    Instead of upgrading thinking of riding another year with my 6+ but i want to customize it. Found this place neucase through here but was wondering if anyone knew a place in NYC that did this?

    I don't know any place in NYC, but I believe Neucase will accept shipped phones.

    Do a search for them, you can get their phone number, address and hours from Yelp and they are also on Facebook.

    So are the cases featured on their Instagram page "new" cases or your own case but painted ?

    My understanding is that they are new cases that are anodized with the color/style of your choice. You keep the original case for warranty/AC+ issues (i.e., I guess you pay to have them put the original case back on so you can still be covered should you need a warranty repair/replacement).

    Here it is matte black with gold accents and I kept the front white since the home button can't be changed to black

    Did they send you your old case back with it?

    Nice combination in colors. How satisfied are you with their product and do you notice any difference on fitments with their case ?
    Also, How long did it take you to get a hold of anyone there ? I must have sent 3 emails within 2 days, and no response as of yet.
    I am wondering about color selections and cost(s) ....

    yes

    i have a 6+ and installation with express shipping back was 220. I suggest to text message or even call them. I got through to them with texting rather easily

    im satisfied with the product enough to not even upgrade to the 6s+

    $220 for a paint job? Yikes. Does look nice though.

    Just to add, it's not paint. They actually annodize the case in the color you want. If you were to scratch it, it wouldn't be say Space Gray beneath. It would be the color that they annodized it with.

    That's why it's expensive.
