    Default My New Back glass
    So, having the white iPhone got boring after a couple months so I had to take it a step farther, so here's the end results. What do you guys think ? The apple logo and lettering is metallic like it's supposed to be, but with the lighting it looks black.

    Excellent result. Any tips on process? Any missteps to avoid? Even an Apple Genius can see your water stickers are nice and white.

    Thanks for showing,

    Brad

    Not really, it's pretty easy. Just take out the screws on the bottom, pop off the old glass, pop on the new and put the screws back in. Took about a minute to do. I was just sure to not touch anything on the inside of the phone.

    Metal ones make you lose service. I love the white clear back tho man. Looks nice. I got a black clear back and I've been debating doing the stock white conversion.... Can't decide tho...

    This from experience using a metal back?

    I've got the oem white conversion on the front , I still have the oem back, but took it off for the clear one. I get bored and swap my phone around alot. Going with the white kit was the best decision I ever made, besides jailbreaking. I'd do it all over again.

    Good to know, i'll try it anyways since it is a quick and cheap thing to try, easily reversible too. Thanks for the info.

    Just bc it's so rare. Anywhere I go, if someone who knows anything about the iPhone 4 sees it, either they want to talk to me about it, or I hear them say to whoever they're with "look he's got the white iPhone". It's pretty much the equivalent of having a pet unicorn ha ha
