    I'd like to know how well it tolerates fingerprints. Vacuumplating is usually pretty sensitive to that.

    as far as fingerprints, yeah they're definitely more noticeable than the white one, but I'd say equally as noticeable as the black back.

    hope this helps

    What I mean is, over time, will the oils left from skin contact etch the vacuumplating? Keep us posted on that, if you would.

    I did this with a red backing.. Although it looked amazing.. It completely ruined my cell phone signal to the point I removed the 2nd half of the paint (where the antenna is).

    was it the metallic red?

    I changed out my wife's back with a gold one and had the exact same problem. She would drop calls like crazy, the phone became almost unusable.

    I thought I might have screwed up the antenna but i switched it out with a non metallic colored back and it worked just fine.

    You have to see what theyre made of. From ecaseshop ill see description saying "aluminum case" (its a back housing, not really a case tho) which is probably why the reception is shot. I am going to get one for my 3G but Im still trying to find a good deal without it being aluminum. And yeah the ones I saw were for red and light blue.

    Those are some really poor photos. Care to get some better ones? Also, isn't that backing more susceptible to scratches?

    Yeah I'll try and post better one. Also, the back isn't any more susceptible than the black one

    Edit: looks like I screwed up the phone speaker on the top. Could this be a disconnected cable somewhere, or what?

    Did the same thing but with red and it looked good but cuts down the gps totally and the signal too much that it wasn't worth it
