I'm curious: Does the white body get dirty after several days of use?

Yah it does, I have mr clean wipes which take all the dirt off. Only downfall is I have to do it every 1-2 days...
The look is worth it though.

Any thoughs guys on where id find either colored transparent sheets or colored transparent tape?? Im in ottawa and tried the obvious stores like Staples and zellers,Walmart...etc...Or is there another alternative?

There's a product called Con-Tact Paper made by Kittrich Corp. you can find it in most hardware stores in The States. Though I cant speak to the Ottawa area it's readily available around the net in a host of colors and textures.

I found an alternative. I just bought red acetate(overhead projector paper) and I made my keypad red now. After doing it i realised my white bold looks identical to the OP's,except for the decal on the back cover....

I stripped mine down the other day. No problems, no cracking. Did have a little difficulty getting it back together though. :D

when switching out the bezel , you don't do anything to the screen

it's very easy. you just take the screws out.. the bezel and mid-plate both pull apart easily, even though it feels like you're doing something bad, and it goes back together relatively easy. i remember asking myself "why am i doing this to a perfectly good (and new) phone ??"

just get the right tq, and take a few screws out, really

Yup i can vouch for that. I ended up cracking my screen by not being careful. The cover on the LCD screen is super glued and you'll probably need to use a blow dryer to melt/soften the adhesive.

Make sure to have a spare phone ready because you never know.
