    Done plenty on 2g and 3g.

    You can order them fairly cheap off ebay. Not real hard to swap as long as you've got experience working with small electronics, if your not fairly inclined...I prolly wouldnt try it.

    I would like to get mine changed out as well CPJR how much do you change them out for... Do I need to get the backplate off ebay first... I saw your post in the buy/sell area but do not have enough post to post in there yet...

    Do you paint it or just replace the housing?
