    My bold is currently all black, I call it Darth Vader. I have grown tired of it quickly, so as the #1 Longhorn fan in the land, I will attempt to build a University of Texas BlackBerry Bold.

    I just ordered the parts from colorwarepc, the bezel, bottom, back and camera bezel all in metallic hybrid which is the closest to burnt orange they offer. I'm keeping the red numeric keyboard and black trackball. My wallpaper matches my avatar so it should be interesting. I don't know what they do about the buttons but I have a set of glossy black buttons ready to step in. I'll post up some pics when it is all done.

    This is what I'm looking at:

    ColorWare - BlackBerry Bold

    I want to keep my T-Mobile branded bottom cover and black case-mate backpack. I'm trying to strike a nice balance between black and burnt orange. Colorware said the buttons will be chrome so I will replace them with black glossy like in the pic. Since I also use the case-mate fuel, I need the charging contacts to stay chrome.

    Hey Tech-Medic

    Are you another Texan stuck in Ohio? If so, I figure even if you're an Aggie, we're all brother Texans north of the Red and east of the Sabine. I, myself, am stuck near Cleveland until I can find a job back home in Houston.

    hmmmmmm....Chuy's.... I was at Chuy's the night in question when the Bush sisters got in trouble for drinking. I was too busy drinking to see what they were doing and the Secret Service was freaking me out.

    Well, I have at least 20 yrs on you then. We used to work the press plane when Reagan came into Dallas NAS. The head of the SS detail told us not to move fast while on the tarmac because the Marines would just love for a reason to shoot one of us long hairs. Decent guy, funny as ****, and yes, they freak you out. Those boys do not play around.

    Shouldn't you be in class? Or on 6th Street? You think this is close enough?

    The problem is it would be a moneymaker so the NCAA would want the biggest piece of that pie.
