    Thanks,

    Depends on where you get them from. I buy them in bulk from China, but you can probably find them on eBay...

    Yeah I just bought mine on ebay but I'm not sure if its going to be decent quality.

    If it is colored, it is not OEM. You will get a good sense of the quality once you receive it. The good thing is that most of the housings on eBay are not too expensive, so if it does not fit properly or quality is bad you are not out too much money.

    Yea, with the colored housings it is very hard to find good ones. I hired a quality control guy in China who inspects all of my items before they are shipped. In the past few months he has been able to find me the best quality colored housings.

    I have found that a heat gun used in the correct way can improve the fit of these housings with the bezel. If you try this however, be prepared to screw up one or more housings in the "learning process" and make sure the iPhone is completely disassembled(Bare Housing) before attempting.

    lol when doing this make sure everything is out. the headphone socket, the mesh pieces for speakers. i forgot about those and had to dissemble everything and redo it.

    lol, yeah, that is a mistake that can be frustrating. I have left the battery out a few times while doing housings swaps. Very annoying!

    I have a 3GS 32gb. Can I use these 3G 8b and 16gb housings I see all over the place? Those green ones looks particulary sweet.

  14. #34
    Yes, the 3G housings are compatible with the 3GS.

    I also want to replace my iPhone 3G housing. I just ordered a bunch of parts from sw box (new glass w/ digitizer , new OEM chrome bezel, new chrome buttons) and did not pick up a housing there because I want a color one and couldn't tell how good the quality was on the ones they offer.

    From reading this thread I see that yes a OEM black/white housing would be the best option but as I mentioned I want color.

    Can someone point me to a reputable seller that has quality color 3g housings? I have looked all over the web and the pics I have come across all look the same quality but vary anywhere in price from $7 to almost $20. Hard to tell if they are any different or if the sellers are just greedier than others. I'm willing to take a chance on something non OEM to get a color housing but want to make the best effort I can to get a quality one...anyone have some input on where to go for one? I love the ones on colorware.com but they are on drugs if they think I'm paying $175 for a damn piece of plastic!!!

  17. #36
    My advice is only buy from sellers 99.5+%
    If I helped thank me!

  18. #37
    I have found the best quality I think that is out there. I have several if you need one...

    to who says a 3g case works on a 3gs motherboard, 3g cases do not work on 3gs phones. you have a different size camera on your 3gs which does not fit on your 3g case vice versa.

    Housings work, camera holder is different, and is not attached to the housing
