    I have an appointment with the Apple Store tomorrow to get a replacement for my white iphone 5. It has been perfect, but I have started having the distorted line issue and the entire screen flickering and pulsating. As long as they have plenty of stock, do you think they would give me a black replacement of the same size if I asked?

    I don't think so..it's white for white or black for black

    I tried myself to go from black to white but no luck

    Stay with the white you will have less problems

    No is the official answer and don't expect most stores to have much extra "stock" for another couple of weeks. :eek:

    Did you purchase from Apple? You are still within 30 days so you can return your white iPhone 5 and purchase the black iPhone 5.

    No, I bought from AT&T. When I spoke to applecare, they called the Apple Store I am going to and they verified they had plenty of replacement stock.

    I just thought I'd ask; not a big deal really. I like the white, but if I could get a black replacement, I'd be happy with that too.

    Thanks for the replies.
