The 6255 doesnt have clip on (Xpress-on??) covers, so anything you find will probably void your warranhty (because you would have to open your phone). Hence you wont find any dealers selling them. [speculation - someone may prove me wrong if they like...]

Let us know if you do find anything.

The phones can actually be supplied by the manufacturer in different colours. As far as I am aware Telecom have never advertised the 6255 in anything other than dark blue or charcoal (the dummy phones were dark blue i think). Nokia showing different colours on the box doesnt constitute advertising availability IMO.

The faceplates on ebay, consist of a faceplate that clips over the top of the exisitng one, it doesnt replace like xpress-on faceplates do and a new battery cover, which i need seeing as mine has come so loose that when you pick up the phone it leaves cover behind
