The seller also sells titanium ones. Coming to this thread, where most people buy white housings from this specific seller i was interested in buying from, what was i supposed to ask?

"Does the titanium housing come with water damage stickers?"

I'd have gotten an even larger list of complaints for my question then.

IF the white housing comes with water damage stickers, chances are the titanium one I'm interested in also comes with water damage stickers. I sent a question to the seller on ebay but he probably doesn't speak English so I have gotten no reply. So I thought i'd ask here. Simple as. Anyway, let's put an end to this.

If someone could verify if the white housings come with water damage shields, I'd appreciate the confirmation.

You could always use Google Translate:

Does the galaxy nexus shell have a water damage sticker?

Hat die Galaxie Nexus Schale haben einen Wasserschaden Plakette?

I have used it in the past for orders with China. The translation is rough, but they should get the general idea of what you are asking.

Thanks,

I have a cellphone repair kit but you should be able to get the right screwdriver at Canadian tire or Rona.

Guys, something important.

So I called the Samsung Service Center i usually take my phone to in order to ask for the prices for the white housing. The pricing is as follows:

16.48 Euros for the back cover
6.73 Euros for the battery cover
Total 23.21 Euros (=30.5 USD).

You can buy these yourself, or pay a 27 Euro fee for it to be installed.

I just wanted to let you know about this, seeing as you guys pay 90+USD on rb-sale-s for the cover. Why not buy it from the service center itself? It's a third of the price. Please call your service center before buying from online stores, turns out it's cheaper for me.

you cannot buy them from samsung directly, first you must have a white nexus and it must be a official country of released, then they will just charge you the stated price inclusive of labour charge (within warranty period), if it's a imported unit or out of warranty, then the unit must also be a white unit (official white unit), then there is a inspection charge/labour charge on top, along with the price of the spare parts/accessories.

Some countries many even reject imported units for no reasons, just because the unit is not registered in their country.

In all cases samsung will keep the old case, but not the battery cover as the battery cover is considered as a accessory and not a spare part, if your unit was a titanium unit no samsung in the world will put a white shell on, as this is changing the phones specification, and samsung must do the installation, you cannot just get the shell and DIY. But there are loop hole that I won't mention here.

Well I was on the phone just now and I ordered mine 15 minutes ago.

I'll let you know how it goes when they call me to go pick it up.

if it does work out good luck, as many large firms wont do this due to company policies and there are no exceptions.

How long did you have to wait to receive your housing?
