Has anyone here sucessfully done this with a Cingular 2125 (with the hump)? I have read these posts over and over and am having a very difficult time removing the antenna cover. I've got a bad scratch on the silver fascia or front of the phone and need to remove the back cover. I was planning on using some model paint to repaint the silver portion of the phone. The scratch is just at the point on the antenna hump where the silver part meets the antenna cover. I can get one side started, but it feels like something else is holding it in place. On my phone, the little opening just to the left of the battery connector is very small. I'm wondering if the antenna cover on the 2125 might be held in place differenty than models without the hump.
I would like to buy a new complete housing for this phone, but can't seem to find one anywhere. I've seen Fluffcats's Ebay listing, but that housing wouldn't match up with my phone since it has the hump. I'm concerned about my reception if I were to remove that oversized antenna trying to fit it into a C600 housing. I called Cingular, who referred me to HTC who referred me back to Cingular. It looks like no one will sell parts for this phone. I had resigned myself to having to paint it, but I can't even get the antenna cover off. In the process of trying, I seemed to have done something to keep the antenna cover from closing back completely. Now it kind of sticks up on the left side. Any help would be appreciated.
*I've attached a picture that shows those two openings. Notice how small the opening is to the left of the battery connector. I'm afraid I'm going to damage something trying to get that antenna cover off.
