Colorware has finally launched their services for the BlackBerry Tour. You can now pick and choose your custom colors on their site and get your sexy new Tour customized just the way you want it. At this time, rapid service is not yet available so you will have to do without your Tour for a few weeks while it's off getting pimped up but for this type of customization some may see it as worth it. Also, just a side note for any Canadians out there thinking of this, the "Send Mine In" service is only available in the US. Be prepared to drop some coin though as a customized Colorware Tour will set ya back a minimum of $129 and onward from there pending on options chosen.

I love colorware. Other than how much it costs to get it done. I sent my storm in and had it done. I love how it's a scratch proof color coating they put on there. I just got home from sending my Tour :-) in.

wow @ that red housing

adamboden514

Anyone know of a service like this in the UK?

Maija

maybe on the onyx.

Pretty cool website, looks very professional, maybe on my next phone I will do this since mine is already beat up. The price is the only thing that I don't like about it.

flipbeats

it looks pretty awsome but idk if i can drop 129 just to change the color of my blackberry.. there straight colors also its not like its a specific design

joseraulnova

and its coloRware not coloware

sry im bored as you can see

devGOD

you can do the exact same thing yourself for about 60$ or less

And when you have to return/exchange you phone your out of $129 What a rip off

bigwill5150

I might be wrong but I'm guessing that sending your phone off to a third party to have it torn down, painted and reassembled MIGHT void your warranty/insurance. Of course the same thing holds true for replacing your own parts with different color bezels, face and mid-plates, etc. It looks like they take over your MFG's warranty once you send it in but it only covers MFG warranty standard stuff (say good bye to insurance) Also, that's $129 minimum for a solid color. Color combinations or premium colors like pearls are $150 and up.

I absolutely loved the idea of personalizing your phone, making it unique! Its like doing it with your car.

The colors look amazing and the quality of the job is top notch, from what I read.

Thank you so much for the link CB!

Now my Green 8330 can now have a color buddy!

And what happens when you need to replace your phone for faulty hardware? I take it you have to get it 're pimped'

They need to offer their services north of the border at least. Canada feels left out.

Ha! As a Canadian (a group who are admittedly notoriously cheap) I can say let 'em keep it. Sorry, but that is WAY too much money to drop on a colour change! I hope they find success to the south because they wont to the north.

They need to do a contest and give away a free customization! That is some nice custom work though!!

savage.a

i think this is damn cool, just took them a little time to cotton on..

cook264

DO they have any of these for the Curve?

zekelander

I love the product however comma long pause.. Lets drop the price a little for real... Way To Expensive!

MsRandall

Colorware gives you a 1 year warranty. They are very professional. I had my curve done and dropped it. I sent the faceplate back to them and they repainted it for me FREE ....worth the price but I like the black on my tour so I am passing this time on the Colorware spa

veryBB

but it cost almost as much as I paid for the phone alone.

LAURA FIGUEROA

I WANT TO CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE SCROLL BALL ON MY BLACKBERRY PEARL 8100

JReel

i might want to do a all black look, pretty cool though

Niz

Think I'll stick with the 9.95 gel skin which changes the color AND protects it for much less. Oh, and doesn't this void warranty replacement programs? No thanks.

dennis-8900

good lord have you seen their prices. i dont care how custom it is i do not see a point in paying them 150 bucks to send them my phone to be painted lol.

ecnal

It is a great idea, so great that I decided to do it my self. I used Vinyl used for making signs and laid it on the areas that I wanted to cover and trimmed off the excess.
It may not be scratch proof but it will take a hit and it can be replaced quickly.

tmp3150

What if your phone breaks and you have to send it in for warranty? I doubt it will be covered. Not to mention the cost is outrageous.

If you are paying an outrageous price to get your blackberry colored....

1) You must have money spilling out of your pockets
2) A very lonely nerd with no friends

shimojunk

I must be a lonely nerd too if I'm even taking my time to comment on nerds. LMAO

Once the system is working more efficiently, I'd love to hear more but being without for weeks? Well, that's another contest!

lauranelli

I like them, but they're so expensive!!
