    Default Question for an iPhone case
    Does anybody know of an iPhone case for the 2g (16GB) that can make it look like a 3g? I really like the 3g in black, but I have the 2nd generation iPhone. Soo...that being said, anybody know of this?

    So basically, what I am looking for, is a shiny black case with the apple logo lol

    Pssh...when I tried, I ripped my hands apart with the tools, broke one of them, and busted the antenna cover. It's being held together with SCOTCH tape until the new cover comes. I'll never try to do THAT again.

    My back case on my new iPhone has a little nick at the top. Any suggestions on how to fix that?

    One1...that's pretty freakin sweet. Good job man. What grit did you use to sand it down?
