Default Black Battery cover

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know of any other place that carries the black battery cover besides cnn.cn? They seem to be out of stock and would rather not have to wait a long time for them to get more stock in.

thank you for such a quick reply. went ahead and ordered one since all black looks better then black in the front and grey in the back.

I grabbed a blue OEM cover from ebay, shipping was much cheaper that way. $1 vs the 20 some dollars at some of the overseas sites.

I'm saving my last part of the Invisible Shield for when that part arrives, like a little bit of unique color so I can pick mine out easy. The crowd I hang around with is sure to pick this device up when it comes out...

Thank you sharing the links! Just got my 8900 and was hoping to be able to swap out the ugly grey back. Can't wait until the new black one arrives!

Request people to share their review after they receive the black battery cover.

I just ordered one as well. I used the first link that raja sent. They seem to have the lowest price and quick shipping.

Ordered a black cover off of ebay. Quality is on par with OEM and as far as I can tell, it's an OEM piece. Just like the titanium version except..... it's black!

Does ANYONE know where I can find a red cover???!?!?!?!?

Where can I get a real aluminum or metal battery door for the 8900 like the storm has?

This one on the 8900 feels and looks so damn cheap.

Those looking for a black back cover, talk to someone on the forum from Canada and see if they would trade =P

Rogers branded Javelins come with the Black cover out of the box.

a metal door for the curve would be more expensive to make than the metal door on the storm (more 'curves')....that's probably why it's plastic...

i'm really impressed with the metal door on the storm. i like all the colors (graphite/titanium/silver), but i chose titanium to give it a little distinction and match with the bezel of the phone.
