    Bezel and back housing were from ebay. The back housing came with an antenna cover fir $56 and the bezel was $26. I preferred the housing with the lettering, it looks nicer than all black. Thr bezel is chrome not plastic and it maintains its shine.

    hey schtozo I'm assuming you did all the work yourself, would you say that the process of opening your phone was easy or difficult.

    for me it was pretty easy as i have opened numerous iphones and changed like 5 or 6 lcds too. i have soldered batteries too.

    the key to open the phone is a metalic spudger to remove the antenna cover and the most important thing is a dentist pick as it will work like a charm to open the back housing. it is like slicing butter

    Just looked around eBay. The prices for black bezels and backing are A LOT more than I initially thought. How much did you purchase yours for?

    for the housing replacement, do you need to do anything special other then swap them out once the back cover is off?

    Yes you have to swap the flex cable as well from one housing to another. In my case i bought a new one to keep my original housing intact. The flex cable was 10 dolars on ebay. It comes with no screws. But you can purchase a set on ebay too. They are around 5 bucks.
