    Has anyone ever changed there black iphone 4 into a white one. Ive seen ads on craigslist who can do it for 100 dollars or so. I have been wanting to get the white one for a long time. It looks really cool anyone ever do this?

    I'd say you would be the first one. You should totally do it and report back.

    Plenty of people have, even when before the white iPhone 4 was announced. You should do a search on YouTube. There are several reviews on these conversions.

    IMHO, Its not worth voiding your warranty, not to mention you can totally f-up the process and destroy your phone.

    Do your (a lot) research first.

    this was discussed a lot before the white iphone came out. . OEM white parts are nearly impossible to find. Your camera will suffer when you use flash because it lacks a genuine diffuser and you lose out on the coating of the screen.

    I cant explain much about the coating. I read it awhile back about how to spot a real white iphone with a fake white iphone. Basically the water beads like on a new car with a real iphone.

    a friend of mine ...

    A friend of mine did the conversion with iresq.com. Don't really remember exactly how much it cost him but I know it was more than $100. He bought the iPhone sometime before Christmas and sent it out, got it back in 4 days and it looked as if it was a genuine white iPhone. So many compliments on it as well. BUT, as stated before me it does void your warranty :(

    Sell your black one and get a white one. It's gonna cost you a little bit more but it's worth it to have an official one, in my opinion.
