Only 3 left in stock @ $35 euro (after me today)  I did this side by side with original web page and  google translate copying and pasting each word as the normal transalating of did not work well on some pages

I also brought the shield frame cushion for $1 euro  N97 SHIELD FRAME CUSHION 9405314

total $43 euro shipped


My current lens is not scratched

Im not sure if my N97 That I have has the revised design LENS cover and GPS Antenna or not
According to my IMEI number, it was assigned in the 3rd quarter of 2009  (June,July,August)
If it's the same, at least I have a spare.

JJnz1 has not updated us with the GPS perfomance since his last post 17 11 2009 when he installed his B cover. (he's aslo not responding to PM's...come on??!)

I will let you know if I see, or notice any difference with this spare part

Ok. Recieved the  new and improved replacement B cover assembly today 4 days from Findland
What I noticed.

Definate gap in Lens Cover and raised slightly higher

The flash lens is resessed a little deeper and testing some photos, there is no flaring up of the flash in Pictures...Yay!!!

Apart from some serial numbers both my original and new B-cover looked  pretty much identical.
Went in the GPS data in location and accuracy was about the same maybe 9m 15m 17m 20m but seemed to be a little more stable

Went for a drive and locked onto 8,9,10 bars about 80% of the time (10 bars is the maximum) with
A-GPS, Network switched off. And no tinfoil as a mod at the back like what I had before.

No lag noticed yet ....looking good!!!
