    No, they will replace your phone with a matching phone. Sorry OP, but you are out of luck.

    My girlfriend just tried to do this after having problems with hers, the workers response was "no, we only do part for part replacement." still may be worth asking though. Good luck.

    Absolutely not. Why?, I don't know. But I tried to do it with my daughters phone and got a straight up No way. It didn't really bother me but I got into a discussion about why he was so quick to say no. He said that under no circumstances are they allowed to do a replacement for a different color. He even admitted it was a strange rule, but one that was strictly enforced.

    This has been asked a thousand times.
    No, you can't warranty swap or swap for any reason for a different color.
    Company policy.
    Same model, storage and color.

    It's a different model, SKU. Why would they swap your iPhone model for a different model for free? Think about it. It doesn't even hurt the inventory. Why? Because it's still the same phone. A black iPhone is not labeled the same as a white iPhone. Same goes for the 16GB & the 32GB. It's common sense guys.
