Samsung SCH-U740 Alias
Can "Dummy Phone" keypads be installed on a real phone?
The reason I'd want to do this is because I much prefer recently redesigned keys, which better distinguish the 12 keys used for voice dialing without making the letters hard to read when turned sideways for QWERTY texting. Note the difference in these pictures:
New key design (letters & numbers easy to read in both directions):

Old key design (letters & numbers hard to read in either direction):

Does this look like a possible easy swap, or at least a possible difficult swap, or are the keyboards on dummy phones completely unusable on a real phone? Anyone here seen either taken apart?
And while on the subject, are all SCH-U740's with the old keypad either black or gold/champagne and all that have the new keypad silver/gray, or did the color change and redesigned keyboard occur at different times?
