Question Where did you get.....?

The red numbers on the dialing numbers? Did you have to install yourself and on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being most difficult) how difficult was it to do (if you did it yourself? It looks great.

Rogers branded Bolds have read dial numbers.

I purchased the Black Bezel, Keyboard with Red Buttons and Black Buttons from:

Cellular Accessories - BenQ-Siemens, BlackBerry, 3G, Accessories Store, Dopod/O2, Sony, Nokia, Acer, LG

There is a very nice thread here about this mod. Everything I know I got from the following thread:

My Bold with the Black Bezel

In terms of difficulty, just read the thread. It's rather easy if you read the thread, watch the video on the parts site to learn how to dis-assemble and assemble and buy the rights tools and parts. I have a post on page 4 of the above thread discussing my experience.

Feel free to post or pm me if you have further questions.

Looks like you spent a good change to get all those parts.

Clearly, not an inexpensive mod:

$9.99 : 1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM keyboard
$9.99 : 1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black button set
$1.99 : 1 x Blue triangular cell phone case opening tool (TOOLBCOTT)
$12.99 : 1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black bezel
$5.00 : 1 x T5 Drive
$29.95 : Seido Holster
$99.00 : 1 x Colorware Battery Cover
~$25.00 : Shipping and Handling for all this stuff

Colorware ruins the party.

Nope, the button set comes with a Black SD cover. The only buttons that remain original are:

- mute button
- charging connectors
- battery door latch

If you are going to go all black, then there is no reason to send it into colorwarem unless you want the black gloss paint that colorware does so well. If that is not important, then there is a much more econmocial solution. See this thread:

My Bold with the Black Bezel

All parts were purchased from Cellular Accessories - HTC, Samsung, BenQ-Siemens, 3G, Nokia, Panasonic, Motorola, SonyEricsson, Acer,

Also, if you just get the battery door from colorware, then they don't require you to send it in.

Yes, my battery door is nice and tight, and the paint job is incredible. Though, I have seen a colorware metallic paint job not look so good. The editor at crackberry.com has a Bold Colorware mod that I did not think look so good. However, I am 100% satisfied, my battery door looks just like the yellow they advertise on their site.

Again, if you go all black, and the gloss/sheen is not that important - then get the black battery door from Cellular Accessories - HTC, Samsung, BenQ-Siemens, 3G, Nokia, Panasonic, Motorola, SonyEricsson, Acer,

The AT&T keyboards don't have the numbers and speaker key in red. All the letters, numbers, symbols on the AT&T keyboard are white.

Has anyone found a source that sells the speaker screen at the top? I destroyed my old one trying to remove it for transfer to the new black bezel. The feedback on speakerphone is indeed horrible. Makes speaker phone unusable. :(

edit: sorry to thread-jack. I opened this thread in a separate browser tab and posted my question here by mistake instead of in the "Black Bezel" thread.
