    I've only taken apart an iPhone 4s and a couple tablets so it's not like I'm that great or experienced but I'll definitely post something. It's the least I can do for all the advice and knowledge I've got from this site and the community.

    Thanks for posting that tear down. I'd been wondering about swapping the back and bezel. Looking at the teardown and the available parts it looks like the bezel isn't replaceable without the screen. :( Now I'm wishing I'd have gotten the white(for the silver bezel) and just swapped the back.

    I want the orange back! I think that would look great with the silver band from the white icon!

    I was hoping it would all get here before my vacation but it doesn't look like it will.

    Exactly the brighter the better! i am tired of Verizon's black and white only phones. "Too bright" for me would be HTC 8X yellow highlighter color. I would love to have a phone with color without having to put a case on it. Although looking at the Lumia 930 review..that green....pretty tempting! I don't see why it could not be done.

    Interesting thread... I am also waiting to see the final result.
    If i could have gotten the 930 to work on Verizon I would have purchased it... But that might work instead!

    Pretty much anything to get rid of the million Verizon Logos and have a nice back with only the Nokia logo right in the middle.

    Can this dude get back from vacation already? Selfish *******. Only kidding! My white back is pretty scratched and dirty so this would be absolutely awesome to look forward to.

    I have an orange 930. Please keep in mind that this is an "acid" version of orange, not like the previous Lumias with their elegant colors. Official Nokia pictures look somewhat toned down. I had the Cyan and Yellow Lumias before, but this time I'd go with the white 930, if I was to choose again. Think this level of orangeness: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_V2tf7RC9bx...0/DSCF5496.JPG

    Well good news and bad looks like they shipped both together so now I have everything. But the bad news is that they charged me $10.30 for each item so I got screwed out of 10 bucks because they used the same package and still charged me for shipping both

    Do you have a suction cup thing to get the back plate off?

    Luckily or unluckily my 10 month old at the time threw my icon onto the metal leg of her swing and slightly bent the corner of my phone making it easy to pry the back off.
