    Well I said I would do it back in March, and people said post pics so here they are. btw i was waiting for my warranty to expire before i did it (July 31st) thats why it took so long

    It wouldn't be possible to replace the rubber reception band and the aluminum backing from a 2G and add a 3G backing would it?

    where did you get that red housing? it looks like it'd be near OEM, since it fit in that case.

    The bezel just kinda sticks in.

    looks good, i wanna do it to my 3gs, but i think i will wait till after the warranty, exchange it just before, and then attempt this.

    Looks good. How well did the mobo and other components fit in the new case? I know that the non-OEM cases sometimes are a pain in the butt.

    When our red housing was done, Duco Plastic Cement was used. (Same kind for hobby purposes)

    I would suggest a glue of some sort as the red housings dont' have the holding tabs like the OEM housings do.

    O.P how is your phone holding up after these months?
