    I am buying a new iPhone 3GS tonight. I have had a black 3G and really liked it but was going to go with the white this time. Does anyone know how the white iphone looks with an invisible shield or a bodyguardz protector on it? When I peeled the bodyguardz off my black phone the plastic looked yellow.

    Can the bodyguardz make the white iPhone look yellow?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    They are the same iPhone inside, but the white hides scratches whereas the black looks sleeker.
    Be warned that the white iPhone is a bit hard to get at the moment.

    iPhone discoloration is rare and over-exaggerated. Don't worry about it. Reports are also that discoloration comes off with a bit of rubbing alcohol without hurting the phone.

    Not worrked about phone changing color...

    Just to clarify, I'm not worried about the phone itself changing color. I'm just wondering if a Bodyguardz, or invisible shield will make the phone 'look' yellowish.

    If it doesn't have a tint to it, it shouldn't.

    I decided to get the invisible shield front only to go with my incase

    the invisible shield is clear so I don't see that putting a yellow tint on phone.

    I have a white 3GS with a Zagg Invisible Sheild (full-body). Doesn't look yellowish at all.
