    Panda crew signing in. Was gonna do white phone/black bumper but will be doing the opposite now, for obvious reasons.

    Yeah, that looks pretty sweet. Now that I think about it, I'm actually kinda glad only the black iPhone was available.

    Anyone else think that white border will start to collect dirt?

    My thoughts exactly. That's why I went with the black bumper, despite thinking the white looks better. A few months down the line and that bumper won't be so white anymore.

    Yes, but I'm sure Apple would be happy to sell you new bumpers every few months!

    Nice to know it fits in the dock with the bumper on.

    1) Wait for the white one because that's ultimately what your heart is set on.

    2) Be like the other people on this forum and buy the black one because you have to have it now. Then return it to the store and have that one sent back as a refurb. and walk out with your white one thereby having your cake and eating it too.

    yea, it's probably a rubbery plastic....I'm guessing it's going to get dirty quickly...

    if you look at the closeup pics of the bumpers, though, they look alot better than just "rubber" sure they can be easily cleaned too with some alcohol or water. im not too concerned about it getting dirty. better than than my phone.

    true. i'll see how i like the black till the white comes out. may just stick with it cause it could grow on me n all, but white is always an option depending if it comes out within 30 days lol. whatre the rules in terms of the 30 day return/exchange?

    I was being sarcastic with my 2nd option.

    You get hit with a 10% restocking fee.

    Also, you can be like the other people on here and try to weasel your way out of the restocking fee by making up a random issue with your existing iphone and how only the white model will fix the "issue."

    And as mentioned, most likely will be hit with a restocking fee.

    yeah in all honesty i dont mine like 20-30 bucks fee to get the white. got the full discount upgrade price anyway. so i CAN use it and then return/exchange for the white?

    I ordered the orange one. The white one will get too dirty. Black on black? Nah. Pink? NFW. The blue is a powder blue and girly. Green is ugly so that leaves orange!
