    Ok heres the deal I really want an iphone. But im on Verizon.
    Check:Verizon is getting the Iphone in like 15 days.

    I want a 32gb one.
    Check: Apple makes them.

    I want a WHITE Iphone 4.
    Um...

    So ive been doing some searching.

    This list goes from cheapest and easiest to most compicated.

    Option 1.
    Spray paint.
    Not a good idea.

    Option 2.
    Replicase.
    Its a case that looks just like the back of the IPhone. Might work for a little bit.

    Option 3.

    These are replacement cases. This looks like the route i might go. They come in all colors, but you have to open up your iphone which definetly voids the warranty.

    Option 4.
    This place http://www.sw-box.com/wholesale-Iphone-4-R...ment-Parts.html Sells them for about 35$ and on up.

    Option 5.
    Invade Steve Jobs's house and demand he sell me a white Iphone 4. I know they exist.

    Is it worth tearing apart my brand new iphone 4?

    EDIT:Shoot. I just found a Tear Down guide.

    That does NOT look like fun.

    Most of the cases won't fit a Verizon iPhone. They're all for the AT&T model which is going to have a lot of minor hardware differences. The silence switch has moved for one, who know's what else there is on the inside.
