    An iPhone in a hue other than black, white, or silver? While a red model has been rumored since before the 3G even launched, we've never thought about a pink one -- let alone one hitting eBay. The text on the back of the device convinces us that this isn't a simple ColorWare job, but there aren't any photos of the back of the packaging either. Our take? Some OEM in Asia whipping up custom colors. But hey, Macworld's just under a week away, so who knows?

    Black, white, pink, blue... keep 'em coming

    I should've known we really don't need cases just to change the color of the iPhone :rolleyes:

    has the old 3g logo on the box, not the 3G from 2.1 onwards (have they changed it yet?)

    I hope that doesn't happen because I would probably die from laughing at this board so hard afterwards.

    I'm not against other colours. I think it'd be pretty cool, as long as it's done right. I saw that red one they posted a long time ago, and oh God was it fracking ugly.

    I originally saw this on Engadget. I thought the pink iPhone was pretty neat.
    But I was just guessing it to be a Photoshopped fake on eBay or a Colorwared iPhone.

    Pretty neat though. Let's see if the highest bidder got their surprise. :cool:

    I know it says that, but I'm still saying it probably is, even though they're usually a reliable source.

    I thought CW preserved the text if you wanted? Guess I was wrong.

    not something I'd want to do to a perfectly good phone, but if you're out of warranty and have a bunch of cracks, looks to be well worth it.

    Such concise and comprehensive instructions!

    I wonder how many people buy these back covers without realizing just how much of a challenge it can be just to remove the back cover in the first place?!

    I doubt this is real, but I guess we will have to wait and see. :)

    You can actually do it yourself...

    all you have to do is buy a diffrent color backing off ebay....cheap like 10 bucks... and it comes with a kit...you take your iphone apart and change the backing. ;)
