    Decisions, Decisions. The black is sleek looking but white is different for some reason. I'm thinking black since I have a black macbook and a black external hard drive! lol

    I've a had a black iphone for a year now and I like it--but I think next time I'll go white. They strike me as being more unusual--I don't see so many of them and I think they look great. :)

    I had the white on my 3G, and got a black 3GS this time with no regrets. I LOVE the black, I ended up getting sick of the white after a while.. probably because of all the cracking issues involved with it :(

    They should have changeable shells for any color.

    Probably go with black. lol

    had white 3G. got black 3GS. i liked having the white but always found myself wanting the black for some reason. seems sleeker. also, it really drove me crazy that the back was white but the front of the phone was black. i might just be OCD, but it didn't look right to me. and even when i put a skin on the front to make it look right, that didn't work because the screen looks better w/ black around it than bright white. so, black for me.

    Those problems still exist, and exist with both white and black iPhones...only difference is it takes a trained eye and an LED light to find them..:mad:

    Get white you will not regret it.

    First of all in the sun the black looks like a really deep blue/purple and on top of that the black shows fingerprints and crap so badly.

    The white is so sleek looking. With the chrome around it and the apple sign/writing it reminds me of a nice white sports car with chrome wheels.

    It is so much better.

    People like you are ridiculous.

    I assume you never bought the original iPods or anything because they were white and "feminine" yeah? I also suppose you have no white clothes because then you would just look like a trans hooker on the streets.

    Yeah white is such a feminine color. No wonder Michael Jackson made the switch.

    I love my white. It seems like everyone has a black, and I just think the white is damn sexy.

    I had a white 3G, and now a white 3GS, both times due to the black being out of stock. I pre-ordered a black, but UPS "lost" it. I guess having a black one is not in the cards for me.

    I find the rounded white with the chrome border very girly, but I don't care because it goes in a case anyway. I actually like the look of the white button cutouts when in a black case.

    Neither looks as good as the original iPhone's aluminum.

    White iPods had hard edges and no border, so they seemed less feminine to me.
