    I recently got a new Cingular V551, which I like, pretty much "as is". The
    rubberized case parts make it easy & comfortable to hold with no slippage
    if I change my grip. However, now that I have my V551, I've noticed a
    number of friends have the same model. What I'm trying to find is an exact
    replacement in a different color (maybe black/charcoal?) for the faceplate
    & battery cover. Googling seems to get a wide variety of faceplates, but
    all seem to be either metal (maybe metal-look plastic) or hard plastic, but
    none that are the rubber with or without metal insert. There was one that
    the picture appeared to be a black rubberized replacement without the metal
    centerpiece by Wildcat, but none of the sites include a description to be
    sure that it isn't another hard plastic set. Does anyone know if such a
    set exists? And who might carry it?

    Thanks. That might have been somewhere in the results I got. But, after
    going through 5 to 8 pages of nothing but hard plastic replacements for
    varying search term combinations, I was giving up hope of finding something
    like this.
