excellent, $40 for a bezel that will get scratched just as easily AND void your warranty. Sounds like a deal to me.

Hmm... I wonder if you can swap one of the matt black Touch bezels with the chrome. That would be tiggidy tight.

no, they are completely different shapes... not to mention the holes.

good point...they should've made one in black...
i was thinking that but, you would have to change it every time you wanted to get it serviced..

seems like more of an annoyance..

and it wouldn't even matter since i use the Agent18(black) :D

LOL. Anyone seen the black back? Looks frikkin sweet.

I wonder how they got black OEM backs when Apple (The Original Equipment Manufacturer) doesn't sell an iPhone with a black back. Hahah!

But it is sexy. Although, a warranty is sexier.

i seriously doubt Apple would be willing to change the looks of the iPhone. Not a question of warranty so much as a consistent image. Same reason why they try locking down the springboard so much.

You spend 4 hours going over the tutorials for iPhone disassembly, start taking yours apart, break something crucial, and buy a new phone.

I would seriously consider - no, I'd buy an anodized bezel. I'd probably hate it once I installed it, but I think a red one would look nice...

An anodized aluminum bezel would be great, and much more durable than the chrome. Hopefully someone makes a replacement because I need one. My chrome bezel is junk.

Has anyone on here tried to replace the bezel? I ordered one from ifixit.com and they said it was difficult, boy were they serious. It took me 20 minutes to get the antenna cover off. I couldn't get the back cover off before the iPod opening tools they sent wore out. They're plastic, woohoo! Anyway, I gave up and put the antenna cover back on. I bent that up nicely, so it looks like I'll be ordering one of those from them now when they get them back in stock. Anyway, doing the replacement isn't easy!
