    I've bought 2 black bezels so far, and neither was good enough to permanently replace the original metallic bezel which for some reason I think is ugly.

    The first one I bought from some place in China that I saw linked to somewhere here, and after waiting about 17 days for it to arrive it turned out to be a total piece of crap with cheapie side buttons. Plus, I learned with that one that I don't like the matte black.

    The second one I bought from an Ebay site. Arrived in 2 days, looked beautiful. Nice glossy black, except for the back cover latch and charge pins - perfect!

    Except that the latch didn't hold. And the phone didn't snap into my car charger, like it should, either.

    Does anyone know of a glossy black bezel, with all buttons, that actually works?

    Their black bezel does not include side buttons, unfortunately. I don't want to mess with buttons.

    Whatever you do stay away from true supplier. They are horrible. cnn.cn is top knotch, but like you said, you don't want to change the buttons.

    Has anyone tried just removing the silver paint from the original bezel?

    The reason I ask is that mine is coming off on its own and if possible it could be a solution?

    The one from CNN is a flat black....not glossy.
    The thing I didnt like about CNN is that S/H is just as much as the parts. I think I spent $30 on shipping.

    Their black bezel's are really high quality and comes in a glossy texture, the buttons come intacted with it also.

    Wow, that's some selection of colors they've got there. Great site for chicks, lol.

    Thanks for the tip. I ordered a metallic black bezel, and am crossing my fingers on this one...

    Are you kidding I couldn't even figure out how to get the trackball off of the motherboard. And yes, I watched a video about it... No worries there I was able to place the black one into the keypad just to see what it looked like and decided I like the white trackball better anyway.

    No little kids here to help me out...

    Take a look around or search, a couple people here have sanded the chrome off their original bezels.
