    I am kind of annoyed that I was hoping they fixed the yellowish tint to the iPhone 4 in white, but it seems that the 4S has the same discoloration.

    I really just wish they would get the 4S to look like it does on apple.com, I had 3G and 3GS in White, but they can not seem to get it as white with the 4 and 4S, so I think I am going to stick with Black and return my White one, I was hoping it really looked good but it doesn't to me

    Same here, don't think I ever saw the white iPhone a different color before.

    My iPhone is white - I think maybe whatever light you're viewing it under is messing up your view? Some bulbs have a yellow tint, for example, mine looks yellow right now.

    Dunno about the iPhone, but I remember my old white iPod always getting yellowish with time. That's why I don't buy white iPhones anymore. Maybe it's because my hands are always sweaty.

    Exactly.

    Introducing the all new iPhone 4S Active Edition. It's already sweat stained to blend right in with your locker room environment.

    I kind of agree with the OP. Yes the phone is white but on the website it looks really white. It looks gorgeous. Live and in living color it's more like eggshell like someone else here said. I'd feel like a doosh trying to exchange it though LOL!! Plus they probably wouldn't cross ship it unless anyone knows otherwise.
