    I know there is rumors of the new one but this is such a great deal - didn't want to pass it up. 32gb white iPhone your with iFixDirect conversion for $550. Looks brand new. No prox sensor issue either. So clean with a white bumper :D I also order a graphite VAPOR 4 case so new pics when that comes in. I took these at the apple store :D Love seeing the look on people's face when they see a white iPhone 4.

    I didn't want to attempt this myself because it looks very complex and not something a newbie should attempt. And I figured even if the new one comes out in a couple weeks it would be at least $699 + $60 tax so $550 for a mint 32gb with the conversion seems like a deal. I

    Regarding the wallpaper: I shot that picture (fashion photographer) and the A is my first initial. The STORM unlock text string is the name of my studio :)

    looks nice and all but $550 seems like a lot. You can probably can do the conversion yourself if you took the time. You can shave off at least $200. I have an official white back plate on mine and I got it for $30. Front plates run about $150-200 depends on where you look.

    Regardless It looks real slick. The white bumper don't seem like a good fit IMO. Maybe it's just in the photo. :)

    Is it just the lighting/camera but does the white front look faded or is it a nice white?

    The conversion costs $150-$200 for a good kit and I sold my 16gb iphone 4 for $500 so it's not a bad deal :) I don't like the bumper either but I feel like it needs some kind of protection before the Vapor case gets here.

    As for the pic it's just the lighting - it's a nice warmer tone white, I've seen some lighter/cooler shades of white that I thought looks a bit cheap. Who knows which is more "real" - I guess we'll find out if/when apple finally releases the production units :)

    Looks good. Got my kit for 170. Did it myself. Question....the "grill" for the proximity sensor above the ear piece...cant tell from the pic but is it white or if you look at it can you see black? What i mean is did they color in the behind it with the Sharpie trick?

    Those kits look like crap. Not to mention overpriced. Love the dozen holes in a rectangular shape. Since you're also getting the overpriced Vapor 4 case you clearly have lots of disposable income. To each his own.

    This kind of thing reminds of people who purchase a new Corvette then proceed to purchase every gaudy add on they can for it (Ferrari style ground effects, neon windshield wipers, stupid big rims, stripe kit, etc). End of rant.

    Ummm is it the color that makes it look like crap to you or the quality of the kit?

    I never really understood this fascination with "The White iPhone 4" especially with the prices some of these places are charging for their conversions.

    I never understood the fascination with people buying expensive rims for their car. I guess to each his own. I did it cause i do like the look of the white and its different. I'm thinking about getting the deep blue kit next

    Not a fan of blue but I have seen a couple blue kits and, I'll admit, they do look pretty swank. I've only gone so far as getting a cheap clear back plate for my iPhone. Looks okay, just wish the insides of the phone were a bit more purtier.

    I know what ya mean. I do like the look of the clear kits. But i think the front would really mess with your proximity sensor. I ordered a cheap back off ebay to see how it was. The quality was total garbage. If ya get the right kit, it looks great. Well, to me anyways.

    And that is exactly why I didn't want to get the front plate although I was seriously tempted to go fully transparent. I think the back is just fine so I'll prob leave the front alone (for now at least) I got mine from SW-Box and it's pretty decent quality I think. Not OEM grade by any means but definitely not cheap crappy plastic.

    I heard good things about SW-Box. I did so much research before i bought my kit. Prices were all over the place. Lets see what happens when and if apple does come out with white.

    Glad you are happy. I think 550 is crazy but it's your money. At one time I wanted white but I gave it up a long time ago. Not really sure what this has to do with hacking. Sseveral similar threads in the accessory section.

    a 32gb iphone 4 with no contract costs $749 plus tax from AT&T.... so $550 with the conversion is a pretty good deal in my opinion. Especially since you can sell your black iphone and you are not extending your contract or upgrade eligibility.

    I would've waited a few more weeks for the real deal. All these white iPhones are using knockoff parts right now.
