    They'll never do this. They would not be able to prevent aftermarket companies from making different backs, which would change the look/feel of the phone. Apple hates customization. They're ok with "bumpers" or cases, but with a replaceable back-panel, they'd lose revenue from people who have to come in for repairs on them.

    There's already after market back panels for the iPhone 4.... I have an aluminum light green back panel for my iPhone 4 and it looks pretty nice and I got my girl friend a hot pink back panel for her iPhone 4.... There's a few colors which you can find on eBay. And it's easy to replace so if anything ever happens to the phone just put the original part back on and take it back to apple and they'll never know.

    The reason apple doesn't have removable backs and batteries is so they can pack a better battery into a smaller space because they don't have to make it "user replaceable", even though many of us have to know-how and could do it anyway.

    I knew someone was going to say something like this.

    It's not an "accepted" product. Technically, you void the warranty by doing this. You don't void the warranty on a BB by replacing the battery cover.

    Also, those companies are committing a crime. By putting the Apple logo on their product, they can be sued by Apple.

    And I like a more durable phone with a battery better than pretty much every other phone.
