    Macenstein posts a gallery of an Envy green and Graphite Colorware iPhone. The paint job is described as "pristine".

    We'd previously reported on Colorware's iPhone options, which offers a custom colored iPhones in 29 different colors. The color modification costs $149 on top of the price of the iPhone.

    Yes, it will. And, this is one"hack" you can't wipe out before you take your iPhone into the Apple store for attention... unlike the things you can do with iFuntastic, etc., which are wipeout-able with a software restore.

    Dang, that is one ugly green phone! I thought we got rid of that color when we entered the 1980's. I think someone in the future must have invented a time machine, because I'm pretty sure that there were chunks that look just like this green iPhone in the Stegasaurus crap in the movie Jarasic Park.

    I personally think the iPhone looks best the way it comes. The aluminum look matches Apple and looks professional. I wouldn't purchase something like this unless the back of my phone was scratched up pretty bad and if it voids the warranty I would probably pass on any replacement.

    don't most "galleries" consist of a few photos rather than just one?

    :cool:

    I applaud his efforts to take the plunge, but I doubt I'd get something like this done... I'd be even more pissed if I dropped it.

    I don't know I think it looks pretty good with everything Smoke and a Black logo. I might actually do this. Before I do, I have a question for anyone with a MBP. Does the color on the back of the normal iPhone match the color of the MBPs?

    I think it looks great. I don't like the lime green colour, but they've done a great job on it - I particularly like the graphite on the back, but if I got it done I think I'd keep the chrome on the front (and obviously choose a colour other than limegreen!).

    Yes, it's expensive, but anything that allows you to customize your phone to your personality/preference is a good thing IMO.

    And no, the warranty isn't void - as it says, the Apple warranty is replaced by a Colorware warranty - meaning any costs for repairs within the warranty period will be covered by Colorware.

    This color will go great with my harvest gold oven and fridge from the 70's!

    Seriously though, its cool to mod your phone, and to each his own.

    At least this is not a clear back with LEDs that blink like a UFO when you get a call.

    The more concerning part is that it doesn't say that the Colorware warranty is the same as the Apple one. When you read their warrany pages the warranty they offer is much less. 1 month if you send them your phone, and they only fix things if they determine they caused the problem.

    Maybe the iPhone replacement warranty is better, but based on what is on their website, this would seem like too big a risk to take for me.

    To the original poster...What was the warranty info that came back with the phone when Colorware returned it to you?

    be well

    Well no special colors for me then. I will just keep the matching MBP and iPhone the way they are.

    Concerning the warranty, I don't think that getting the ColorWare would void the original Apple warrenty. If I understand correct, all ColorWare does is paint the exterior of the iPhone, they don't take it apart and replace parts. I don't think Apple would void your warranty for painting it. It is about the same thing as writing your name in Sharpie or something. If a situation came down to Apple having to replace your iPhone through the warrenty, I think that you would only be out the $150 to get it painted, not the $600 for the phone. I could be wrong though.

    i think if the back of my iphone was colored, i think i would be more paranoid about getting it scratched. and im not all about it voiding your apple warranty.:apple:

    I wonder if there's anywhere in the UK that does this sort of thing?

    Think I'll wait until my warranty runs out before I do it (that's if iPhone 2 isn't rumoured to be out for a least another 6 months!!), but I'd like to get it done. Just not 100% happy about shipping it to the States and being without it for 2-3 weeks just to get it painted...
