    I have the AppleCare Warranty and all, but I know they won't just let me switch it for the color. I have a 32GB black/slate iPhone 5, and for some reason I've been wanting to switch over to the white/silver model.

    Only way to do it is either find someone else who wants to swap or sell yours and buy a white one.

    This thread is going to end well.:rolleyes:

    Just man up and accept the choice you made. Apple is not responsible for your inability to choose between black and white.

    The others are right, the only thing you can do is sell your black and buy the white or find someone on CL to trade with. Your Apple Care won't transfer though so you'll lose that.

    AppleCare is not for swapping to get a new phone whenever you feel like it. It's an extended warranty. If you're phone is not defective AppleCare has no baring on your request. If you're phone is defective, take it in for a replacement. You can ask for a white one at that time, but the answer will most likely be 'no'.

    The answer will definitely be no, otherwise, people would be bringing their iPhones in with bogus issues in attempts to swap colors.
