    Whats stopping people making covers for the back of the iphone.

    SO you can have blue white black orange etc.

    Would have to be proper build quality etc.

    But what an awesome idea imo.

    ColorWare already does the entire phone. And computers.

    sounds promising - does the back come off easily if the two screws are removed? If it does, I'd definitely be interested

    problem with colorware is you have to send the phone away and it costs a fortune. Plus AFAIK they only offer service to the USA. A simple DIY switch over of just the back would be awesome

    From learning this, I've recently become obsessed with making different color combos and am seriously considering changing up my iPod Classic.

    Thank you for this wonderful discovery.

    I just wish the colors weren't so tacky-looking, I'd like some more classy colors
