    Default Back cover replacement

    The tabs on my Note 2 have worn out, and the back cover doesn't have a snug fit. Any one know if this is covered by Verizon. I called Samsung, and they said they don't do replacements for the back cover.

    Replacement OEM covers are less than $10 on amazon. You can even upgrade and maybe go for a carbon fiber and change the look and plastic feel. Here is the original.

    Where can I get a carbon fiber one?
    Do they support NFC?

    I got mine on eBay. They usually do not support nfc. You can remove from your broken cover and attach to the new one. There is a molded spot where it goes. The glue is not permanent and is easily removed.
    I don't use nfc yet, so i did not bother.
    I also bought the carbon fiber backs for my son and wife's S4. It really changed the look and feel of the phone. If Samsung had used them to begin with, they would have saved themselves a huge amount of grief over the cheap plastic feel.
    Funny how a $10 item can change a $600 phone so much!

    Thanks. I'll be sure to check it out. Looking on eBay, it seems as though they all come from China, and will take about a month to arrive. Trying to see if I can find someone that sells it in the states.

    Mine came within 10 days each time I have ordered.
    The oem back from Amazon will come within a few days. I would just order both. Then you will have a back-up as well.

    I ended up going with this seller from eBay. I was trying to decide between the Carbon Fiber or Black Pebble version they had. They had other styles as well. I ended up going with the Black Pebble.

    I know you will love the cover and laugh when you see how awesome the phone now looks and feels.

    But it doesn't say those case backs are for the SCH-I605. Do they still fit?

    Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't think to look at the model number. Hope it fit when it finally arrives.

    Back cover finally came today.
    It does feel a lot better in the hand.
    Think I'll take a gamble and use my phone without a case.
    I was using the Seido case with my previous back cover. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with new back cover because it seems to be a tad bit thicker than the original.
