    Question 6230: Is it possible to swap silver casing to graphite color?

    i'm looking to buy a 6230 really soon...i love the graphite version but it wun be available in singapore...can someone tell me if its possible to change from sliver to graphite??in details pls...and does anyone have a pic of an xpress-on?just the cover,not the whole phone...

    Why not you try ebay instead or go over to Malaysia and look for one. I am sure that Nokia authorised shops will sell you one.

    The aftermarket covers I bought from China sucked. I ended up dropping big $$ to get some OEM from the UK and they are flawless. I recommend going with the OEM.

    I reccomend you stay away from ebay - most covers are cheaply made and a waste of money .Stick with OEM faceplates.

    that's the point, it's OEM. not aftermarket

    I dont know how true this is but a rep told me that if you put aftermarket faceplates on the 6230's it will void the warranty, i recently purchased a 6230b and was asking a local rep and that is what he told me, anyone know anything different??

    Thanks

    I bought one of their 6230 graphite covers and it sucks bigtime.

    the Nokia emblem was put on crooked and the front cover wont clip on all the way so basically the entire cover is worthless. just like the seller is because he or she wont return any of my emails about this problem.

    I cant even leave them bad feedback because you never know how they will react to that and they'll probably make up some sort of lie and give me negative feedback as well.

    oh well, live and learn....

    Dude, that's Singaporean English for you! I grew up there and you get used to the way people say and write things. It's like a secret code. Interestingly, I just installed MSN Messenger 7.0 and one of the language options was English (Singapore) I guess the spell check won't correct phrases like "dun wan" as in "I dun wan to go to the party!"
