interest you in a "Rolex" for $50?:fawk:

    an 82 series phone will never be an 88 series.

    Have you guys taken a look at the 7650 yet. Cool phone. it has an integrated digital camera.

    yeah and even if it does come to the US it will probably be a couple years since it hasn't even been released in Europe yet.
