    Does it have a white front as well?

    It actually does look good.

    Nice, but it's still not a white iP4 as it has the black front (which I prefer anyway). Call it an oreo.

    Very cool. Watched the video. Thanks for doing that. I actually prefer this to the actual white iPhone. I think white looks sharp on the back, but I don't like the upper and lower areas around the screen white.

    I actually wouldn't mind a red back. I'm a sucker for the black/red combo.

    Thats cool its just i want it to be flush with the phone. At least it does not affect the flash performance.

    Very cool. I might do the same, as I have a white 3G iPhone, and I'm used to white back/black front. Besides that, whenever I sell the iPhone 4, I can put back the black back without scratches. It will protect my investment! Nicely done. :D

    I like really like it! My old iPhone 3G was white and I really liked it. The only reason I wouldn't want a white iPhone 4 is because I don't like the way the home button looks and the line of sensors at the top being so visible. I was happy with just a white back.

    So does changing a back void your warranty? Can apple tell?

    Edit: by 'tell' I mean if you have taken off the black back, put on a white, and then switched back

    I doubt it, all he did was take the two screws out and slid the case off. Didn't even take him 5 minutes.

    tore a tenden in the top part of my finger... waited to long to go to the doctor cuz we thought it was just a sprain or something.. and by the time i found a doctor who attempted to fix it.. it was about 4 months later..

    no apple can not tell.. theirs no tape that breaks off or anything when u take the back off that voids the warrenty.. just switch the backs back and they will never no

    its covered by glass and heres a pic of the hole and pictures from the sides..

    sorry the pics arent that good.. used my macbook to take them..

    also.. theres no discoloration on the back.. its just the way the computer flashes the screen when it takes the picture that makes it look like that
