    I think the black iphone with a gold trim like that looks awesome, i obviously wouldnt pay, but it would of been cool if apple had an option for that color antenna.

    All that money and you can't even get larger pictures? lol. Never understood these "custom" phones, especially when something happens to them and they need to be warrantied.

    Seller has 6 feedback so I would probably never buy anything from them unless it was cheap. LOL.

    Anyways, I like the gold band but the apple and writing is still silver so it will clash. Do not want.

    Well gold is a conductor so I imagine it'd have the same problem.

    You can get this done to any phone or gadget you want here in the uk for alot cheaper.
    Looks tacky IMHO.

    Yeah i have seen the gold plating services on ebay. I imagine this was the first one on ebay so people will pay over the odds for it.

    waiting for the diamonds edition. i don't know why people buy these, unless they really just have too much money to burn.

    My friend used to own a gold plating machine, something like that would be dirt cheap to do.

    It only will be a matter of time before someone makes one encrusted with Swarovski crystals, repaints the underside of the glass with a shiny gold surface, and sells it for $20,000.

    Tbh - I wouldn't trade my iP4 for that any day, it looks incredibly tacky IMO.

    Perhaps they went to the Apple store and bought an iPhone 4. Yeah, that's probably what they did.

    When you buy an iPhone 4 from the Apple store, it comes unlocked.

    If you can afford a high-quality custom phone then I doubt whether or not you have a warranty will make a difference.
