    pink...you know the sad part about the defender...it doesn't fit in my mk case

    i had to reorganize my wallet today...its the only part i dislike about it...
    a www pooo....now that stinks!!

    I've got inside scoop that Santa is bringing me the beige python wristlet MK one where the phone actually goes into it and snaps shut, not the wallet version you have. I'll use it for when I go out and don't want to carry my handbag but need a credit/debit card and a dl license.

    I think they only allow two occurrences, so two replacements at $49 each.

    yes, LVMH, over the course of your 2yr insurance policy with them, Apple will only allow 2 'occurrences' keeping in mind they will not cover lost/stolen iPhones.

    Turns out that I did a high jump kick today. My phone popped out of my pocket on to concrete. Shattered the back panel. A chunk of glass is missing from the front.

    Thanks to the Pimping my 4S thread, I was able to find a black back glass assembly and pentalobe screwdriver (for the 4S's special screws) at United iPhone Repair which arrived today. Super fast shipping! The back glass plate was only $19.20 and the screwdriver was around $10. The backs come in different colors! They sell lots of goodies for the iPhone as well as different color front panels as well as replacement batteries.

    My husband and I changed the back glass ourselves in a couple of minutes (most of that time was spent looking for a dropped screw!) and the whole deal was under $35 - much better than having to get a replacement phone from Apple!

    Here's the link

    Thx for this link LV, I don't know if I have the guts to do something like this even as simple as it seems, but I'm gonna check out the website anyway.

    It was surprisingly easy to do, I promise! So easy that it annoys me that "independent contractors" are charging $50-$150 to change the back piece! And remember, we had to remove a shattered back so a simple swap is a breeze! They have tutorials on the site and if you google "how to change back glass on the iPhone 4s" or something like that a bunch of videos will pop up from YouTube. Just be careful not to drop the microscopic screws! Oy!

    Master of Puppets also told me that its easy to do--literally a maybe 5 minute task. BUT i just really don't know if i'm brave enough to try it out, lol.

    I think back to how many times i changed out the trackball in my 8330 to change colors of it, and i was told its even easier to swap the back out than doing that. SO, idk, MAYBE one of these days i'll get brave and attempt. But for now, i'll leave well enough alone

    The Apple shop thats here by us charges $30 to swap out the back(if i rem correctly) and i think the front is $150 like you said.

    If I ever get my metal back in, I'll take a video of my changing it out, and upload it. I've never done it before, but after seeing all the videos, it looks like taking a battery cover off, but having 2 screws holding it on. If you can do the trackball switch you can do this.

    If there are a bunch of them showing how to do it, let me know, because there's no reason to add to the many vids for a simple task like that.

    Swapping out the back piece is definitely WAAYYY easier than changing a trackball! And yes, it is just like removing a battery cover but with two teeny screws.

    Our Apple store here in L.A. didn't give us the option to swap out the back! Would only replace the phone which hubby didn't want to do for just the back piece. Otherwise we would have brought it in immediately especially since it would be the same cost as doing it yourself and no worrying about losing the screws!

    And I promise, this is a million times easier than swapping out the trackball on a BB!

    lol Exactly. If my phone is not in a case holding it feels so odd. Btw I got that purple/turquoise defender yesterday in the mail finally, I love it! I have to type a little harder because I also have an actual screen protector on the phone from before when I didn't have a defender yet. Thinking about losing it though.
