    Is it possible to Change the whole "body" of the iphone 5? If it is when do you think third party companies will sell them and how much does it cost for the parts(back plate, display and digitizer)? If I buy a white iphone 5 is it possible to buy from apple or any third party companies a black front panel?

    We don't know when.

    We don't know how much they will be.

    Apple will not sell you parts.

    They will make screens and back cases, probably in different colors too, eventually.

    Its not if, its when.

    Forgot the name, but there is a company selling backplate for $99.

    However that's a real pain to take apart everything to change out the back plate. (Everything needs to come out including antennas)

    As for front, haven't seen any yet. However you could just swap screens with someone who has the black... Of course finding someone willing to is the hard part.

    Yup forgot to ask when companies come out with the front, will the quality of the screen be as good?
