    isnt it very time consuming and have a ton of teeny tiny little parts involved in removing and reinstalling into the new casing making it risky to change a casing out? at least thats what ive been told...plus a lot of touch connections so that if everything isnt 'just' right the phone wont work properly again, is this true?

    also...where do you buy the black or whatever color bezels from?

    well in total i would estimate that it has around 20 screws and if you want it done right, take your time. i used a tape to stick the tiny screws onto it and labeled them so i would now where they went. It's not that hard if your handy and like this kind of stuff, just look for a good tutorial and you'll be good
