My sgs took a fall and the bezel has a huge chunk missing out of it.

I've found some replacement bezels on Ebay but I wanted to know how difficult it is to replace.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

well well........ the removing part is so tricky .. think how tricky it would be to make all the things fit back again ..... impossible .. i would rather sell the phone as it is .. than trying to change the bazel and ending up in a mess where i will not even get a buyer..

You should look at 5 min and 34 sec. Then you can see the panel beneath the front panel is broken. So it is a bit more difficult then it looks

Just did it wit my i9000
It was a bit tricky on the touch buttons and then on the center button with all that glue and sticky ribbons, but all works and mostly - looks like new!
Also it was a good opportunity to clean tons of dirt...

What kind of glue do you used?
