    I know it was possible for some other Lumia (don't remember which one) but if its possible for the 920 I'll great the black one now instead of waiting for the yellow one which my carrier might not even ever get.

    Unfortunately only the 820 has removable shells.

    The "shell" is the entire phone, so no. Not unless you want to remove every last component carefully and then reassemble them inside a new shell.

    There was another phone which had the shell screwed on and while it officially didn't support other shells people managed to do it. That's what i was asking about.

    You can buy replacement shells for the 800 so perhaps you will be able to get them for the 920 in time

    I'm not aware of any phone that can't be opened up and swapped around. How do you think the service centers fix them? magic gnomes phone gnomes that enter through the USB port?

    yes, even the lumia 900 can be opened (quite easily if you visit youtube), and so can the 800

    Sure, it's definitely possible.

    Practical though? Absolutely not.

    Well I agree that its not practical but I will only be doing it once so it might be worth the effort.

    as I said before in the other thread, you CAN replace the shell but you have to be extremely careful. You can't just replace it sitting in your car, you need a clean table and tools, because as above video suggests, you will need to take apart the entire phone. It's not hard if you know what you are doing. If you've never replaced a screen on any of your phones, don't even try to replace a shell.

    By replacing the shell, you will automatically void your warranty.

    Sigh I'll have to wait for the yellow one then which I don't even know if it will be getting released by my carrier at all.
