    I'm using a white 3GS and it still looks great. The white back actually wears much better than the black (hides scratches better). No cracks either.

    I've tried several cases, but I just love the look of the naked white 3GS too much to use one. Besides, I noticed more scratches on the chrome ring with a case than by keeping the phone in my pocket without a case.

    They discontinued the white one because it was available as a 16 gb and 32 gb and the 8 GB are always black. Those are the entry level ones and the only 3GS on the market.

    If you want a white 3GS hit eBay.

    I think the white just makes the cracks easier to see, but we're talking tiny tiny tiny cracks. You have to look real hard to see them.

    Oh okay! I was way off then! Lol. I love the white and black SOOO much. I could just get the 3Gs in Black like free from my stepdad. But I love the white so much. It's freaking awesome. I only wish they made the front white also.

    And does it look like a chick phone being white? I DON'T want a chick phone. Lol

    I've a white 3GS and two black 3GS and I must say that they're pretty much the same durability wise. The only thing with the white is if you drop it and it cracks, the cracks will be a brown/orange, whereas with the black you can't really notice.

    I have a white 3gs with a black case. I love the contrast of the black case but on the back you can see the apple logo with the white. It's really stylish and no the iphone 3gs doesn't look like a woman's phone.

    What does a chick phone look like? And how can they operate it with their tiny little wings?

    The white iPhone 3GS was one of my most favorite iPhone designs.
    I have black though.
