I emailed OnePlus, their answer what that even though they said you'd be able to buy replacement Sandstone Black backs starting Oct. 1st, this isn't happening and there's no ETA for when they'll be available to purchase.
I also looked through eBay and AliExpress for these, seems like all the sellers are selling backs without side buttons and with no NFC support.
Me and my gf both have been waiting for a replacement sandstone-black back cover since July(!!!!!) as they were both damaged due to their sub-par quality flip covers. I would not hold my breath for them to make them available soon....
DISCLAIMER: Please be aware that I haven't used them myself and cannot comment on the quality of their services
Also no Sandstone material, So i found one on eBay it seems legit. But there are no buttons, when i contacted the buyer he stated i can use the ones now on the original cover.
If this is true i reveille it's a good option: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/181559987186?...84.m1438.l2649
