    Installed. Wasn't hard at all really, just need to be careful with the ribbons. Works with the Charging pod as well.

    Here are the pics, did it today and it really was for the most part pretty easy:

    Let us know how well the bezel fits Myself, I'm waiting for a replacement bezel like the original, as well as the soft rubber back-bezel if you can call it that. Unfortunately I've had mine hit the pavement a couple times already... arg. usually overly careful with my phones, and hate it when they have glaring scratches.

    Looks easier to replace than a 9650 bezel, especially since you don't have that top plastic piece with the tabs that break ridiculously easy... Also the mainboard looks easy to remove and put back in the bezel, the 9650 was a bit of a pita to do so...

    on previous blackberry devices we used to change because bezel was made from plastic and we want our phones to look boldier, but on 9900/30 bezel is made from metal and i will never change it, it looks so classy and rich, no need to void guarantee either.

    Has anyone considered masking and painting the factory bezel while it remains on the phone?

    Pretty slick.. I'm back and forth on whether I want to do this.

    I did a black to all white swap on my iPhone 4 so the full disassembly doesn't scare me but just the question of how the parts will hold up..

    That's what makes me nervous too. I tore my 8330 apart and changed colors so many times that it started getting really creaky. I told myself I would stick with the stock colors the phone comes with, but that black looks good!

    i like that i think black is a good choice as it doesnt go against anything else on the phone

    yeah i took apart my 9700 so many times i hated using vibrate because the whole phone sounded like it was going to explode.... i think it mainly has to do with pieces that were once glued on (mainly the piece under the keyboard) that were put back on without glue
