    Hi all,

    I've been looking for a new replacement back cover for my iphone4. Specifically, I am interested in the one I saw from gizmodo a long time ago, it looks to be of high quality:

    Essentially I am looking for a brushed flat aluminum back replacement cover, not the rounded version.

    I've seen a lot that look similar to the one from gizmodo from and, and also from various sellers on ebay. Are they all the same? Do they come from the same source? I need some help, where should I buy it from? Is there a general consensus of which seller sells the best quality one? I've also heard some of these back cover replacements interfere with reception and/or the camera lense/flash.

    do a quick search here, some people have them.

    I bought one from ebay, I believe it was somewhere around 10-15 bucks. I had the flat one. No issues with the camera at the beginning, but I can't use flash now because it started to come apart.

    It has an aluminum plate that was glued to the plastic frame, so there.

    I read somewhere here that now they sell them at 5 bucks a piece with free shipping.

    can you link me? i really cannot find any threads on this.

    i'm looking for some details/high res shots of the silver aluminum back covers from both sites, that would help. and if the apple logos are just stickers or engraved on?
