Talking Switching Faceplate??

Please Login to Remove!

Okay...so I wanted to replace the faceplate on my 8320 with the red faceplate that is on the 8310. How difficult is it to take off and replace the faceplates?? This is the site where I am thinking about buying the new faceplate:

BlackBerry 8310 Curve OEM red faceplate w/ lens- Alcatel, Mobiado, Microsoft, HTC, BlackBerry, NEC, 3G, BenQ-Siemens, Dopod/O2, T

What do you guys think?

Anyone know of other sites that offer OEM faceplates?

Thanks in advance!

i swapped mine to the grey housing, its really good quality

and used this video to disassemble: click here

only downside is that i had to scramble to find my own titanium battery door sine no1, not even RIM accessory webstore had them at the time. My antenna cover is still the original silver rogers branded piece.

I wouldn't by it unless it comes with the bottom piece and the battery door.

Red and grey wouldn't look too great in my opinion.
