A bit of googling hasn't revealed an answer for me, so I'm hoping someone here can help. I would like to replace the front panel assembly and the battery cover of my s3. I'd like to know if these panels are basically the same across all versions of the s3, because the color I want doesn't exist in the version I have. Thanks for any help!

And I would prefer to change the panels out, not just get a case or gelaskin type of deal.

I didn't try that. I don't have a heat gun or really want to mess with pulling the lcd and such off, a whole front panel would be more expensive, but easier.

I was also thinking of changing the "casing" of my S3. A few of my colleagues have replaced their cracked screen glass successfully and have the needed tools (heat gun, IR sensor etc) and experience to now do it in their sleep. All from buying parts from eBay. A screen should cost now more than R250 include no shipping. I will check on the bezel and back cover and post back here.
