I think the Sidekick 4G is great, but I do wish the entire casing was black. Was there any workaround for that? Perhaps a black decal that could cover the magenta back of the screen?

I thought of a Sharpie, but then thought that the coloring would be uneven. I don't want to paint it because that could flake.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks,
Jake

I thought the same thing. The black one is all black except for the silver behind the screen, but the Pearl Magenta version you and I have...well, maybe you could send it to the folks at Colorware? Just a thought.

Interesting idea; I had never heard of them. Looks expensive, though. Hard to believe that some clever person hasn't come up with some sort of decal to sell on ebay

Good call, Don't use sharpie, it didn't work, trust me. There are dozens of little nooks and crannies that are hard to get and the Neon Pink stands out in everywhere.

Should have go back and fix it with Automotive touch-up paint, little bottle with a tiny brush with automotive quality paint. If I ever get around to it, I'll hope it works out better.

That would be the best choice, an automative-quality paint. But that might scratch or even flake, no? Hate to see any chips fall into the phone's guts.

Get a plastic paint should stick really good (used it for my xbox controller which is used roughly an a lot)
Should come as a spray paint kinda
Their are a lot of differnet ways to paint it or you can have a custom back made? May cost some money but you can make it look pretty awesome
Clear/ clear color

I am glad I got the black with white inside.

A good plastic paint woild work the best. My next choice would be model/hobby paint. They often bond well to plastics.
