    What will stop the white iphone 4 from turning yellow and getting discolored from normal usage heat and being exposed to sunlight?

    Because there is glass?

    I have owned all iPhone designs and the iPhone 4 build quality is absolutely incredible. So don't worry too much about problems like discoloration.

    I just never have seen a yellowed 3Gs. Dirty ones, yes, but not a yellowed one.

    Seeing as the paint is under the glass, it won't yellow

    Exactly. Glass is different than white plastic.

    If the glass has UV protection (and all glass does protect against UV to some extent), I don't see why it would ever yellow unless it sat out in unprotected sunlight for months to years on end.

    i've had a white 3G and 3GS and neither have turned yellow...

    so i guess the thing stopping the white iphone 4 from turning yellow is something called common sense?

    glass doesnt turn yellow with age, so as long as you dont handle your phone after you've dipped your hand in a can of yellow paint, i can almost guarantee you wont see any "yellowing"

    Then what's holding up the white iPhone 4? Jobs and Ives couldn't agree on the type of white color?
