iphone shell question

ive had my iphone for a while now and ive never had a case on it(screen protector, but no case) and the back of it is worn down pretty good, and there is a crack on the plastic about an inch long from the charger port.

my question is, is there any way to get a new shell on it?

In all seriousness, here's a site that sells parts...not sure if their prices are competitive or not...

What about the screens? My glass is cracked but I have another 2G phone that works and the screen is perfect.

Just replaced my cracked and beaten up shell for a new blue one.
The process was not hard just took time, cause i didn't want to break anything.

Here are some pics.

Note : If you do attempt to do it watch out on connector labeled "3" flip up the Small black part on the dock connector side not the white part. If you mess this up you will not be able to hear out of the phone speaker.
