    Finally. After a long time of destroying and waiting i've assembled my gold blackberry bold. I've decided not to change the LCD lens for now. I've waited too long and while I don't mind the risk again; I'd like to enjoy my phone for a while..

    Update... New pics... If this still looks like white to you.. well... You need some new eyes...

    I'm confused, where's the gold? Looks like a white bold.

    Seen it, that is why the parts suppliers have lots of color parts available. This is a big business.
    You might get suggestions for improvements and changes here

    ColorWare - BlackBerry Bold

    Actually, what is the color of your Bold, white?? beige?? multi-tone?? good try!

    If you do a forum search, the topic of the "gold" color Bold has been a good laugh.

    It's mauve!!

    Seriously though, to each his/her own but you wouldn't catch me dead with a gold BlackBerry To me that's about as attractive as faux-gold trim on cars. Somehow, for me, it has the converse effect of making the car/phone look cheaper and less classy.

    Like I said though, to each their own.

    I believe the colour is called 'Champagne' by some retailers. If you imagine the colour you'd get if you mixed gold into white... a kind of soft, slightly metallic off-white.

    Personally I quite like it, because at least to my eye, it has a luxuriant creamy kind of quality to it, much less stark than the white berries, although i love them too

    The 3rd pic down renders as gold on my computer. Everything looks nice and even, too. Nicely done.

    Why the grumpy and critical repsonses? I don't understand the need. The OP was sharing his hard work and efforts on behalf of the BB Bold we all love. Or is this a guy thing?

    PS Part of a forum moderator's responsibility is to set a tone of inclusiveness and model civil behavior - not be snarky to posters.

    What part of "I can't make out your pictures" is snarky? Correct, NONE
    It's a simple observation.

    How is asking for a possibly better picture uncivil? Correct again, IT ISN"T
    It's a simple request.

    Well said. I think someone (points in the general direction of the poster above) is either being overly sensitive, lacks a sense of witticism, sarcasm, and/or humor (or all of the above), or simply is having a bad day. I chalk it up to the weekend nearing an end.

    And the phone still doesn't look gold. And even if it did, I'm certainly entitled to my opinion that gold-plated anything looks cheap and ghetto.

    I don't mean to be rude or anything but maybe some of you are seeing a different picture?

    I have no idea how you all see white...

    THIS is a white blackberry....



    This is not...




    I will try to get a better picture taken and upload.. Could be the lighting and the poor 2mp phone I used to take it out.

    Nice work, but in the picture it looks more beige than gold. Maybe a second coating would do the trick.
