    Good call. I've wanting a different housing for some time, but I thought I'd wait till I had the phone awhile. Plus you can wait to see how my transaction goes. Also there are many places to get free themes. There is a forum on this site and a good site called themes4bb.com.

    just to clarify, all I would need is the faceplate set, and seperate trackball to install? I can't find the atomic trackball, little help! Thanks guys.

    I'm pretty sure you can find the atomic trackball at cnn.cn.

    It's under the 8900 section because that's what it originally comes on but it will fit the other models I believe. (correct me guys if that is wrong)

    The True Supplier trackball is different. I've just ordered it, but I don't know how it feels cause haven't got it in yet. It's also cheaper and comes with screwdriver and trackball ring remover.

    I noticed it was cheaper, I may go that route, come with tools? That's a plus.

    I just bought the white housing. 54 bucks with shipping. Comes with white housing (front, back and bottom piece), side rails, black trackball, and black keypad with two screwdrivers and the opening tool. I thought that was a pretty good deal.

    Yeah...I was the same way...

    But took my time and everything went fine...

    I'm sure it would with you also...

    I've never done the swap, but I know how to use a screwdriver and I'm not a moron so I think it shouldn't be that hard. Just going to watch a few videos on youtube and go from there.
