    I am sure someone will make the perfect background pic, with an inspirational/visionary quote or two.

    iPhone 4mySteve now that would be obsessive. I think it's a nice link...

    1955-2011 sounds a bit to morbid to me, no thanks.

    Oke whatabout iPhone 4bySteveJobs?

    Well if you think about it- iPhone 4S is basically like saying "iPhone 4 Steve". Pretty awesome if you ask me.

    i believe the slogan was *Think Different* now that with a good image is the perfect logo which doesnt directly or indirectly indicate steve jobs but also it does preserve his memory

    I respect Steve Jobs....but really?

    I'm also shocked to see other posts of people saying they "woke up crying" this morning from his passing.

    Not trying to sound cruel but I'm just shocked...

    Oh come on, why worry about changing a device in honour to the man who made it possible for you to hold it in your hand. iPhone or Steve Jobs on your iPhone, what's the big deal they are the same.

    I see what you mean and I also don't go in that greath lengths as crying and such. But Apple, iPhone and Steve Jobs are all of the same branding.

    Oke this is nice!

    Grammatically incorrect.

    Do you ever say: I read a book for by Conan Doyle. This song is for by Madonna.

    iPhone 4S literally means iPhone 4=four=for S=Steve, which translates into iPhone For Steve. No need for unnecessary preposition 'by'.

    I don't think you get it. Who says 4 means "four"? Thats YOUR assumption. What Muro means is obviously 4 as in 'the iphone 4’. You can't say you didn't get that-don't be obtuse. I think '4bySteve' (as in, theiphone4by Steve Jobs) is fine. I might get some kind of jobs related inscription myself-maybe a quote of his.

    Did you inscribe your CD collection when Michael Jackson died? Did you write on all your books when Arthur C Clarke died? Scribble on your DVDs when Gene Roddenberry died? Engrave your wristwatch when Albert Einstein died?

    Almost acceptable if he was a friend or family member. If not, then insulting to his actual family and friends - it is their grief. This is not about you. Go about your life. Find someone new to obsess over.

    I mean, we made it possible for being willing to plunk down a lot of money for one. Doesn't take away from his brilliance but I mean, you didn't know him. He was a guy who made cool products.

    Mostly likely just keep the ones I own and never sell them.

    Got a iPhone 2G yesterday the day Steve Jobs died without knowing he did until about three hours later once I got home from watching 50/50 (cancer movie). Coincidence.

    You can say I now own both the first and last iPhone that Steve Jobs has ever introduced on stage. Will NEVER sell them and keep them for sentimental reasons.

    Perhaps get a case that the Hong Kong teen had designed using his silhouette. They can even add this as an option for the next iPhone's back with that logo. A special iPhone with his logo on there. Fairly subtle and simple the way Steve would want it.

    Man I'm Dutch but I clearly though the brains of mAcrumors are above average which ends me to say. Is it correct if I put spaces between it,
    iPhone 4 by Steve Jobs(like in made by Steve Jobs) and don't start commenting No it's been made by a poor Chinese fellow.

    ----------

    Nice you understand me. about the iPhone 4Steve thingy even in Holland on the news it is been used. And I must say I stated this comment 2 hours after the news of his death on Macrumors forum, I have proof.

    Not that it's a big thing but the chances are great I was first .

    ----------

    And what about the suckers who tattoo a name of a girl who break up afterwards. To each his owns, I did/t cry about him but I honestly saw him as a sort of hero and this is my way to pay tribute to the device I'm holding in my hands.

    You're incorrect if he means it's the iPhone 4 "by" Steve Jobs as in Steve Jobs' creation.

    No.

    Some people need to find outside interests.

    What would be the easiest way to get this onto the back of my phone? Does anyone know of a place where stickers like this are sold, or where I can customize iPhone skins?
