    Well look here, this is where everyone gets those colored housing replacements:

    http://www.ecaseshop.com/apple_iphone-3g-2g-cases_iphone-replacement-housing_p2.html
    (not trying to advertise or whatever, but when you search google, you get this website, and every-other website sells products from this website, they sometimes even forget to take off the image watermarks!)

    And here they post a way to replace it, but I think youtube videos do better:

    I ordered a red one... and I'll post pics after i get it/install it... it seems easier to do than replacing a housing on a nintendo ds lite or a PSP.

    I purchased one on Ebay and love the color. It matches well with my metallic cover and is the same color I painted one of my scooters. Two colors in different lighting. When replacing the housing, you can also replace the battery. I installed a 1600mAh battery for longer battery life.

    I also have a quick question about a replacement houseing. When you order the replacement housing from ecasechop.com do you also get a new bezel with it?

    You can change the iPhone battery as well :O? Can I get a link for iPhone 3G S backplate and battery replacements?

    I didn't replace the bezel because they come as plastic parts. You can replace it, if you don't mind it being plastic. You can also purchase a metal bezel replacement, but all the other parts that come with the housing are plastic.

    Here is the housing: http://cgi.ebay.com/FULL-REPLACEMEN...ries?hash=item3a507b4893&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    Just out of curiosity how many mAh is the standard battery? I've been googling a bit because I'm thinking about replacing mine but don't know how much the stock is to begin with. If possible I would like to do like you did and extend my batterlife. Thanks!
