    Just got these back from Colorware after being gone for a couple weeks. I thought I would post the pics for anyone that is considering getting this done. The lighter purple is Mystique and the darker is Prowler. Enjoy!

    Did they name the Prowler after the color that Chrysler painted their Prowler? It looks just like it. Not that I personally care for it.

    I really love the Mystique, however. That's a really fab color.

    Anyway, congratulations. :)

    that'd make me cry my ass off =(
    it'd be such a waste.
    it'd kill me for days.

    question

    does the phone get mad gripped up after you got this done? i assume it would be since the coat of the paint. it looks thick?:confused:

    The paint does not give the phone anymore grip than before when it was new.

    The blue and white phone was my old 1st gen phone and it happened in the first 6 months. It cost me $80 to get it repainted.

    Very awesome photos. I will get a colorware one day. I look at the site everytime right before I buy something. Almost got my iPhone done.

    Really nice, but not for me.

    What happens if the phone ever needs to be repaired?

    thats not too bad compared to the whole price of painting it again, lucky it was just the paint (or was there damage to the phone itself?)

    The painting voids the warranty so you will have to send it in to Colorware for repairs

    Eeek!

    If Apple had designed them to look like that, I very much doubt there would have been shortages on launch day.

    IMHO anyway.............
