I believe the answer is no but I will ask just in case.

Is there anywhere in NZ that sells replacement Nokia parts - I need a replacement bottom cover, just the bottom assembly (Nokia #257358 I believe) without the deco insert for a Nokia N8, Silver Grey?

The few Nokia parts I have needed for repairs in the past I have just imported and I can do this for a genuine bottom cover for really not much more cost than couriering the phone to the Nokia Care Centre but thought I would try locally again first.

The phone is still in warranty but I don't want to get landed with discussions over repair costs if the Care Centre claims the damage is not covered by the warranty and I also don't want to be without the phone while it is away for what is a real simple repair (the phone has never been dropped and looks as if it has just come out of the box - one of the bottom cover retaining tabs has sheared off and this seems to be relatively common problem as the cover is quite thin).

Thanks for the response Nate.

Looks like doing the import thing again - will wait until the Christmas/New Year busyness dies down and send off an order.

I bought some replacement parts for my Nokia E71 went it got water damaged, and bought again just before I sold it (needed to replace the keypad)

Pricing's pretty good and shipping takes around a week.
