Well, now you can.

Thanks mate! You really are a complete solution provider. ...You’re really a godsend. Thanks a million. Will drop you a good trade rep and a post on good service provided. cyw, VR-zone Forums
Thanks for all the advice you’ve given on non-camera iPhone 4 usage. I’d never thought such a thing existed until I saw that you were selling it. Ashwin, VR-zone Forums
I actually contacted you months back as I was overseas, since I knew you had limited stocks. And you actually kept it for me, and took the time to answer my queries via e-mail. Thanks for the help! 9XXXXX67, VR-zone Forums
Question: Who are you guys? How did you get your hands on these non-camera replacements?
Answer: Just like you, we are a bunch of people who work in places where we can't use our iPhone 4's. We were missing out on EVERYTHING - from WhatsApp, to Foursquare and the other several millions of apps out there.
One fine day - one of us decided that we had enough of this nonsense, and called up every factory in China we knew that produced iPhone 4 parts. After much negotiations and "coffee", we were finally able to get our hands on these! (It didn't come cheap, by the way - just so you know.)
Question: I work in a military camp in XXXXXX, and we aren't supposed to modify our handphones. Do you sell ready-to-use sets?
Answer: Yes we do - but these ready-to-use sets are usually a little bit steeper than the market prices due to shipping costs/weight. We strongly recommend you use our kit to keep prices as low as possible for you :)
Question: What's with the prices? They seem a little on the premium side...
Answer: See the first FAQ question first - These replacements are priced as low as possible (to our very best ability).
A normal (camera) iPhone 4 back replacement from the repair shop costs $15 less than this. We don't have much of a profit margin here, and honestly, our cost is pretty high too - but hey, to use the iPhone 4 at work everyday.. Well, it gives you a satisfaction which no other phone can!
Question: How can I make payment?
Answer: We prefer PayPal (which allows you to use Visa, MasterCard, AmEx, etc) - but we can accept Bank/Wire Transfers, Western Union, MoneyGram, etc too. Feel free to talk to our team if you prefer alternative methods.
Question: How do you all ship my package? What is the shipping cost?
Answer: FREE. FREE. We ship for free via Registered Mail - which comes with a article tracking number. Once again, it's.. FREE.
Question: I want a set with the front camera removed. What are my options?
Answer: If you're in Singapore, one of our guys can help you physically remove the front camera as well for a small token fee. Or if you're far, far away - you can check out this guide on how to remove it yourself!
Question: How can I e-mail/contact you? You guys are awesome.
Answer: Thanks. You can reach the NonCam team at help[at]noncam.com. We are based in Singapore (GMT +8), hence, please allow for the time difference when waiting for our replies!
