    Because this is a different take - we ask if anyone cares, rather than 'is it ok if i get the <color> phone".

    You fool! You must nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure! If even a single one of them survives, we’re doomed!

    ...

    Nah, don’t care one bit. The color of someone’s iPhone combined with other visual/behavioral cues may give me a rough indication about someone’s personality, but I don’t instantly judge that person. So if you’re a guy who wants to slip a rose gold iPhone into a Hello Kitty case, go right ahead. You’ll probably get a friendly smile out of me when I see you pull out that phone, but that’s about it. So no need to worry, unless you’re allergic to friendly smiles...

    I have a signature? :confused:

    I have no idea...I’m on mobile so I can’t see anything. What are you seeing?

    I don't care what phone they have, let alone color. I care deeply about the color of my phone. :D

    Oh, no that was part of my post. I’m wondering if that app (Talkatalk?) took the “Sent from” part and interpreted it and everything after it as my signature.

    If so, that’s kinda cool lol.

    I care what color your phone is about as much as I care what phone you buy.

    I'll gladly give you my reasons behind why I bought my phone if you are looking for opinions... but in the end I don't really give a rats what you buy or what color it is.

    :)

    The fact that other people worry about what others think is mind boggling. I guess it's to be expected though when the iPhone is such a status symbol.

    :rolleyes:

    Love my iPhone 8 Plus... I hear it's soon to be second fiddle to the iPhone X... while sharing the same processor and lacking a notch and Face ID. Somehow I'm sure I'll manage... :)

    Wow the thread puttered out after only a few hours.

    The takeaway: no, people - most everyone does not care that you have a pink, or a gold, or a blue phone. Stop showing us how insecure YOU are!

    I honestly don't even care what phone's other people have, let alone care about the color. Seems like a very weird thing to care about.

    I couldn't care less about the color of someone else's phone either. In general I couldn't care less about what anyone else does in general.

    Every once in a while someone will post on this forum that they want to show off their iPhone, or they worry about the color if it matches their other equipment, or if it’s a girly color, or they want to know what other people think. Those are the individuals that make me want to scratch my head and ask what is wrong with people. They’re thinking process in posting these questions is flawed and I don’t think they realize it. And that’s sad.

    No I do not.

    Shoe colour, however, is another matter. ;)

    Yup, it’s called “puberty.”

    Most grow out of it. Others never seem to escape that mentality.

    If someone else is ugly, that's their problem and not mine.

    I feel the same way about the color of their phones.

    So my hypothesis was correct. No one cares. Even if we believe the story of the person that heard of someone who did, that one person that did care was ridiculed for doing it.

    So in the future if you need to ask "I'm really insecure and can't make a decision without other's approval, but is it ok if I buy the color I really want?", the answer is:

    "NO ONE CARES". And the few randos that do are losers anyway.

    Problem solved! Thanks phillytim!

    We shouldn't see any more "I really want that X color, but I'm a Y and people might think I'm a Z if I get one" threads!

    Phew!

    No one who's opinion is worth caring about would care.

    Oh unfortunately we'll still see tons more of those new insecure threads pop up. Most people just won't get it, evere They are much too self-indulgent.
