    Just wondering as to why the iPhone 4 black to white conversion thread has been edited.? Not only has it been edited, all posts from iphonefixed have been removed including details, prices, and photos that they posted to help member in said thread who were looking at carrying out the conversion, myself included.

    I have been in touch with iphonefixed.co.uk, they are located in Wales/UK, and seem more than friendly, and helpful, and I don't understand why the bomb edit?

    There were two other companies listed in this thread too, which were unreliable, maybe a moderator over reacted, and deleted iphonefixed posts thinking this guy was unreliable too? The names are very simiar I agree, but iPhoneFixed.co.uk is genuine from everything we can tell, even member did background checks, and VAT number checks, and all was fine for this guy, but not the others.

    I would has at a guess that the Mods thought it was deemed as Commercial Advertising.

    That would be a shame, because Im sure Im not alone in wanting my white iPhone seeing as apple cancelled it.

    Thanks for the reply.
