    Hey just thought i'd share a picture of my black bezel and new case.. the case doesn;'t have a belt clip at the back, cause i hate wearing my phone on my belt!

    waiting for BSE or some form of full body protection..

    i couldn't save the warranty stick ; < i slipped and the tweezers punctured the middle of the sticker ; <

    so here are some pics to let people know what it looks like
    (sorry for the bad pics.. just point and shot haha didn;t care about lighting etc)

    Thats a nice leather case. They seem to be available in the UK also but at a premium at fommy dot co dot uk

    Other sites may be available, use google/yahoo for the best price etc...

    I may have to get one of those.

    I'd like a black bezel too but I am not brave enough to tamper with my new 8900 (yet).

    Thanks for posting the pics.

    I just ordered a black bezel but i don't find the video on cnn particularly helpful. Is there a good website to go to for installation tips or walk throughs? Or any personal tips from the people who have done it?

    the Rogers one comes with a black battery cover.

    the CNN.CN video is pretty helpful.. the only not helpful thing is the top cover, covering the ear piece won;t come off unless you unscrew the top two screws under the batter cover.

    the front faceplate is held by 4 clips on the side. you just have to undo that.. becareful with the chip board cause it;s not bolted onto anything..

    also with this black bezel you will NOT be able to use the top unlock/lock button and the top silence button.. cause the stock faceplate has the buttons built in and some sensors to trigger the unlock/lock etc

    u just gotta go back to the old school way of unlocking * and Green call button

    Thanks for that note, really makes me reconsider this change because I like to use those buttons often.

    What!!!!! Thats a bummer. Are you sure there was no way to transfer these buttons or contacts to the new bezel? maybe they were small magnet stickers or something of the sort?

    that sucks! can't you just take the buttons from the stock faceplate and use that?

    I also use the tops buttons. It's too late regardless because the bezel is on the way. Thanks for the tips for installing it.
