    My boyfriend and I both have identical, black 32GB iPhone 3GS's. We're constantly picking up each other's iPhones by accident. Neither of us want to get a case, but we want a way to distinguish the phones from one another.

    I think we'd both be cool with some kind of sticker on the back. But, I can't imagine a sticker that wouldn't start to peel away after spending 2 years going in and out of my pocket, which is always full of lots of other crap. I tried googling to see if other people were having the same problem, but I didn't see anything.

    Thanks for the help :),

    You can always engrave an iPhone, or get an iPhone skin.

    I have an iPhone skin on mine, and it's been about one six months, with no damage so far, and no peeling.

    Yep. All it would take is a quick click and a look at the wallpaper. I would rather that than any kind of sticker.

    Carve your names on the back, it's only cheap plastic, not like the iPhone 2G :D

    That's what we do here. It just takes touching either button to see the background.

    Real parents can tell Twins apart. Besides, it's more fun 'your' way.

    Buy cheap little dot stickers that you can stick on the back of the phone. The colorful ones that are the size of the holes in binder paper.

    One phone has a dot, the other doesn't. They're cheap and come in packs of 50 or something, so if one dot falls off, just stick another on.
