    hey guys , i got this glass on ebay for $4.50 ea so i gave it a shot for some possible extra protection and style ;) .

    i didn't want to mess anything up from the inside so i left the phone the way it is , i sprayed adhesive spray only on my bodyguardz skin ,and apply the glass on it immediately , i had to line it up a few times but luckily the glue was still moist and wet . after an hour , its sticks on the phone real good , + i'll be getting my bumper case soon and that'll help support the adhesive too.

    overall it looks really nice for $4.50 , don't feel much bulkiness ,the flash washed out the pics a bit but not too bad.

    so i took some pics especially for you guys , so enjoy and be innovative :D

    p.s parton my fingers need to do my nails lol

    Lol you blind? Looks great man , it was intended to be an add on like a skin guard , a $4.00 accessory man! Why would I want to ruin my original black glass by removing it from the battery cover ? You have $100.00 + for me to buy an extra complete back plate? This is a good alternative



    The glass is crystal clear it's like having a a uv filter lens on your d slr camera no problems here pics are perfect , but it does effect the flash a bit just like all those cases that have flash issues


    Ok I will but from The looks of it seems hard to see any scratches on the white glass , I have an iPhone 3G 16gb white and it's hard to see cosmetic flaws on it unless I look really close with a flashlight

    no, a good alternative would be a gelaskin or zagg skin that is white withe the appropriate apple markings. this is a half-arsed attempt at something...I don't have 100bux for you to buy one, I bought my own with my money I work for.

    in the end its your phone, do with it what you like

    Man give the guy a break! Seriously it doesn't look too bad, obviously not as sexy as a white backplate, but for less than 5 dollars you can't go wrong! :D

    I don't think a bumper (or any case) will fit with that on.

    Not worth the effort, even for $4.50 if your going to get flash wash out.

    Um no , not good alternatives , none of those resembles the white i4 back glass , failed . Lol a decent attempt to save me big bucks ,and at least give others some idea of there own fun projects . No $100 ? Cheap man!

    But ok at the end of the day it's my phone I will take note of your initial comment ,but take mine too

    Why buy an iluv " apple bumper wannabe" bumper style cheap flimsy case ? Do it right man buy the real stuff:rolleyes:

    Hhmm worth the effort for me and I had fun , um yeah the flash issues is a bit of a problem , but do you know how many people out there that have cases with flash issues and ultimately don't really care about that issue and kept the case? Alot! 4.50 glass with flash issue vs 30.00 case with flash issue :D

    Ok then I will let you know when I get my bumper , but I did try on a bumper before and I thing it does have some room to snug the thin glass in might be tight but I'm confident:D

    Also good luck trying to find a case that will fit. If it works for you, it works for.
