    Those look pretty cool. It might reduce the buyers pool if you sell the device down the road.

    I had an iPod Touch that had my initials engraved (I used the engravement option apple offered)

    I ended up selling it for as much as other iPods w/o engravement. It was weird, but most people cover it up with a case anyway.

    im sure apple wouldn't approve of you etching stuff into your phone and then looking to get it replaced. Plus it also kills resale value unless you have one hell of a drawing. Like the mona lisa or something everyone thinks is cool.

    How can they prove it isn't just regular wear? Random, beautiful wear. :D

    I don't think aluminum gets drawings in it after use.

    Those look cool, but I rarely look at the back of my phone or set it down screen-side down.

    At first that made sense, Captain Jack. ;)

    But how are these other people going to see it if I'm holding the phone? Or am I supposed to be pretentious enough to make a point to show it off? And why spend money on a mod that I'm not going to look at?

    I still think it's cool looking though.

    people notice.

    just like when you tattoo your back. you wont see it, people wont usually see it under your clothes but at times it will get noticed.

    perhaps when a friend borrows it at a party?

    Meh, it doesn't do much for me. I wouldn't do that to my iPhone.
