    Anyone here know where I can get the Menu, Return, Talk, and End keys from an 8330 at? Also, are they compatible (will they fit) an 8310?

    You can get the 8310 set at www.cnn.cn. Not sure if the 8310 and 8330 sets are interchangeable, though.

    Update:

    Ok guys and gals, here is an update of my Flat Black project. So far so good! The only thing I am waiting on now is the Black Lens to come in the mail. However, I do have to say that it looks dang good with the silver lens as well.

    Hope you like it!!

    Thanks! It is actually a lot easier then you might think. Holler at me when you are ready, I have a couple tips that might make it more smooth.

    Rustoleum (recommend) or Krylon would probably be the best spray paint to use but you have to let it dry and have normal room temperatures for it to be good.

    From experience of spray painting and perfecting it.

    First thing you want to do is SAND you'll want to start out with maybe a 800 or higher grit sand paper then once you're done sanding sand it down with 2000-3000 grit sandpaper. This is just to remove the original paint or nicks you already have on your phone

    Second youll want to apply the first coat of spray paint make sure its very thin, its ok if the 1st and 2nd coat doesnt cover the thing entirely. Wait about 15-30 minutes between each coats.

    Third handle the paint after 24 hours what i would do is give it a wet sand using 3000 grit sandpaper especially if you're doing a dull color, itll make the paint more smooth. If you're using a gloss type paint or shiny paint sanding it will kill the shine or gloss of the paint.

    Let me know if my way works I've done spray painting this way on numerous items and they have turned out all good.

    Hulk,
    I'm curious to know how well the back lighting on the keypad works with the black keypad.
    I guess what i'm asking is, In the dark how well do the key stand out with the back light?
    :)
