its hard-ish to replace, you have to remove almost everything from the device.
it also voids your warranty to do so.
and yes you can get different colours.
cnn.cn, ebay, possibly horizon wireless too

cnn.cn only has a black bezel, you will probably have to go to ebay if you want more colors.

is actually pretty easy, after watching an youtube video, it only takes about 20 min Max.
Warranty wise just the little sticker on the screw, try to remove it with a tooth pick and put it back on once you done~~!! wa la~~

I have completely blacked out my Bold with a red & black Rogers keyboard, black bezel, black rollerball and black buttons. It's not hard. Just take your time and it will only take about 20 minutes. I order parts from cnn.cn. Just be sure to order the funky screw driver.

unlocking doesnt void your warranty.....
debranding does.

so, you still have a warranty for the device.
