In the short time I had my SGS2, I read this tutorial on taking the outside housing off and sanding it down to give it a matte finish. I'm sure something like that can be applied to the Skyrocket, since it's nearly the same design. Take off the housing, paint it white, and replace it. The screen wouldn't be white, but maybe it looks good like that.

Do you remember where you saw that at? I would be willing to try it.

This looks like the one. I guess it's not a tutorial after all, but if you read through it, you can find out what different people did.
