My Funky White Touch

I've just bought a white housing from Hong Kong on ebay for my HTC Touch, and fitted it the other night, and I'm really pleased with the way it looks :(

I haven't seen many proper pictures of the Touch in white so I've just taken some.

It went down very well at the pub last night and gave a couple of iphones a run for their money :D

It was a bit fiddly but here goes :(

Basically you have to, remove the battery cover and undo the four star screws.

Carefully remove the front plate (I just used my finger nails)

Remove the two screws holding down the keypad, pull it out, unclip the ribbon and feed it through a hole to remove it.

You then need to force the screen protector off the original front plate which is stuck down but it will "peel" off.

The new housing didn't include the two bits of mesh covering the earpiece and the speaker on the back, so I had to prise them off and superglue them on to the new housing. Also the silver piece around the camera lens is loose so I superglued that on to the new battery cover.

You then have to prise out the earpiece speaker which has two little bits of clear plastic attached to the sides which reflect the leds through the earpiece hole. I stuck them down with superglue to make it easier as they were just loose.

I then superglued the screen protector on to the new front cover, and then poured myself a glass of whisky :D (optional)

Then it's just a case of putting it all back together. A bit nerve racking but everything works fine and it looks like a brand new phone.

There's a few on ebay, but make sure you get an original HTC housing.

Good luck :(
