Change the Look of Your Cell Phone, Fast!

Jun 14, 2008
Every few months it seems that the cell phone service providers are trying to get you to change phones and extend the amount of time that you are locked in to their service contract. They try to entice you with sleek looking cell phones designed to catch your eye and try to make your old phone look boring. However, you can join the smart people and spice up the looks of your existing cell phone with some very creative cell phone accessories without the additional, recurring expense of upgrading your service contract.

Interchangeable Faceplates

Several new phones, like the Samsung T639, are now shipping with interchangeable faceplates inside the box at no extra charge. Interchangeable faceplates give users the ability to change the look of their mobile phone with a few simple snaps. Most cell phone makers, and the carriers they sell their phones to, will offer faceplates for their most popular models. However, the faceplates offered by the makers and carriers are often limited in color, style, and can also be on the rather pricey side. Luckily, third party makers of cell phone accessories have seen the opportunity in the market for a wider range of colors, styles, and of course lower prices. You can choose from a large selection of interchangeable faceplates for most popular cell phone models on the market, without the need to go directly to your carrier or mobile manufacturer. Available from numerous online vendors, mall vendors, and often even your local convenience store, interchangeable faceplates are now a fun and fast way to give your cell phone a whole new look.

Skins

A "Cell Phone Skin" is a customizable, removable, and replaceable vinyl decoration that is adhered onto your mobile phone. Several companies now devote themselves only to the creation of Skins for laptops, cell phones, digital cameras, and even your mp3 players. You will have the ability to pick, from a list of devices, your exact cell phone model and then select the Skin that appeals to you. The Skins are custom designed and cut to fit each device perfectly. Some Skins are in several pieces, depending on the design of the mobile phone they are customized for, and are very easy to apply to your phone. Simply clean the phone thoroughly, either with an alcohol wipe or a damp cloth, and apply the Skin. You can, also, remove the Skin easily. However, the adhesive might not work as well the second time around. Ranging from $6 up to $30 for a customized and personalized design, a Skin for your cell phone is a great affordable way to give a completely unique look to your mobile phone.

A Bit Of Sparkle

A rather popular option amongst younger cell phone users is to stick small crystals on to their phones. These sparkling adhesive accessories are available either as individual crystals to apply one at a time, or they are available in intricate designs. Most mobile phone carriers stock the sticker sheets in their retail stores; however, a larger and often cheaper selection is available via most third party mobile phone accessory sellers.

From a funky animal print, a picture of your niece, or to a design with your favorite Star Wars character you will find that your options are practically limitless when it comes to changing the look of your cell phone fast.
