Remember back in the day when we used to exchange covers on our phone every time we felt like it? I remember when I had my Nokia 3310 and my 3650, I used to buy a new cover every month just cause it got boring. Now with the new phones, its a pain in the ass, and you void your warranty, and you can never find any housings with different colours. Bring back exchangeable phone covers please!!!!

I guess the snap on cases are the new wave of things.

I had an old Nokia with a clear case. The phone had enough LED's in it that I could and did use it as a flashlight at times. I think I still have that phone somewhere.

Ah yes, the epilepsy inducing phones. Funny that they still had great battery life.

I was just online shopping for a replacement battery door *just* so I could get it in a different color.

I might just paint it like people custom paint their Xbox controllers.

i think it is because manufacturers nowadays dislike the ability to self-fix phones and see the secrets. Many are also chasing the iPhone formula. Another reason is that non-removable could make the phone thinner. This is basically the selling points of many phones.
