I have a white one, but I regret it..

so i went into the store about a month ago, and bought my iphone 5, i love it. and i went in thinking i wanted black and walked out with white. something about how clean and nice it looked sold me. but i'm starting to regret it, i shouldve gotten the black one. aside from putting a black skin on the phone does anyone have any suggestions on how to remedy this?

First world problem...seriously, does it really matter? I was on the fence about the color too, but I like both. I went with white because I like the screen bordered with white. Just try some different cases. In the end, the color of your phone does not affect its quality or usability. I'd say get over it.

Just remind yourself of how badly the slightest of damage will look on the black one, and the fact that the look of it will be ruined after a drop onto anything rough.

Trade it with someone who has a black one but thinks they should have gotten a white one. The black ones are chipping a bit on their coloring (I know mine is) and I'm sure there are a lot of owners who wish they got the white one for that reason.

Yeah, I mean, joking aside, isn't it pretty obvious? Your phone is out of the return period, so you can:

Swap it with someone (see above)
Sell it, buy a black one

or do something like some skins, that basically change the face color up, here's a good option:

Personally, I like the white one better this year. I agree you should try to set up a trade. There are likely a lot of people who wish they got the white.

Check Amazon for the Tech Armour matte finish black iPhone 5 snap case. It does a nice job covering most the back and sides of phone in a black finish that should make your phone seem more black, lol. On the positive side, it is only 5.98 shipped!

Your best option would be trying to trade with either someone you know or somebody on Craigslist.

Trust me, you made the best decision. I got the black one on release date about 2 weeks later, the chipping commenced. I SHOULD have gotten the white version. But I had the white 4 and wanted to get the black one so bad...so much for that.

You have to go into your account. Look for signature. Type it and save it.

i posted on here not needing some people to point out the obvious responses to stop caring, that clearly helped. i was looking to see if anyone had any experience with color swapping and if that was even available for the 5 yet. or if there was a skin that was a complete wrap, or a website besides craiglist where i could post for potential trades.

So what, we should help you switch it (which you can't) to have you come back in a month complaining how you should have kept the white? I honestly don't understand people these days.
