    Hi there!

    I'm kinda tired of searching for good skins for my iPhone. I got a white one and the two skins i tried (Z-Life and GadgetShieldz) have both become grey/yellow. It looks very nice the first days after applying, but a week or two later they start to look yellow. Very very ugly!

    Everyone keeps recommending Best Skins Ever, but most of you guys have black iPhone's and you wont notice this problem. I found this one:
    Not looking so good.

    So is there any good skins for a white iPhone?
    I'm looking for a simple-back skin, not for the corners of the phone.

    the BSE simple back is what you're looking for and since its just the back, it should not collect as much gunk if any
    or get invisibleshield or bodyguardz as they offer lifetime replacements and include the application formula

    I've been through many cases, but now I'm convinced the Incipio NGP 20/20 clear is my last case. It's clear, not white and I'm not sure if you wanted white or clear. This case on a white phone is gorgeous. Nice fit, face down protection, no yellowing. You can even just rinse it off and it looks just like the day you got it.

    Highly recommended.

    Update: After using this for several weeks it has begun to turn "grey" on the back. I suppose this is just par for the course for "soft" or "gel-like" cases. They are slightly porous and therefore will take on dirt, oil, etc over time. That being said, I still love the fit and feel of this case, and I'll use it for as long as it lasts!

    Sorry but i'm not interested in a case, don't like the bulk. And I already own a Incipio Feather, and I think that makes the phone to big ;)

    gunzmaiet, did you see the link I provided? And it's not the corners that are collecting dirt, it's the whole skin that will become yellowish.

    I've been using Wrapsol and I think its one of the best. I would pick Wrapsol over BSE or IS. I've used all three.

    did you not see how the corners were especially dirty?
    the corners not being properly put on allowed dirt to get in and yellow the skin

    Okey, that link was bad. But I have used two skins, properly installed, I know what to do. And they sit perfect in all corners. And the whole skin is yellow/greyish, evenly. Not just the corners.
    So that's not the problem, leave that now please!

    So what about this Wrapsol skin, sounds interesting!?
    ihonda, could you please post pictures of your skin? Have searched for a long time, all I can find is newly installed, and all of thoose look great ofc.
