    Anyone have experience with these?

    I ordered 2 of the "full assemblies" to try. Been looking at them a while but finally found them for sale/shipping from Us so decided to pull trigger.

    Wow those looks sick! All the black ones look good. No experience here but from the looks of the pics they look pretty decent. Which colors dos you order?

    I ordered the black/black and then the dark blue I believe. Went ahead and ordered a new battery, as well.

    I also threw this in buggy too... For giggles

    It was super hard to find them shipping from somewhere in USA I know that. Couldn't hardly find any on Amazon because Amazon>EBay. So we will see what happens lol. That light that takes apple logo place should be sweet. Always have thought it should light up like on my MBP.

    Probably better/best quality but MUCH more expensive than my $49 housing LOL. NEUCASE appears to do awesome work though n

    Wonders if it's 7000 series aluminum.
    Wonders how anodizing will stand up.
    Who takes phone apart and puts back together.
    Kiss your Apple warranty goodby.

    Otherwise looks nice, wish Apple would offer in more colors like iPod.

    Apple definitely needs to offer more colors/customizations. Yea, I'm gonna be the one to take it apart lol. Already Jailbroke, and have been, and have been inside it already. This isn't my first rodeo. Regardless getting full assembly already places most of the most fragile pieces already there all the ribbon cables etc.

    Yep this ended badly... Well everything works fine except somehow I accidentally broke loose where antenna interconnect cable screws to main board. Not sure it can be repaired. Was a good housing and came complete. Easy to swap, aside me somehow borking antennae interconnect hookup. I have pics of phone swapped somewhere
