    My back cover came in green with an additional black one. I ordered and orange one on ebay becaues I like that one the most. But my experiment is that I ordered 3 white back covers, and I'm going to take 2 of them and spray paint them different colors, one blue and one red. Would spray paint work the best for the plastic back, or should I try something else?

    How much did they cost? I was looking for an orange one, but was surprised at the price on eBay for just a cover

    There's someone on ebay selling orange ones for around 25 dollars with shipping. Kinda pricey, but it beats having to buy an orange 830 that isn't an AT&T model.

    I think spray paint should work, but who knows until you try! Let us know how it goes.

    I'm thinking of doing the same, but painting it a bright/neonish yellow (like the yellow casing for the 635). I think that would look awesome with the sliver frame. But I'm not sure what the best way to go about painting it would be.

    Just make sure you buy the spray paint that sticks to plastic. I don't know where you live but here in the US we have a brand called Krylon that has special spray paints specifically meant for painting on plastic. Costs a little more but the paint bonds to the plastic better. I'm sure there are other brands that make something similar as well but I've only used the Krylon branded ones.

    Yup, I'm in the U.S. and am familiar with Krylon. The person in the video used a different paint though, hence not being quite sure what to go with.
