You Could Have A White iPhone 4 But Do You Have the Guts?
So you want an White iPhone 4, but there are none to be found. You could have a White iPhone 4, but do you have the guts to rip apart your brand new phone? Engadget sure does! They've put together a great set of pictures of their Do It Yourself White iPhone Case. The results are actually incredibly sharp, and looks great.
Engadget got their hands on a white case manufactured from a Chinese production company, which included a front and back piece.
we couldn't wait -- having spent 11 hours on the streets waiting for the iPhone 4, it's only natural to give our precious new toy some extra special care. With the help of iFixit's teardown guide, we decided to take the plunge with our steaming hot Chinese delivery -- a white front cover (with a shiny proximity sensor area above the earpiece), a white back cover (with "XXXXX" marked as the model number, ergo a prototype), and a Retina Display unit. Alas, there weren't any white buttons in stock at the time, but let's pretend this black-and-white combo is the new cool.
I'm interested in seeing how many of the members of the MMi community have already done something similar, using iFixit's teardown guide. Maybe some custom painted cases already? Let me know, we'd love to feature someone's DIY guide for their own design/color.

Changed mine to white was the first thing I did when I brought my iPhone 4 home.

As soon as parts are easily available I'm changing just the back of mine to white. I wanted white but the white front looks fugly. So when you can get parts I'll have a black front and a white back like I've always had.

imho - white ones remind me of a "flocked" Christmas tree - you know, when you spray fake snow on a tree. This looks like a flocked iphone. And, I know that is just opening the door for comments...
