    I just recently purchased the Shiny Blue Conversion Kit from iFixdirect & wanted to post some pictures of the final product. I highly recommend this company for anyone that would like to customize their iPhone. The kits are high quality & they give you everything you need to perform the swap. :)

    Looks very cool.... I'd do it to my 4 but not my 4s.

    Was it easy to swap it over? I have an iPhone 4, and would love to do this, but my experience of taking apart phones is little to none! Is it easy enough for a beginner to do without messing it up?

    I didn't think it was real hard, but you need to have a steady hand. If you have a digital camera I would recommend recording yourself throughout the process.

    Youtube is a great resource too. They have several videos that people have posted step by step instructions. Just take your time & don't get in a hurry. I'm sure you will do just fine. :)

    It looks like a cheap knock off iPhone to me made in Taiwan.

    I was at the apple store and I saw someone with a red conversion kit and I asked him about it. He said it was from ifixit and let me tell you it was stunning!! The quality was spot on! If I was brave enough to do the swap I would def do this to my phone.

    Each to his own........ There is nothing cheap looking about this company's conversion kits. They look & feel just like apple OEM parts from my experiences.

    I have already performed the conversion for a few friends with the Red, Blue, Green & Pink from this company.

    Is it easy to switch it back to the original parts for resale purposes?

    If anything, the new color adds resale to the device when reselling.

    I know every one is entitled to their own opinion but I strongly disagree with you.

    I don't think so. No way, no how does this add value to the device. In fact, i would bet it reduces it.

    Pretty cool, but you just voided your warranty!

    If your phone is less than a year old, the warranty is now void. I was talking to apple reps in an apple store about those and they said putting those on voids the warranty. Just FYI. But I'm sure you know that.

    Well it voids it if they see it. If there's a problem and he undoes the conversion, then the warranty isn't voided any longer.

    The home button looks a different shade to the rest of the blue.

    Considering the effort apple put into this problem with the original white iPhone 4 I would consider this conversion a failure.

    Just the home button looks a little dodgy...

    Have had this for about 2 months on my iPhone 4, but mine is red. With a shimmery rainbow antenna.

    Well I can say the home button certainly doesn't match the rest of the phone in terms of color. That's not a very OEM look IMO. Other than that I think it looks great.

    its definitely different. I think the back looks neat, but the front looks like wax or plastic to me... but its not mine and if you like it then nice job :)
