How easy is it to change the iPhone 4 housing?
I'm a little bit "bored" of the standard black housing.

Atleast a 7


For a 3GS/3G I would think if it's similarly difficult.

If you wan't to replace the front as well then your going to have to take apart the whole phone. If you just want to do the back then it's just those two screws on the bottom of the phone.

I'd say 9/10 just because you need to make sure you know where each screw goes and which part comes first.

Plus you'd void your warranty, I wouldn't recommend it you might aswell get someone to do it for you or sell your black iPhone and get a white one..

Technically there's no indicator that shows the iPhone has been opened, unless you some how stripped the bottom screws or left evidence of it being opened (like forgetting to put a screw in the phone after opening it)

That's the risk your going to take if you want to convert your iPhone to the white one..

But apple will void your warranty for sure if they do see anything fishy, just hope if anything goes wrong with the phone they don't open it. (which I haven't seen them do with the iPhone 4, since I fully dropped my first iPhone 4 in a cup of water and the home button stopped working they gave me a new one within 3 minutes without opening it lol)
