    I really want to change my bezel to the black one. I think it looks much more clean and keeps it looking sharp. My question to all of those who would like to answer is.... Is it actually worth it? I mean, destroying the warranty sticker and all, I just want to know if there are or have been any problems that have left people Boldless, because that's the last place I wanna be..... I'm heading to the cnn.cn website as we speak. I'll be waiting for your replies. THANKS A BUNCH!!

    It's actually pretty easy to remove the warranty sticker and then put it back when you're done. That's what a lot of people do so they can have fun modding their phones and still keep their warranty (and sticker) intact.

    Just me I wouldnt change it until it was scratched up, I think even if the sticker is messed with if you have insurance it will still cover it.

    It's the little white dot underneath the battery cover, on top of the screw on the right side, about half way down.

    I've switched mine without any problems but I didn't do it until I gouged my silver one in the the upper right corner.

    Cnn takes 2-3 times longer and doesn't include everything

    I had this question in mind too.

    I'm wondering, how long should someone wait to mod their phone? I am tempted to mod is all black, but I'm a little skeptical.

    Cnn ships from Hong Kong and their bezels do not have the speaker mesh in tact. Order from ebay seller Pmonmon. Cheaper, faster shipping, and all mesh in tact for easier install.

    I changed the entire housing including the trackball on my Bold. It was much easier than I thought and very much worth it. I have to second Pmonmon fast shipping and cheaper than cnn.

    Glad to read this. I just ordered a black bezel and a oem bezel from him. My bold wasn't in it's holster and fell out onto the cement, scratched the heck out of one corner of the bezel! Phone still works, tough phone. That's one thing I've alway liked about BB's they are build tough!

    Yes, but not if things like this happen:

    The key is to do is with as little force as possible and don't even dare try to "tighten" it. As soon as you feel resistance, it's time to stop.

    nope, they'll know, trust me.

    I really don't see the point in blacking out the bold, to me it looks cheapened that way...I like the chrome. just my opinion though.
