Replacement bezels?

    Sadly I just dropped my Samsung Vibrant. However, the glass didnt shatter and everything else works fine. The only thing is that the silver bezel is all scratched up :( . I am wondering if anyone knows a website where I can purchase a replacement bezel. I also tried contacting Samsung about ordering a bezel from them and currently they have no parts at all for the Vibrant. I also searched around the web and noticed that you can get a whole replacement screen for the phone for just $65, but still not luck on the damn bezel.

    Or you could hide the damaged bezel behind the Tmobile gel case:

    This is the second time I've heard about a bezel damaged in a dropped phone. One of big reasons I chose the Tmoble gel case, it protects the bezel.

    Or there is the Body Glove Chrome/Flex Snap On Case if you like the shiny bezel look:

    The clip is removable on the Body Glove case. That SGP slider is definitely slick.

    Here's a gel case in a cool color that would probably work:

    Model : Silicone Case for Samsung Galaxy S
    Manufacturer : Rearth - Ringke
    Condition : Brand new
    Color : Kiwi
    The Ringke cover is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S ! A super-slim design outfitted with a charming new look. The cover is designed to perfectly match the Galaxy S. Rearth's team focused on every detail to insure perfect compatibility of the design and function for the Galaxy S, to guarantee a snug fit without inhibiting the use of each button's function.
    Traditional covers use plastic or silicone covers, while Ringke uses surface etching and high polymer coating technology on top of the silicone material that makes the case soft to the touch, but resistant to scratches and scrapes.

    This is a old thread but maybe someone will benifit from this reply. I've found a supplier for the chrome bezels. You have to order a min. order of (2), and they are 16.99 ea, plus shipping. comes out to a little under 50.00. I ordered two, not knowing the extent of replacing this simple piece on the phone. You have to completely tear down the phone, including heating up the screens adheasive to remove it from the bezel.




    If someone orders these and tries to replace the bezel, please let me know on a scale from 1-10 (one being easy and ten being a pain in the arse) how hard it was for you, and how much knowledge and experience you already have with cell phones. Ive only taken apart one phone in my life (moto slvr) to replace the whole housing, and one button didnt work after that. So I am a little hesitant on taking this one apart due to the nature of the teardown...

    I forgot to mention, since the chrome bezels get scratched so easily, I got a can of Plasti Dip Spray (local hardware stores carry them). Its a rubberized spray, color is black although I've heard of them having different colors. Now all I need is some confidence to put this bad boy on!
