    I like the all black too, but I wanted some contrast with the carbon fiber. Might buy another CF kit and try it on the stock battery door.

    It's red. Just looks orange because of the lighting. :)

    Very cool man, good idea.

    Were the pieces made for the phone or did you cut them to fit?

    I was going to order a 4"x4" pieced of the CF and cut it myself, but I found a pre-cut set on Ebay.

    Based on the pics in the ebay ad, it definitely looks better with the red back like you have. Nice work.

    When I saw the photo of your case I let out and audible "ohh!" That is one sick looking phone!

    Where did you get the red battery cover?

    FYI - If you are going to cut carbon fiber take precautions. It's not human-friendly stuff!

    does this lower the overall weight of your phone and allow for a faster pocket-ear time?

    It's also vinyl, not actually carbon fiber ;)

    I'm considering taking it off, since I keep bruising my ear. It's so light that sometimes I noticed it gently lifting off my desk and floating into the air. I want my money back!

    I checked at my local Verizon store and they wanted $25 for the red battery cover. I said hell no and walked out. All it is is the cheap plastic back cover molded in red color. Not worth $25

    I was fortunate enough to have walked into a verizon store that was seemingly giving 25% discounts to anyone buying any accessory. I went ahead and bought the red and the white. Came out to $40

    The only concern I have about keeping my phone "naked" with these new covers is potentially scratching or breaking the camera lens. I suppose i'll have to get into a habit of turning it face-down every time I leave it on any hard surface.
