    Default iPhone 3G Colour Housing?
    Inspired by cpjr Project Red iPhone i went out and got a case for my iPhone 3g.

    It's plastic.
    The apple logo is a low quality reflective silver paint-over and the overall quality is pretty low.

    Someone told me that these low quality case's will effect my reception greatly.

    is this true?

    Is there a website that sells these coloured housing but with OEM quality?

    Please send links.

    Thanks.

    Thanks!

    I on the top where the sim tray, headphone jack and power button are there are some faint moulding lines.

    Do you have this too?

    yeah there and at bottom tip for ya is to take apart phone and use orinal chrome bezel as this fits better make sure you cut away old glue from oe cover
    As this helps it to sit flush with bezel especially on corners bave super glue handy as youll need it to glue sklent switch i did anyway and also dont over tighten screws

    mine looked identical to yours on the inside and yes i have the moulding lines around the sim tray.

    make sure you remove the oem bezel and use that, and post some pics

    good luck

    I call BS. Thats the same exact housing you can buy anywhere else that is made in hong kong. And the add lies because it states that the housing is "metal" which is total BS. That must be your own website cause its the only thing you post about here.

    I'd believe the noob
