I have the black iphone and I'm looking to swap for a white one. My friend who just came from abroad is also looking to get an iphone (black) from AT&T.

Is it possible to reserve a white iPhone under his new line, pick it up tomorrow at the store, and swap out the SIMs?

Yep! (Hope the store will have it in stock)

The Apple Store was actually willing to exchange my black iPhone 5 for a white iPhone 5 outright, without any additional charges.

Really? I'll call them and see if that's the case. Would it make a difference if I already opened it? (Still flawless condition)

I was looking at the white phone in the store and holding my black phone in my hand next to it. I told the Specialist that I wasn't sure that I liked the black and he suggested that I exchange it. I decided not to, but the Specialist said it would not have been a problem. He said that he could even move my AppleCare purchase to the new phone.

I would definitely confirm this with your store, as I could have just gotten an overly helpful employee.
