    I really wanted to go with the white iPhone this time around since I had a black 3G and 3GS, but I think the white front makes the phone look terrible.

    So I was wondering, how many of you would like a white back for your iPhone? According to iFixit, changing the back is "trivial" since it only involves removing the two screws on the bottom of the phone.

    Me, have wanted this since I first saw the phone... the white front looks funky to me, but the white back is the shizzle :) AS soon as the OEM part is available from my source, I will put the white back on.

    Yeah, I read that story on engadget, but it seems they were missing some parts on the back cover that they purchased.

    Once I find the OEM part for under $100 I will make a white iPhone for myself. But 200+ for each front and back is crazy.

    This is exactly what I've been waiting on. Does anyone have a reliable source for the OEM parts? I've gotten burned from ordering from some of the ebay and other places with a connection to factories in China

    Im looking for just the white backplate also. I would love to keep the black front but have the white back.

    I was gutted when I found out that it was not a black front/white back combination :(
