    Hi,
    I have a 6310i with a silver cover and it is looking fairly sorry for itself, the silver paint has rubbed off on the corners etc. I wanted to get a new cover for it, but it is not an express-on cover and my local Nokia shop want 30 to supply and fit one.
    I can get one off of ebay for under 10 and have the tools I need [I am an engineer] but I was not sure if it was something that was easy to do or if there was a reason the shop charge 30 other than greed.
    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance

    See for yourself. 6210 is similar as far as I know
    http://www.mobilespares.co.uk/shtml/6210dismantle.shtml .

    Looks ok to do, except the advice about the vibra motor (which may be why
    its 30 quid).

    Scrub that, knew I'd read it somewhere. Elsewhere on the site they say:

    Nokia 6310 and 6310i SILVER Original style copy housing SUPERB quality,
    come without vibra motor fitted. However unlike the 6210 THIS IS A SIMPLE
    operation to swap motors now, only a little clip!

    Looks like it'll be simple after all.

    Thanks for your help, maybe it is worth the 30 after all, at least if the
    screw it up they will have to fix it. If I feck it I will be looking at
    more than 30 to replace the phone.
    Cheers

    It is pretty simple really, the only note of caution relates to the locking
    lugs situated at both sides of the phone. Full dismantle instructions can
    be found at the UselessInfo site in my sig.

    Not sure why the concern, so long as the thing is still working OK. I'm not
    bothered about my 6310i showing it's seen a bit of action.

    Places it's been, it's hardly surprising.

    LOL!

    Can't criticise though, my 6310i is looking worn and I was wondering the
    same thing. :-)

    Fair enough. I withdraw my query on the matter.
