    So after reading the post about the recent shortage of the white iPhone 3GS 16GB, I decided to post a poll. In true Macrumors form, the thread went off track and started to discuss how the two iPhone color options are gender specific. Ridiculous I know, but it made me curious as to who here has which color. I, a guy, went with white since I wanted a change in looks from my black 3G. How about you?

    I'm a guy, and I got the White 3GS. I needed something different than my black 3G, much like yourself OP. I don't think the color has anything to do with gender.

    Agree with this.

    You both have gone from black to white.

    FWIW, I am considering purchasing a black iPhone 3Gs.

    My girlfriend wants a black iPhone. She liked my black 3G sooo much, but it's my phone, and I liked the white one. Needed a change of pace. If I got her one though I'd get the black one.

    Goes to show the color is insignificant.

    Unless you get a sparkly pink case with unicorns and barbies on it. People may start to question things. But hey, at least they wont look at the color of your phone. ;)

    I too have gone from a black 3G to a white 3GS, needed to feel like I had something different after dropping $500.

    I could see gender being an issue if they came out in Black, White, Purple and Pink. But with white and black? Nope

    I have a White 32GB 3GS

    This poll is ridiculous.

    Everyone knows you buy the color that goes with the phase of the moon that was in the sky when you were born. Full-moon people buy white and new-moon people buy black.

    Duh.

    Gay-ey?
    Girly, fine, I understand that point...to a certain extent.
    But what does your sexual orientation have anything to do with the color of your phone?
    This thread is above gender neutrality/ association.
    Not sexual orientation.

    There was a thread on this last year... this is pointless and should be locked.

    New poll:

    Does MacRumors need a separate "iPhone Lifestyle" forum?

    Yep.

    I would be tempted to get a purple or pink one -- especially if it is the same pink as used for the Nano.

    I've got a black one because I prefer the all black look to the contrasting black front and white back of the white ones. If they did the white one with a white front, I'd get one in a heartbeat!

    Fixed it for you.
    Gay-ey? Your opinion is seriously childish and screams that you lack any sort of tolerance that a well-adjusted human being should have.
