    this group of customers are the only ones that this will become an issue for... If you've waited the better part of a year to get a white iPhone, why ae you covering it?

    Damn, Poseidon ban spamsalad and the other idiots who like to b1tch about MMIs news articles. If they want to b1tch the can go to gawker or Mac rumors. I think modmyi stays on top of the news that's relevant to our community.

    So people wait for the white iPhone, then freak out when they can't stick it in an Otter case thus covering up the white parts of the phone?

    I can not get the case to fit right after I installed ZAGG film on my iPhone4, had to peel it off for the bumper to fit on my iPhone4 which is kind of expensive thing to waste. Just saying.

    The most important thing to take from this is that iPhone 4 lives up to its slogan "This changes everything. Again."

    i think its funny that people don't think .2mm will make a difference. Yeah, maybe for a loose fitting, silicone, stretchable case it wont matter...but for a tight fitting case, .2mm will make a huge difference. As people have already stated, a simple zagg skin at .01mm causes problems with cases. If .01mm already gives problems with some cases, .2mm will make those cases unusable.

    True... An InvisibleShield with an Otterbox Defender is a disaster (I own both, and I had to remove the shield), I can only imagine how hard it would be to fit a Defender on a white iPhone4.

    I for one won't be getting a white iPhone4...and I'm kinda sick of all these "white-woes" in every Apple-related news sites. I know all of this is important for people who wanted/want/got/will get one, but this is just silly now.

    After being a purchaser of only white iPhones(when available, 3G, and 3GS) I've now decided that there is less hassle with a black one since I don't have to wait forever and the resale value isn't much higher for the white ones anyway.

    Being as my ONLY choice of case that I've ever used is the Incase Slider(color: white) and since that covers up 90% of the white on the phone, I'm no longer going to be buying/waiting for white iphones as I've seen the error of my ways.

    That being said...regarding the white iphone release and the hordes of people that will flock to buy what is essentially now obsolete technology, I say, (in best Cartman voice) nah nah nah nah nah!!

    Default +1 MMi
    I, for one, love this forum and appreciate these writers. This is the only site I go to for Apple related news.

    When talking with my friends I enjoy having FACTS like this and knowing the differences between all the different models no matter how small or large the difference might be.

    Kind of like this story, White iPhone? I'll Take Clear Thank You!, where I found out about the clear back. I bought one of these clear backs today (not from iFixIt because its plastic http://www.micgadget.com). I am sure other news forums posted this before MMi, but I feel they have a great filter on the material I like to read about.

    +1 to MMi writers, THANK YOU.

    fyi, my color swaps i do for people (white, pink, green, gold, etc) actually make your phone slightly thinner
    i didnt notice it until someone i did one for told me and i tested it.. pretty cool i think... the bigger thing though, isn't

    I don't get why anyone on a forum/xbox live/etc. gets all giddy and excited and tries to hit on a girl on a forum when there are plenty of opportunities in real life and usually the ones IRL are better looking.

    To keep this on topic, I can't stand silicone covers. Like someone mentioned earlier, nothing is more frustrating than trying to do the finagle the phone out of the pocket without actually putting your hand in the pocket for what ever reason. I use the work the phone up out of the pocket with the fingers technique. Then try doing that with a silicone cover on it. Plus they collect lots of lint and tend to wear out and tear.

    I would make an exception for a flexible cover and get one of those TPU covers. Thermoplastic polyurethane I believe. Those have just the right amount of traction to keep from slipping out of your hand, are flexible, protect, and are still slick enough to retrieve from a pocket using the aforementioned technique.
