    Want to replace mine as its pretty beat up and cracked :( Does anyone know a place I can order one? I tried eBay and all the places ship from Hong Kong or UK with 1-3 week delivery time :mad: Any US shops online anyone can recommend for an OEM cover?

    Battery cover?

    Do you mean the entire white or black back piece?

    There are many places to purchase it... but there is a ton of work involved in doing so. It's not as easy as replacing it, as all of the phones components are glued or attached to the inside of it in some way. It won't be easy, my friend. I'm pretty adept at fixing screens and cracks on the 3G and 3GS but this is one project I won't undertake.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: Here's an eBay seller in the US with multiple shipping options:

    Cheap, too!

    Buy the complete rear part of the phone. It comes with everything except the logic board and screen assembly. It's about 90 bucks on eBay. It's the best solution and the easiest.

    I second this. I didn't know it existed. Perfect solution!
