    Hi everyone. My first iphone was the 3G is BLACK. I am planning on getting the 3GS phone in WHITE, but I am concerned about keeping it looking clean.

    Now, for those of you that have a white iphone, would you get white again? If no...why not? Thanks.

    I'm on my second white (first was 3G) and I will continue to get white.

    I will always buy a white iPhone as long as Apple continues to sell them.

    I get so many. "Is that a white iPhone?" its not even funny

    Thanks for the replies. So far, I guess white-iphone users really like their choice of white. Anyone switching to a black colored iphone? I guess I am trying to find reasons for why I should not get a white iphone.:D

    I will always get a white one, or a dark blue one if they ever have it. I don't know where people are hearing that the white get dirty. Mine is still as as the new ones in the store. Granted, I wipe mine down every morning to get the fingerprints and whatever off, but that should not make a difference.

    My white 3GS is awesome, but I would trade it in a heartbeat for a dark blue one! If they ever come out with a matte black finish I might consider that over a white one too!

    Had a white 3G & a white 3GS, but switched to the 3GS Black 32GB after a couple of issues and will probably go to white again when the 4G comes out next year. Does the white come in a KEVLAR package?....:eek::eek::eek:

    I love my white 3G, I would probably get white again but might consider switching just for the sake of having something different. Although, the reason I got it in the first place is because it's the classic Apple color and figured most people would have black. BTW, I've had a really easy time keeping it clean.

    Thanks. I will probably end up getting a white one then. BTW, are you using a protective covering over your phone like the IS for Zagg or Bodyguardz?

    Def. Not... The only reason why I got it was b/c they were out of the Black 16GB on Day 1 of 3G.

    I had white 16gb 3g. I got a black 3gs this time. Why?

    1) cracks
    2) cracks
    3) it was in a case so it didnt matter
    4) its easier to sell an iphone with out cracks
    5) cracks
    6) the cracks made it look like sh*t and there is no way to stop them. Applecare will exchange 1 time for cosmetic blems. Black probably happens too but you cant see them.


    (dirty was never an issue)

    Black iPhones crack just as much as white.

    I originally used the IS but stopped because the corners started to peel off. Now I have an incase that I sometimes use, but usually I just have it unprotected.

    I agree with a lot of people here, as long as Apple has a white iPhone available, that's the one I'm buying. A blue or red one would be awesome as well if they started doing colors. Also, if they were able to use aluminum again without hindering signal reception, that would be awesome since pretty much everything else they are producing is aluminum.
