    If yes, what color did you choose and why the regret?

    Nope. I was expecting to be a little disappointed by the black plastic after having the alu, but I actually don't mind it all, and on top of that I get a good 2-3 bars down here at my computer desk where I got NOTHING on my 1st gen iPhone.

    Nope - had a 2G and now love my white 3GS.

    It's hardly a color choice to regret - it's black or white and you mostly look at the black front anyway.

    I had a hard time deciding but stuck with white for my 32GB 3GS. I wanted to go with black originally for the sake of change but stuck with the same as my 3G.

    The only thing I'm missing from by not changing colors is the immediate recognition that it is indeed a new device.

    nope! wanted black.... ordered black... AND she's covered with a pink and black case anyways! (while would have looked funny in the couple of places where the phone show's in the cutouts!)

    White or Black, not like there are lots of choices to pick from.

    What I regret is that the iPhone still has a glossy back and not matte. Since a cell phone is something people handle a lot, you would think Apple would ditch the glossy back of the iPhone. All it does is show scratches more easily.

    had a white 3g, got a black 3gs. looks awesome, but definitely shows the fingerprints a lot more (as was to be expected). i have a case on 95% if the time anyway, so this is not a big 'regret'.

    Black all day for me. I like the uniformity and the white shows scratches really easily.

    I had a white 3G and got the black 3GS. I think I liked the white more, but I think black looks more professional.

    I'm not a huge fan of cases and the black shows smudges WAY more than the white.

    I also went from a white 3G to a white 3GS. I like the fact that smudges don't really show on it, and I think it looks classy. Yeah the black looks classy too, until you touch it and it's all finger printy. lol

    Had a black 3G and went to a white 3G S. Glad I made the color change. Seems to show less dirt / scratches.

    Nope!! My last non-iPhone was colored "Pimp", or white. Loved it. Then I had the 2G, and while I reallllyyy miss the alum, I love having white again. So...fresh...crisp...Apple-ly.I have a bright blue Jam Jacket on it though, not taking any risks. Makes the blue really pop, got tons of compliments on it already. Getting a SoloFX Monday, that thing should really pop with the white

    Wish I had gone white just so it doesn't blend in with the rest of em, but I went black.

    Next time.

    I really miss the aluminum though as I feel like I have to be much more careful with this device than before.

    I like the black because i think it looks stupid to have a white back, but still the front is black. So its like a black and white phone and not an all white like the black looks all black. but thats just me

    I saw a white in the store and it was DIRTY. All of the cracks and crevices, were black from people touching it.
    That turned me off from white. MAN, they look GOOD though when they are new.

    Had a black one, got a black one. Doesn't matter since it's in a case anyways.
