Default My Bold with the Black Bezel

Please Login to Remove!

Here's my bold with the OEM all black bezel. Not the easiest job but with patience and the right tools it's not that hard.

I used the old buttons although it would have been a little easier with the new buttons I would imagine. The SD card door is actually pretty easy to pull off and put back on. The harder part was the little metal charging contacts at the bottom on either side. You are definately gonna need a good pair of tweezers for those.

Very nicely done. That is a great looking phone. Do you have any creaking in the top bezel area? ... and why didn't mine ship with a black bezel?

Damn you! I was planning on being the first to do this, except that my bezel and tools won't be here until next week. Ah well... looks awesome!

I wonder if we will be able to add the trackball from the Javelin once it is released? Add that, and you can take a line from Spinal Tap... "None more black."

By the way... what theme is that?
