    I got a white iphone 3GS because the other 4 members of my family all have black ones and i've spent too much time watching the "is that my phone? wait where's my phone?" fiasco, but i've heard from a few people 'oh the white back looks ugly..'

    what do you think?

    jk, imo black is overplayed! and not distinct with other phones out there... all the phones are black.

    Smudges are ugly. The white one doesn't have that problem.

    Same situation, but I don't think that it's ugly.

    And it shouldn't matter what we think anyways. Haha.

    It's something about the front still being black. The phone is both black and white and I think it looks pretty dumb and ugly.

    I loved my white 3G. Until it started cracking... and they all do, sooner or later.

    IMO, white looks better.

    It may look even better if the front face is also white.

    I have the white, got it both times (3G, 3GS) I find it distinctive and also reminds me of the iconic apple color.

    I love it.

    Well, if you have to ask if something is ugly, I'm sure you already know the answer to your question. ;)

    Why would I get my post deleted for saying the white iPhone is somewhat girly? Hm, I'm new around here, but I guess the mods are strict. Like I said before I've only seen girls/gay guys with white iPhones. Not to offend anyone.

    Mac people tend to be pretty liberal in their thinking, and honestly typecasting a color as girly/gay isn't really going to fly with a lot of people here... yes it's just 'in your experiences' but if someone says 'in my experiences _______ people are stupider than ______ people' it's still racist :p

    I believe the white is just very girly. I've always had a black one, save for the 2G.

    IMHO

    too loud for me. I'll stick with stealth black.

    I guess you're right, but I personally would have considered a white one if they had them in stock. However they were out and I didn't want to wait so I got black.

    Yeah, you have to be careful around here about what you say. Mods love to express their internet power. [JOKE]

    I was at the Apple store the other night looking at the cases and one of the employees came up to me and mentioned that I should have got the white iPhone because it looks "so hot" in the lime green Incase frame case. Hmmm... riiiight. :rolleyes:
