    Default iPhone 4 black>white conversion HELP!
    I am meeting with a guy tomorrow to convert my black iPhone 4 to white. He says they are "OEM quality" and all that stuff. He sent me a few pictures which are here:





    He charges $125 for everything. Now, are there different "qualitys" of the kit i should know or are they all the same? He claims like oem and stuff but im scared of a few things. I REALLY want my phone white but dont want my screen to short out a week later since i do need a whole new screen and all, correct?

    I read camera pics sometimes arent as clear, prox sensor issues are a common issue with conversions. Should I be worried or do the swaps turn out like oem?

    EDIT: Check this out.

    I want this.

    OEM iPhone 4 4G LCD Screen Display Digitizer Assembly | eBay UK

    With the black bar but this is from the UK and doesn't have the US dollars. where can I purchase the full kit like this!?

    I know this isn't helpful, but have you ever wondered if there are any white iPhone 4 owners that are looking to convert it to black? The premise is just as silly either way, I think.

    Why is there a need for a new LCD when converting from black to white?

    All Chinese suppliers claim to have OEM quality replacement screens but it is questionable at best. Everything is made in China including Apple parts so I would not worry about this. The important thing to consider with this type of repair is to make sure that the proximity sensor works when it is done. Place a call to make sure that the screen shuts of when you place it to your ear. Make sure all portions of the screen respond to touch and that there are no dead pixels on the LCD.

    This is the best information so far. I've not had any problems with any of the color kits in regards to the LCD and digitizer. The only thing I would add to the above comment is to look at the parts BEFORE he installs them. If there are any visual defects that you can't live with then don't have it done. Other things to check; Make sure the rubber around the edge of the screen sits on the frame of the phone all the way around so there are no gaps. Make sure he has the mesh covering the earhole pre-installed. And definitely the proximity sensor.
