    I never really cared about white, but now I really want it for some reason. Two of the lines on my family plan can get it for $499, so I might grab it with one and sell my current iPhone 4 for an easy $450 or so. Only downside is contract extension.

    I'll leave my other line alone, which is eligible for full subsidized pricing on June 18th, for iPhone 5.

    Any other current iPhone 4 owners going white?

    It's just a color change and the device still performs the same. So no. Plus with the iPhone 5 coming this year why would anyone extend their contract just for a color change? I bet iphone 5 is going to be in white. Just wait for the iPhone 5 in white. I don't know what's so exciting about the color white that makes people want to sell their black iPhone 4? It's the same device people. If you want white so bad wait till it drops in price to $99 dollars.

    I really wanted white, but wasn't willing to wait this long. I have enough money for one, but there's a lot of things that money could be better used for, and getting apple's newest products isn't one of those.

    My wife is. I'm using the upgrade on my line to get her the white model. In turn, I'll take her black 4.

    Good choice. It's not even a 'new product', just a product that was released 10 months ago in a new color. Functionality is 100% the same as black and it'd be just plain dumb to pay any money for the White iP4 if you already have a black one. Unless you're in the KKK then I'd understand. Joking! :apple:

    iPhone 4 street value is between $400-550 though, so you wouldn't be paying anything. Only downside, depending on how you look at it, is contract extension. I don't plan on switching, so it doesn't bother me.

    I wouldn't really go through the whole hassle of buying the phone for full price, extending the contract and selling the iPhone for a different color. From what it sounds, if you are a person who would go through that for a new color, I would assume the same for a totally new iPhone. (iphone 5?). Plus, it's really just the same exact phone in a different color. So I don't know, up to you.

    so to the people who are going to buy the white iPhone 4 now are you guys going to be mad if it goes down in price to $99 dollars when the new iPhone 5 comes out?

    No one should be. That's the norm for electronics.

    um Didn't they get mad when the first iPhone went down in price like within a few months? I think I remember that. And then apple gave them gift cards or something like that.

    I'm content with my black one. The white looks nice, but I've never really liked electronics in white. The black and the brushed stainless steel looks amazing IMO.

    I'm strongly considering it. I've wanted the white one from day one, and I'm not too worried about the iPhone 5 because if the rumours of a September release are to be believed then by the time it's actually on store shelves that's half a year away.

    I'm going to see how much I can get for my black iPhone 4 on eBay, then buy the white one direct from Apple contract-free.

    I know, I know. I'm a sucker!

    I don't really care about the white iPhone. I have a case on mine anyways. So it defeats the whole purpose. (I also prefer it to be a white back and black front. Like the 3G.) If they released a red iPhone... I'd for sure consider buying it.

    No way.

    I'm taking a wait and see approach, before ever buying another iPhone.

    Say what you will, but my iPhone 4 WAS AFFECTED by Antennagate.

    My smartphone of choice "should" be an iPhone, now if Apple will just build a good one that works as a phone.

    Then I'll be as happy as I am with my other Apple computers and gear.

    I believe that antenna attenuation does exist more commonly with the iPhone 4 than other iPhones. However, the attenuation is very minimal, and not very noticeable, UNLESS you are in a weak signal area strength with your provider. If you are claiming to be having problems with antennagate then maybe it is time to move to another carrier?

    On-topic: White iPhone 4 will be mine in a few hours. Friends husband works at Verizon, and he is opening tomorrow, so he said he would be sure to put one aside for me. My moms gonna go pick it up. I'm gonna go get it from her at work. And it will be mine.

    Like I said, no one should be. Any electronic device is practically outdated the moment you turn it on. :D
