    So I'm going to get a WHITE iPhone 3GS and I'm not scared! I was because of this whole crack issue but I'd appreciate some people posting about how much they love their white iPhone or are doing the same switch I'm doing!

    Jack!

    I'm switching from black to white, it's time for a change I think!

    I've had a white M700 for 2 years yet I'm still uncertain about a white iphone! I think the apple logo on the back looks better with a black background. Maybe just me but the front is black and having a white back just looks like it's stuck on the back and not one unit...

    Plus everyone knows it's one for each gender :p

    Going the other way

    I've had a white 3G since launch last year and I'm getting a Black 3G S. I like the slick look of the black. I'll probably lose my mind looking at the fingerprints though. Time will tell.

    Who cares, the majority of owners put a case on it, so you don't even get to see the back of the phone.

    I've had the white from last 3G launch. And I've seen the little cracks all along the pressure points (silent button, volume, headphone jack, power button and where you dock the phone). I'm going with black this time around so the cracks hopefully won't be visible and it will truly feel like I have a brand new phone since the color is different.

    I hear the white iPhone has the power to call down lightning bolts from the sky to annihilate your enemies.

    I'm glad you're not SCARED. But its going to crack- three iPhone 3Gs in my possession, all have cracked.

    Hm, maybe the cracks are caused by your handling?

    White to Black

    White was definitely more clean looking and unique. But I hated that you could see the cracks that formed. Other people I know had the black WITH cracks and weren't very noticeable.

    I've had a white 3G since launch day and, if I do end up getting a 3Gs, I'm definitely sticking with white. Personally, I just think it looks better... and I haven't had any issues with cracks anywhere on the casing... and I don't even keep my phone in a case or anything.

    I have a white 3G, mostly because that's all they had in stock @ Apple. :rolleyes:

    I think it's time for a change, the white's unique, but the black looks classier. Black 32GB for me. Plus I hate cracks.

    Much better chance of getting mugged with the white, because they can tell it's an iPhone from across the street...

    Micheal Jackson made this decision a few years back.

    Personally, im all about the black, looks awesome.
