Picked the new backplate up as well a set of "iPhone 4 opening tools" (which included a very precise guitar pick...). Anyways for $7 CAD shipped to BC, I'm not complaining. Got them both off eBay and they amazingly only took 7 days to get here! On to the actual backplate, it feels...unlike Apple's aluminum items, i'll tell you that much. Other than that, quality is what you would expect for $4. At first I thought I was going to get metal slivers but it's actually quite smooth to touch. The bevel along the edge is the best part. Feels miles better in the hand, especially after extended use. Ask away if you have any questions.
