    I've been thinking about pre ordering both Black and White colours for the new iPhone! When in my hand I'll know which is the one! :)

    Anyone else planning on doing this??

    Guess I wouldn't have any bother getting my money back on the one that I didn't want eh..........:rolleyes:

    I think its a waste of time, effort and money. You can see what a white and black iPhone looks like right now. Based on the rumors you're not going to see a massively different iPhone. See which phone tickles your fancy now and pre-order that particular color

    Yeah, maybe you're right! Effort wise anyway, as I guess selling options are limited. eBay fees are ridiculous etc. Like you say time also. But I think either colour, when in your hand will be different than images online when released.
    I'm 90% convinced on Black by the way......

    Some apple stores allow you to change your mind. When the 4 came out I was dead set on the black but after playing around with one in line while waiting for the next specialist, I changed my mind even though my preorder said black.

    Those of you who like to upgrade yearly, you can have one in each color as Apple will keep the same design next year if the past is any indication.

    Yup, I see a pattern here now. 3G and 3GS were the same. Then they switched with the 4 and 4S.

    It takes a special person to go white :).....I am not that person. I really feel like you either love it or hate it. To me, a White iphone is very girly and out of place with all other electronics =/

    the two-tone may give it a different look, and the lack of fingerprints that show on the white is really nice, but I just think I would get sick of it after a few weeks and be wanting the black.

    I can tell you I'm not special and I fell in love with the white iPhone the day I saw it. Have not owned a black device since my 3GS which IMO did look the best in black..but the iPad and iPhone 4 white ruled

    I'm a guy and will be getting the White iPhone. Pink might be for girls, but those that think White iphones are for girls need to get their heads on straight.

    Seems a bit OTT if you ask me personally, but each to their own and all that.

    I've always had black iPhones (original, 3G & 4), but went white for my 4S.

    I'm thinking of going back to black for my 5, but I can see your logic in getting both home and then deciding which you're going to stick with.

    Re returns, I think in the UK that if you buy online you have to return online, but if you buy in store, can you return online to save a trip back to the store?

    But not only do you need to see if you like black or white, you need to be sure which storage size is best for you and which network is fastest with the best coverage for you.

    Just to be safe you should pre-order all of these:

    iPhone 5 16GB Black AT&T
    iPhone 5 32GB Black AT&T
    iPhone 5 64GB Black AT&T

    iPhone 5 16GB White AT&T
    iPhone 5 32GB White AT&T
    iPhone 5 64GB White AT&T

    ------------------------------
    iPhone 5 16GB Black Verizon
    iPhone 5 32GB Black Verizon
    iPhone 5 64GB Black Verizon

    iPhone 5 16GB White Verizon
    iPhone 5 32GB White Verizon
    iPhone 5 64GB White Verizon

    ------------------------------
    iPhone 5 16GB Black Sprint
    iPhone 5 32GB Black Sprint
    iPhone 5 64GB Black Sprint

    iPhone 5 16GB White Sprint
    iPhone 5 32GB White Sprint
    iPhone 5 64GB White Sprint

    if you cannot see what I am talking about, then why even have this conversation? I also wouldn't want a gold wedding ring...does that mean I shouldn't have a shade of gold car? Also do not care for white shoes :p

    I would say most people agree the white iphone is more feminine, doesn't mean a guy shouldn't own it and that is not what I am saying. I just do not really care for white as an accessory.

    I also would consider myself very metro-sexual, so your argument is invalid! I think I shop for clothes more than any woman I know :)

    Clothes shopping are for girls!

    See how silly your argument is.
