    Thanks guys.

    Quick tip when you get to last stage of removing keypad.. don't. I just popped out screen and keypad still attached. Might save u some time

    Wow!!!! That looks amazing!!!

    Is it a difficult change and where would I be able to buy a silver metal one?

    I was a 9900 user and this probably #1 what I missed about the physical attributes of the phone. Glad they brought it back for the Classic but on my Q10 this looks legit.

    Thx

    Got mine off ebay. Just searched for q10 housing. Whole change took about 20 mins. Make sure you have torx screwdrivers (can also get off ebay cheaply).

    Youtube housing changes. It's simple.

    No noticeable change in solid feel of device overall? I'm afraid I'd have some loose keys or some other squeak after a change.

    Nope. All feels the same. Just make sure you don't tighten the screws too much. They easily snap. Bezel is metal too so feel is the same

    Very Nice OP!

    I would venture that it was the hundreds of Q10 owners doing this that brought back the silver bezel on the Classic!

    Have one on the way for my Q10 as well. Bring back that nostalgia of the 9900. Going to install it with a new keyboard.

    Just go on eBay and search for gold Q10 in the cell phone parts and accessories category. The one I bought was like $52.99.
