    people I've talked to have said it it quite simple. just need some patients.

    I just ordered so when I get the parts next week and do the process, I will let you know for sure.

    I couldn't imagine spending money like that from colorware. I got the bezel, black buttons, and the T5 screwdriver for $28 shipped.

    9000 - Apple, Nokia, Tools, Samsung, 3G, Acer, BlackBerry, LG, Accessories Store, Mobia

    they have a 15% discount for the holidays
    Okay. I'll probably order the parts too. Please do post your results!

    i was wondering about the black bezel parts... exactly how well does the paint hold up? will it start to chip or wear off from constant rubbing from taking it out of your pocket? i feel like the most promising solution would be to dye it....

    That's what I'm worried about. Colorware is more expensive, but will it yield a better finish, that's more resistant to chips.
    Cheaper is only better...if it's actually better.

    *sigh* I think I'm going to pass on "Blackening" my Bold (when I get it). It's just too troublesome. I'll void my warranty — and it'll be just my luck to get a wonky phone, and be out of luck. That would probably happen to me — the day after it got pimped.

    Yes, I know you can "just put back the original hardware", and everything will be wonderful, but honestly, that's too much to worry about. Some how it wouldn't work for me. I wouldn't be able to find a part, and someone mentioned about a little label on one of the screws that indicates the phone has been tampered with, if it's missing. Again, too much work, trying to do something I have no business doing.

    Now, once my warranty is up...then it's on! In the meantime, I'll drool over all-black Bolds.

    Well, I removed the other 3 bars because the bottom one snapped from excessive usage, I kinda liked the accent between the call/menu keys and the standard keypad with the chrome seeing the side buttons are still chrome.

    Not a black track ball, just a dirty oem one. LOL

    Sweet
    My luck, this would become a fiasco for me and I would screw up my bezel.

    nice red, very good color combination with the bold
    may i know where did u bought the skin?
    thank you. i agree that it looks really nice. i am a lil biased though as red is my favorite color and black/red is my favorite combo. the skin itself i got from my local Best Buy. it is the OEM skin from RIM so it can be ordered online cheaper. I was just impatient that day and bought it on a whim and didn't feel like waiting for it. the link below is to order really cheap right here from the CrackBerry store:
