    Question [Q] Housing Interchangeability?

    What other, if any, housings fit or are interchangeable, as replacements for the D2G?

    Sure, what other device(s) housing parts might be compatible, be used to, replace parts on a D2G A956?

    Or, do parts from a Droid 2, R2D2, Milestone 2 or other similar device have interchangeable housing/casing parts that might be easier to search for/find to use to repair/ replace damaged ones on a Droid 2 Global?

    From my understanding, the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global are near on the same in terms of hardware. But I will need comfirmation from someone else. Why are you asking? Have you broken your phone, or are you trying to make some hybrid phone?

    Just a quick note, D2G parts are everywhere. The D2G is the replacement phone for vzw for a lot of customers, so its become very easy to come by them.

    I am searching ebay for housings, not finding many options specific to the D2G, but have found for other similar looking devices. In my search, the R2D2 device caught my eye. I've been able to find more D2 complete phones, broken as is for parts as well and wanted to confirm before bidding/buying.

    Thanks,

    Don't buy off of my word. I'm not 100% sure, but I'm sure others will chime in tomorrow, as its late in the states.

    D2 and D2G have different cases. Try looking up the photos of the back side and pay attention to the camera there.

    Well, recently I tried a parts swap between two phones (Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global)
    note : the Droid 2's touch screen doesn't work on one side it failed so I decide since the Droid 2 Global has a good touch screen and in better shape keyboard I decided to swap them out since the Global wouldn't boot (bricked). And, I didn't have the tools to just check the digitizer and I was worried about the adhesive crap reapplying it.

    They both boot but no graphics and the Droid 2 would just vibrate like it was getting a call until you pull the battery.

    Rambling, but

    Yes you can throw a Droid 2 motherboard into the global edition, just know you need the back housing to make it pretty much fully compatible and also change out the screen and digitizer possibly.

    The fact that the digitisers are different was mentioned at least several times on this forum, though.
