    hmm interesting, people have been saying here that foxconn have stopped manufacturing the white parts - i wonder if that has anything to do with it?

    send them an email see what they say.

    I find this interesting about iresq, at the moment they are "out of stock" of white backplates to ship out for home installation, but still offer mail-in installation of these white backplates. That doesn't make sense to me.

    Well i had sent them a message asking about whats going on and this is what i got back.

    "Not at the moment. Some of the new iphones are incompatible with the white parts so we were unable to convert some."

    when asked if they are still converting black to white iphone 4 :(

    I wonder in what way they are incompatible? Shouldn't the specs in general stay constant throughout the life of the model? What could they change that would cause the front and the back to be incompatible?

    im not sure what they mean there either.

    the only thing that comes to mind is where some members have been stating Apple now uses new screws at the bottom of the iPhone, maybe they dont have the required tools? But then again whats stopping them just converting back to the older screws?

    i dont know, it doesnt sound too logical but you never know.

    I dont think the screws have any thing to do with it, how would you ever get your phone repaired if they couldnt get into it? and I beleive they just changed the screws to a torx head witch isnt that uncommon. I have orderd a DIY kit from another company and am getting a new iphone 4 on friday. i will let you know how it goes

    The Kid spent his $130 Gs buying them all up ... no seriously,

    I suspect there was a manufacturing issue that Apple is not talking about.

    I think foxconn and Apple may be at odds over this and is the reason production was halted ... Apple does not want the stock that foxconn produced.

    we may never know the real reason why no white iPhones from Apple.

    just a theory :cool:
