Has anyone tried these or seen it in person? Your thought on the quality?
Saw that on Engadget?
I to would be interested to see how 1 actually looked fitted to an iPhone, of course you'd have to find someone with a 3G brave enough to fit a third party back cover that's liable to fall apart when you receive a text, but the pictures [on eBay particularly] always make them look quite well made, but then they would wouldn't they!? That said I wouldn't even consider taking my 3G apart to fit 1 of these, in fact I'd begrudge doing it even if I was fitting a genuine Apple back cover.
When i get time I'll be making a carbon fiber back.
I'll do both. one out of carbon fiber, one carbon fiber wrapped.
They also make them for the Original iPhone in about 6 different colors.
The use of tools to install is what makes it a problem. Please note that installing any of these packages will void your Apple Care warranty.
I think a better bet would be Colourware. Sure, it probably costs a bit more, but it'd probably a bit safer.
When I had my 1st Gen. iPhone, I wanted to change the backing because it was scratched and dinged in some places.
Some eBayers sell the kits. I wanted to buy one, but I didn't want to risk ruining my phone.
But if you are a risk taker, go on ahead and give it a shot to change the housing to whatever color you please.
But as suggested, you can try ColorWare starting at $150. It's worth it for them to do it if you are desperate to change the color.
Personally, I think it looks cheap and ugly.
+1 ^^^ Cheezy...
Sucks for that guy on ebay that paid waaay too much for the pink iPhone. Seller was claiming it was a one of a kind and the thing didnt even have a pink sim card tray... someone got hosed.
How so? Its the same as the current case but just with color. I would buy one if I wasn't an idiot about taking things apart.
Meh, they don't look very nice to me. I wouldn't do it.
I like the look of either white or black. The other colors seem a little too much
