How to customize your phone in Animal Crossing: New Horizons


One of the first items you receive in Animal crossing: new horizons on Switch is your Nook Phone, a smartphone that lets you do all kinds of things.

To personalize your device, there is one element that makes your phone case as individual as you are. In this guide, we’ll explain the simple process to personalize your Nook phone.

How to personalize your Nook phone

Unlike furniture, you can’t personalize your smartphone with any of the personalization kits you get after attending Tom Nook’s personalization workshop.

To make your device unique, you need a specific item: a customizable phone case kit. In our experience, this item started to appear in the Residence Services terminal around the time we started the process of moving our first three additional villagers.

The customizable phone case kit costs 1,800 corner miles. But it does not unlock immediately upon purchase: it will take a day for it to be delivered to your home.

Once you have the kit, head over to any workbench, choose the “customize something” option and choose your kit. From there, you can choose from a range of new colors for your phone case – or you can apply a custom design.

Customizable phone case kits are single use only, so if you want to update your design you will need to get a new one from Resident Services.
