    As many people already know, the new iPhone's back plate is easily user removed (just two simple screws and you slide the back off). What if a company started to produce new backs for the iPhones. Not just the glass but I am talking about rubberized backs or stainless steel backs or maybe even bamboo backs. Not only would just eliminate the possibility of the glass breaking, it would provide a level of customization iPhone users really haven't gotten. You would not have to worry about antenna issues(besides the ones now) because it is now placed on the side. Maybe this is not possible but I don't see why not as long as it is machined well. Personally, a brushed aluminum back would look extremely classy while adding some functionality. Just a thought.

    I'm 100% sure we will see just what you are talking about in the upcoming months.

    That's a good observation!
    I'm sure some company will do it, the question is whether or not Apple will oppose it and start voiding warranties.

    :) Hoping for a merge. I guess this thread title was more grabbing.

    Haha yeah don't take it personally. ;) In all likelihood this thread will die just as quickly and 2 hours later another will pop up that gets 100+ replies. The ebb and flow of internet forums is as mysterious and unpredictable as the weather. :rolleyes:

    Sorry if someone already posted this! Lately the forums have been moving so fast it is hard to keep up. Carbon fiber would also be a great functional idea. I really hope that this comes together soon I am willing to fork over some cash for a nice one!
