It is metal

I always assumed my iPod was metal as it responded as if it were magnetic, but the local engraver gave me a hard time saying that he was going to charge more, and wanted me to waive any damage he might cause by putting my name and number on my iPod.

Am I going to have this problem with my iPhone?
Your iPhone will be made out of the same material as the iPods, aluminum. I've engraved over a thousand iPods! They engrave very nicely, but they are made of a very dense aluminum on the back so most engravings will just barely scratch the surface. I personally make several passes with a spinning diamond tipped engraver which gives a brilliant look to the surface. Much better look than the laser etching. And just so you know, no engraving will void your warranty as long as they don't damage the device which is not likely.
The reason your engraver should be qweezy about the iPhone is that if he misspells somthing he has to buy you a new $1,00 iPhone and good luck finding one. And so because of the risk and nerves it will take to engrave these iPhones he honestly should charge more. I am charging $20 for most iPods and $50 for iPhone.
If he is nervous, move on. Find an experienced confident engraver. My riskiest job was an $86,600 Cartier watch. Good luck finding another one of those also!
If you happen to be in Atlanta I'll engrave it for you. Check out examples of my work at iEngrave.net

New here and just wanted to say hi. Been frequenting the site for awhile, but I figured it's about time I join in the conversation and witty banter on here. Looks like there are a couple people from Knoxville on here, but I haven't seen any from Nashville.
Welcome...I'm in Franklin. You going for an iPhone friday?

hello from springfield missouri

I have been reading this site for a month now and getting more and more excited! Cant wait for Friday! I am wondering how busy the local ATT stores will be, we don't have Apple stores here in Springfield. I haven't heard a thing locally until Monday on a radio station the DJ was talking about the iPhone and how he was going to get one....guess i will have to wait and see.:sick:

Hello everyone, just wanted to say hello from Glen Burnie Maryland! (about 15 minutes outside Baltimore... far enough away from the idiocy)

Been looking forward to the iPhone for awhile now, been an avid iPod user for years... of course an all in one unit was practically a give for me!

Pleasure to stop lurking and start posting!

I'm from Nashville too!

Hey I'm new here and I too am from Nashville! I can't wait until Friday to get an iPhone! I was really dreading the price of the plans and I had not been 100 percent committed to getting the phone. After the plans came out on Tuesday though, my mind was made up! I can't decide on whether to go to the Apple Store at Green Hills or if I should go to the Cingular store in Mt. Juliet close to where I live. hmmm..... decisions decisions.... I wonder how many each store will get too?

Welcome to the site. I plan on holding onto my iPhone for dear life. No drops here.

FYI: Please read the forum rules.

iPhone will be tethered to me so Im not worried about drops. Worst case scenario it just hangs then I grab it.

Tethering, that's a good idea, I see a lot of people sitting on them, I wonder how hefty they are?

Ooh. Thanks for the heads up! I am actually closer to the Chandler/Gilbert Location, so I will be heading there with a friend. But sincerely, thank you. I wish you luck in getting one.

I'm still hoping I get a free one from this website, hehe! :p

I'm currently waiting for ifixit.com to disassemble the iPhone and hopefully I will have hi-capacity batteries for it soon and screens to follow!

Looking forward to some fun times in this forum as the iPhone era begins. Waited 2.5 hours for my 8GB and ended up getting the last 8gb! :cool:

Hi, here's an iPhone fan from Indonesia, I'm really happy to find a great community here. Not sure when the iPhone will arrive here, but I'd love to learn more and more about this wonderful gadget.

See you all in the other posts :laugh2:

Hello from Central Texas. I ,like many ,thought about waiting, especially reading the reviews posted all over the internet. But being the Mac die-hard I am, I just did it. I am so glad to have found this forum. Like many have said, yes there will be a new one out. Hopefully Mr. Steve will support the die-hard buyers and work an upgrade deal with us because we supported the item when it was born. I ordered mine online so I do have to wait for 2-4 weeks. I am okay with that.

Anyhow, glad to be here and hope to learn more from all of you.
