Yeah, mine is SUPPOSED to be here friday. Fat chance. I'm still waiting on the mirror screen protectors I ordered.

Oh well, it's not like I'm wanting for things to do, just having that awesome honeymoon phase with a new phone.

Please post up when you guys get them.

Good point on NFC, but I don't have any use for it now, and likely won't in the near to distant future. I could easily see myself moving on to the Note 2 without ever using it.

I did vaguely recall something about trimming tabs, but A) I worry about the back cover not fitting as well anymore and B) I am worried about the tabs needed to be trimmed not being self evident. So, if anyone gets the N7000 covers and trims them, pics sure would be appreciated.

Here's some pics of an n7000 cover on my i717....like I said, it fits perfect with some minor trimming of a couple tabs...the tabs that need to be trimmed are very evident when compared with the i717 cover

Fits just as snug, if not more, than the original i717 cover
Been using it for the past 3 weeks without issue....

Sorry for crappy iPhone pics

It's not on my phone. It's in the box of "things to find a use for later," and will eventually moved to the "trash," when I try to make it fit and end up putting a large gouge in it.

A whole ton of the tabs do not line up, some I trimmed and they worked, about half of one side needed to be removed as a whole.

Either I got a knock-off, a bad example, or my standards of secure fit are too high.

That "carbon fiber" back cover looks like its just a vinyl sticker applied to a stock battery cover. Have you tried heating it up with a blow dryer and peeling it off?

Form the picture, it looks identical to the ghost armor/bodyguardz CF vinyl wraps I've purchased in the past...most vendors use 3M DI-NOC (or a variation) material for their carbon fiber wraps - plenty of texture and holds up pretty well.

It's better than vinyl stickers, but just barely. It's not what I was hoping for. Oh well.

Thanks for the pictures. In that second one, which is the OE cover, which the carbon fiber? And, is it me, or does your camera lens look off kilter in the last picture?

If you wanted to get rid of that "carbon fiber" cover rather than trash it, I'd be happy to take it off your hands. Please PM me if interested.
