    Well I'd be surprised if the black one wasn't more popular since it's the only one you can get :S

    Oh well, I have always had Black iphones besides the 1st Gen. Really had my eyes set on buying a White iPhone 4. For now I guess I will have to buy used 3gs for 200 bucks to use with AT&Ts $60 Unlimited Talk Text until iPhone 5 comes

    But something is not adding up HNB. I am not one to be a conspiracy theorist but sadly something is fishy.

    So the white iPhone we see on the website and marketing from Apple is photoshopped? If Apple is the sensible company we know they are then why would they put something out in advertising and promotion that they would find difficult to make at the same pace as its black counterpart? You would figure they made at least one already.

    We had 3 million black iPhones sold in 3 weeks. We would have to speculate on how many white iPhones Apple would want to manufacture before they started shipping them but if I went public during a damage control session and said "white iPhone at the end of the month" I would make damn sure I would be shipping at the end of the month whatever white iPhones I did have in stock. It makes you question the credibility of Apple on a whole during the whole public announcement and you ask "what else did Apple lie about?".

    It is my theory that many things went wrong for Apple when that iPhone got lost in a bar. I think the product was just not ready yet and was rushed to market. The iPhone was probably supposed to debut in August/September/October/November but things changed when we all saw it too early. Maybe they planned to package Bumpers with the phone but that went out the window as well due to insufficient quantity at time of sale.

    It is all quite strange.

    Why do you think it was 'probably supposed to debut in August/September/October/November' when every other generation of iphone was released in June or July?

    Just wild speculation. If it was supposed to come out in July why are they so far behind on production for the white?

    I'll just wait for next years iPhone now. I'm sure facetime will be a lot better and all these antenna and sensor issues will be fixed. it's not the end of the world people jeez. I Iove my iPhone just as much as anyone but there's more important things to worry about.

    By the time the iPhone 4 white comes out, it'll be about half a year until the 5th gen iPhone, there is really no point in selling the white iPhone 4 now.
    This is by far Apple's worst iPhone yet it's the best

    These websites put this OEM stamp on it so you will spend $200 on it. And as for the EBay item, ask them where they got an original equipment manufacturer part for a piece of equipment that doesn't exsist yet.

    Chances are they are shoty attempts at a replica. Not interested.

    I heard if you give your white iPhone the death grip it eventually turns purple before the bars go to 0 and the phone dies

    im so glad i didnt jump to buy the iphone. i was going to buy it around the start of university, but apple has just been a constant problem lately. not only does their carrier suck, but now their products are failing horribly. even though i was going to go for a black iphone, im just pissed now.

    step your game up apple!
