    Does anybody know where I can get legit backings that are oem and not knock offs? I purchased a blue one off amazon and it's a total fake. the buttons are flush to the case and barely work. Here's a couple of photos of what I received.

    Your best bet is probably the online Microsoft store. Unfortunately, they only have the backs with the flip cover, but it does come in orange, cyan, and black. Not sure if they're all matte (black is), but the photo suggests they are.

    I actually tried looking in my local Microsoft store and the only backings I see as of yet are for the 635 which is unfortunate.

    Yeah, I had tried my local store as well, but they didn't have anything in yet. They told me best bet was online.

    There at my local Microsoft store but it's $25. I'm definitely not paying that much for a plastic back cover

    I ordered a matte black back cover (not the flip cover) from Fonejoy in the UK last weekend. I was skeptical of the Chinese seller "OEM" covers on eBay. Fonejoy appears to be a legit retailer of true OEM parts. I post once I receive it.

    Yeah, I was having a hard time with the price too. Actually glad I had to order it online, enabled me to use some Bing rewards points to get a $10 off coupon for the online Microsoft store (free shipping is a bonus too). I only wish it had the soft-touch rubberized backing like I had on my HTC 8XT.

    The matte black shell case arrived today from Fonejoy UK in good condition. It was shipped in a padded manila envelope & the shell itself was in a labeled plastic bag, not retail packaging. It fits perfectly on the 640 and the buttons function properly and still had the clear plastic protective covers on them. I wonder about the lack of retail packaging, but it does appear to be a legit OEM piece as advertised. I don't have any experience with the eBay shells from China, so I guess it depends on what customers are willing to pay & whether the shells are knock-offs. Some have said that perhaps the "OEM" pieces are those that didn't pass the final quality checks on the OEM assembly line. The piece from Fonjoy is about $15 plus about $6 to ship to the US.
