    Just to say guys, as a few posts here seem to indicate, the cheaper 20 cases don't seem to be particularly good quality. I ordered a white one which has cracked in the corners- better off paying a little more for a genuine one!

    Ok everyone seems to say that the spare parts sold by 5_bestcell are note genuine and advise to pay a little bit more for genuine one but i can't find cyan case anywhere but on his store.
    Does anyone has found a seller that sold genuine matte cyan cases ?

    just tray to ask to your reseller if they can order this product code: 6401525 and 02503Z7 (this are the genuine one)

    I just got my yellow housing. First at the bottom left there's a tiny black discoloration, secondly the yellow seems to be peeling off of the camera sticker and thirdly near the buttons in the middle of the polycarbonate curve you can see the connection between the curved part and the flat part on the bottom, it's an ugly grayish line. And the camera sticker itself is loose and wobbles inside and out if pressed, where if not touched it's a little bit out of place, pushing out of the bottom surface.

    What a complete waste of time and money. YES I can send in for a replacement but screw that, not going to wait ANOTHER 40 days to get mine plus the effort to get it from the post office.

    Maybe I'll just learn to like my white Lumia and accept that I practically burned my money away.

    AGAIN, DO NOT BUY. If yours hasn't shipped refund it before you regret your decision like me. It's really not worth opening up your phone and potentially voiding your warranty or worse damaging some parts only to put on an imperfect, poorly made housing.

    On the plus side I got some nice tools to work with in the future, and a free screen cover.

    EDIT: The seller has issued me a full refund inc. shipping without asking many questions, I only took pictures of the case and sent it to him via Ebay. Fantastic stuff really, it's rare to see people being just so, unproblematic.

    If you still want the colour change I would highly recommend the polycarbonate housings sold by 2buyA - after I also got one of the cheap ones which broke within a week (garbage) I thought I'd give theirs a go. Ordered yesterday, arrived today and you can instantly see it's the official housing; easily removed plastic around the whole body and small red tabs covering the adhesive areas of the casing, the antennaes are completely different- they seem to go further down the case, heat strip is included, the camera cover on the back is level, buttons actually stick out of the case properly. The best part is that where the body of the device barely squeezed in the cheaper case, it slots perfectly in to the official housing.

    If anybody is reading this and thinking of doing it - it's easy, but just avoid the cheap chinese housing and spend a little more for one from a UK seller. I would say though that the headphone socket and wireless coil I got from one of the chinese shops seem to be ok - no problems so far if they are knock-offs anyway, and they look exactly like the OEM ones (unlike the housing).

    Not sure what you mean? All I needed to switch were the wireless coil, headphone jack and charging connector at the base of the phone.

    I must be one lucky guy then. My case from 5_cell still holding up great. Maybe he is running out of good quality cases from the discarded batch he received. Anyway, If I purchased again, I probably will use another source as well after reading all the comments above.

    So after almost a month I received my black replacement cover (dropped my Phone, and the original case had some big scuffs). Yesterday I sat down, and tried the conversion.

    The first thing I noticed, was that the ceramic plate, with the camera cutout didn't have a Nokia logo on in (instead it says "Carl Zeiss") and it is not flush with the rest of the case. Then I continued with the conversion, and everything went fine, until I tried to put back the Phone in the case. It wouldn't click in place, because of the buttons on the right side.
    It will leave a gap there...so already contacted the seller. He wants me to send him some photo's. Hopefully he will give me a refund. Will buy an original case next...(after I get refunded)

    Will not buy from 5_bestcell again...

    I think only certain regions have the Nokia logo on the camera plate just as an FYI that is not indicative any any foul play. I could be wrong but I am pretty sure on that.

    Finally got my red housing installed. I ordered it from 2buya. So far it is great. Paid a bit more, bit I'm confident it is OEM. Haven't noticed any flaws, plus it had the black heat strip in the casing which others don't have.

    So, I converted my stormtrooper to a C3P0.
    When i pulled up the wireless coil, i sorta ruined the sticky bit underneath.
    I thought i would buy a new wireless coil to put into the white body so i could switch back and forth without having to worry about the coil.

    I have received my coil from the seller, but it doesn't have the clear plastic double sided sticky thing.
    Is this something I can buy? Do I have to order it separate orm the web site, or should it have come with the part?

    Thanks for any advice!

    You could use glue, double-sided sticky tape, anything really. You might want to use something which can easily be removed if you want to change the housing again at some point.

    I wouldnt even worry about sticking the charging coil down. maybe a small bit of tape at the edge holding it to the shell but it's pretty solid when it's all put back together and there's a small point to line it up with

    As for original housing vs knock off.

    Frankly I'd lean to %95 of the ones on ebay as knock off. The OEM ones retail for a good $60. Anything substantially less ( lots of $30 ones about ) are likely fake. The glossy cyan being a very key indicator. Any seller with gloss cyan, you can bet the rest of their stock is knock off to. Suprised people don't want to face facts that they bought a knock off. Does it matter ? no, not really. If it fits and has no side effects then be happy with it. but it is what it is

    This^ I'm thinking of buying a yellow cover from 5bestcell. Can anyone speak to the quality? I thought about the 2buya site too...but I looks like one of those sites that keeps your money and never sends the product....I'm in the US...suggestions?

    I have ordered several items from 2buya. A few cases as well as my red Lumia housing. I'm in Canada and I received my housing in a couple weeks. So far it is great. You have to pay a bit more though and you have to get the SIM tray separate as well. Really happy with it though.

    No problem with 2buya and have bought a few items in the UK from them (2 CC1043, car holder and white housing) - all good. Shipping is usually pretty quick too, at least in the UK.

    In terms of 5bestcell against 2buya - with the former it was a struggle to get the phone in to the casing and mine cracked pretty shortly afterward. With the genuine case from 2buya it slotted straight in and no issues whatsoever. It's a bit more but in the long run worth it for me.

    I got mine from 5bestcell. See my posts above. My yellow case is still perfect after a couple months. But, reading all the other negative experiences with that buyer, I feel like I am in the minority.
    $95 including shipping is a little steep for me. Found this interesting link where somebody sells used original Nokia cases at Amazon

    edit: aeeh, it's just one used case...

    For anyone questioning the quality of these housings, whilst they look the part they are very brittle. My phone was dropped onto a solid tiled floor from about 3 foot. I would expect the screen the take a smashing ( which it didnt, survived a treat ) but not a chunk to fly off the housing.
