    Think about it. Iphone 4 released last summer, 6 months later vzw iphone 4 comes out, and now a couple months later the white iphone. I find it funny apple has capitalized so much by the timing of their releases. And i laugh at the people clamoring for a white iphone as honestly its just a novelty imho, all you people buying one tomorrow are pretty dumb for pushing your upgrade further back by taking part in apples game. BTW, i am not an apple basher or hater as i have a mbp, and iphone4.

    Remember the South Park Episode on Mormons, anytime Joseph Smith said something stupid and the people believed him there was a song in the background going "dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb", that is what i hear right now for you all.

    Well I am sure part of this is keeping the iPhone 4 a relevant device after it's successor goes on the market. However I do not think this is the entire story.

    I tend to agree with the OP but its your money, spend it any way you'd like.
    With the next iphone months away I dont see myself getting into another 2 year agreement and not be able to get an upgrade when the next iphone is out. Or to go thru the trouble of selling my black i4, losing money in the process in order to get the same thing in white doesnt make much sense either.

    ... yeah man, especially those of us that lined up at the store last June to nab the 4 on the release date, then waited in the cold to snag the CDMA 4 this winter, now I've gotta pony up again for a white one... damn that Apple, got me everytime! I'll have spent over $1000 for what is essentially the same phone!

    Great episode of South Park.

    People that are buying the white iPhone, even though they already have a black one, understand they won't have the newest iPhone for long. My mom surprisingly wants an iPhone now (she doesn't need to wait for the next iteration) so I may give her my 32 gig black iPhone 4 and have her get the white one.

    the thing i find the most ridiculous is there will be alot of people tomorrow who already have a perfectly good black iphone4 getting the white one, dont you guys got better things to do with your money? Instead of wasting it on a phone you essentially already have, why not maybe donate that money to a good cause, and not into a company that is worth billions and is starting to get scary with its big brother tactics.

    I agree too, personally I think it's pointless. But if people want to do that it's their money.

    not necessarily bashing, just pointing out the obvious. :D

    btw, do you people really think Apple only just now fixed the issue with the white iphone? My guess is they have had it fixed for months and they figured a way to capitalized on profits by stretching the hell out of the iphone4.

    Not everyone cares about having the latest and greatest. Tons of people still use the original iPhone. If they're upgrading to the iPhone 4, their previous phone was obviously not as good. So they'll enjoy it no matter what.

    You called them dumb and stupid. That's bashing, no matter how you slice it.

    It's their money, let them spend it as they see fit.

    Contracts don't apply for those who pay straight retail $on.

    That's nice. Come in here and command me to do things that you clearly never did.

    No. I'm not gonna do your work for you. If you had thought about it beforehand then we could have avoided the whole thread to begin with.

    Why didn't you give your money to charity instead of buying an iPhone 4 or a MBP?

    What? The "truth" that all of us buy every Apple product that comes out?

    I feel so ridiculous for even having to type this, but...that's not a true fact.

    Seriously? We actually had to explain that to you? This may be the most ridiculous thread I've seen here all year.

    He likes to listen to himself talk. The number of people who do what he's suggesting is fairly small. Same with those that make the argument about Android users. Somehow people think that every time HTC, or one of them come out with a new handset, everyone that owns one will run out and get the newest one. A small percentage of geeks will, but the majority will continue to use their original purchase.

    I suspect that either his folks are still at work, and he's on their computer. Or, he's still in study hall...:D

    I personal think opinions of this nature tend to indicate the OP really feels the opposite of their statements.

    nora47, do you have nothing else better to do than attempt to personally involve yourself in the spending decisions of others? If you don't want to buy a white iPhone 4, that's fine, but others do, and calling them stupid for it is totally unacceptable. Like iFiend said, we can just as easily make fun of you for spending over $2000 on a computer and a phone, so people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
