    4 days ago I bought a white iPhone 3GS 32GB. Is there anyway to return to get a black 3GS?

    I bought it at the apple store.


    Thanks.

    10% restocking fee... otherwise deal with it... white is sexy.

    How much would 10% be?

    32 GB = $299

    $299 * .10 = $29.90

    so just under $30

    Exactly. White is classic Apple. Black just looks like any other random Blackberry. White iPhone > Black iPhone.

    I think (and research confirms) that when you view video, white border is distracting, while black actually is calming for the eyes. That's the reason iPod Classic (the first video iPod) came out in black years ago.

    That said, you have 2 options OP - like someone said before, 10% restocking fee is about $30 - or you can get a black case that covers it entirely for about as much or less. That way, you'll have sexiness of white and usability of black. Imho.

    Hmmm... I kind of wish that I got the white instead of the black. Too bad you weren't in Las Vegas so we could trade.

    I can't even see a white border when watching video. All I see is a black border with a chrome bezel on my 16 gig 3Gs

    while white is definitly Apple, and my 3G was White, i got black this time around, made it seem more NEW. I have a nice gunblack case on it, it looks good with the black.

    oh, and no discoloration:p

    I have the same problem. Except I got mine on launch day. The Invisibleshield looks disgusting on white after about two weeks. Ugh.

    Exchanged mine for color preference... no restocking fee no questions asked.

    Just take it in.

    Is there a restocking fee? I exchanged and downgraded from a 16gb white, to 32gb white, and back to 16gb white (all 3gs btw), and I was not charged a restocking fee all within a 2.5 week since date of purchase 6/26/09.

    Last week I bought a Blue Lexus at the car dealership but today I feel like I prefer a Green car. Do you think they'll exchange it for me? I've only driven it a couple of hundred miles

    Ok.. The same day we adopted a baby boy. Do you think I can return him so we can get a girl instead? It's only been 7 days....

    As long as it hasn't been 30 days (and there is no water damage), you should be able to return the boy.

    My first ipod was white. Then I bought a black ipod video because I thought the black looked so sleek. About a year later I said to myself that I would never go with black again if I have the choice. Between the black and the white, it seem like the white held up better cosmetically. Scratches and fingerprints don't seem as visible. Because of this, I went with a white iphone.
