    So I wanted to stand out a little more and I was at the mall that has a place that mods your iPhone and replaces the front glass and back. I went with red. ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1369605769.691483.jpg ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1369605780.130267.jpg

    Looks nice, but it'd better if the buttons and sim tray were red too.

    They offered but I liked the black highlights. Makes it standout.

    Side buttons are ok but the home button doesn't look good to me, but again, your phone, your choice, if it looks good to you, that's all that matters.

    billnye97 Pretty cool. What did they charge for that? I am assuming they give you your old screen and back if you ever want to switch back?

    That is nice. Wish Apple would just offer the iPhone in different colors, but I'm sure they won't...

    Well, there is a lot of Internet rumours doing rounds that Apple is planning to introduce new colours.

    It was $250 for both the front and back with trading in my original front screen. They did give me the back when they were done.

    Just because there are rumors doesn't mean it will happen. There have been rumors about different colors for years but nothing yet.

    Looks nice! Congrats. I myself really like the contrast between the SIM tray and the rest of the side!

    First let me say the phone looks good. I wouldn't mind having a pink one. Will this cancel out the warranty with Apple? If so I hope you don't have any problems with your iPhone. If you still had your old front & back at least you could have had it switched back before taking it to the Apple store.

    They're mentioned having trade in the front screen. And I can be 99% sure this does void the warranty as its not an OEM replacement. Ahh the price you pay for customization ;)

    Voiding the warranty was something I didn't even think about. Hope nothing bad happens to your phone. To the OP, why did you have to trade in your screen? Do they just color traded in OEM screens?

    It does void the warranty, however, they offer a 90 day defect guarantee. I also bought the phone at launch and didn't purchase AppleCare so I was comfortable with it. I also watched the guy work on it so I wasn't sending it off. You didn't have to trade in your screen they just give you money off the total price. They also fix broken screens so I assume the trade ins might be used for that? The screen was brand new so they don't color them. The company is icolor workshop if you look on Facebook. They have a few stores.

    The phone looks great with the buttons left black as accents. A little expensive for my tastes but like Liberated said if you are happy with it that is all that matters. Enjoy!
