Do the color sets take a shine better than the black? I've not seen a black set nearly as shiny, looks great!

Thanks, Doug--I never thought this one would do so well!  The buyer had bought a phone from me a couple of years ago.  I love repeat customers!

Thanks, tjmack99!  Black gets just as shiny, but it shows every little imperfection, just like a black paint job on a car.

Thanks, aec, I was pleasantly surprised!  A couple of days before it ended I still had no bids, and an ebayer asked me to do a "buy it now" for $69, which was my opening bid.  For a while there I thought I should have taken her up on it!  You just never know with an auction--sometimes it doesn't really take off until the last few seconds.
