Can somebody please tell me whether the following will be a good color conversion kit to do it by myself? What i am looking for an answer is whether the package includes all the parts to do a color conversion from black to white? Also anyone has any experience on the quality of the parts the seller has mentioned (He/She is saying all are OEM parts).

Thanks for your help.

In checking that seller's feedback it appears he doesn't use OEM materials.
I wouldn't think anything less would be worth placing on your iPhone unless yours is shattered anyway.
A simple color conversion?
I'd pass.

i looked into one myself but even though im a computer tech i dont want to risk ruining the phone taking it apart, some say its easy others say no. im just gonna do a backplate instead. i wouldnt take the risk going from black to white though, at least look into a color lol

Thanks for the replies. Do you guys think if i can get a OEM version of the above componenets i will be able to do a color conversion?

I may not do it by myself. I will try to get it done by somebody who has done it before.

I know that iphone4parts.com has full color conversions available. I've heard pretty good things about them and their products. And if you send in your phone to them, they will do the conversion for you for free. Don't know if the parts are OEM, though.

I think if you do some searching you will find some threads about these with reviews and personal experiences. ;)

The title tells you the only difference is color of the frame.

But the price difference is 20 USD which is quite big compared to the original 60 USD.

With the price tag, I can't say either is OEM. I think they are not OEM kits, but just with different color frames.

I definitely would not buy iPhone parts on eBay. In my opinion it's too easy to fake. As of today I received my red conversion kit from iphone4parts.com. I changed everything in an hour to a hour and a half. I think it looks great the only thing is just the home button color not matching perfectly but I feel it adds character. Screen is definitely retina. Everything very responsive. If you buy a kit I suggest using ifixits guides.

You can only get white and black oem conversions. They always cost more then the non oem models. I just did a non oem conversion from eachsupplier.com and it looks really good, the link in my signature will take you to my full review. Each supplier also sells the oem conversions.

Why not just google iphone color conversion (http://www.yoyobase.com/wholesale-iphone-accessories/iphone-4-4s-conversion-kits-iphone-4-repair-parts.html) , you will find the yoyobase.com will be listed in the NO.1, and where is a good place to go.
