Maybe on some phone repair centers they can do this?

I'd like to replace the chassis for a new one.

Hey !

You mean the plastic part, right? I think it might be possible, but I think it's pretty hard to do that. Maybe you can find how to do that in iFixit.

Yeah, I mean the whole plastic body (even the screen it's necessary to replace the whole plastic body for a new one).

The edges of my phone look terrible and I'd like to replace the whole outside plastic body for a new one. That way my SGS3 would look like new.

I asked a shop and it is possible, but very expensive: 130 for the front panel + display and another 40 for the back.

Guess I'll look for a new phone better.
