    I thought Steve said the white iPhones "would be available at the end of the month." I didn't hear an exact date. You will probably be able to order them at the end of the month and they'll ship in August. My guess.

    MacRumors reported yesterday that the problem is with the paint mixture... it doesn't state if this is an additional delay beyond what Jobs reported in his antennagate press conference or if this is simply an explanation of why the white iPhones were delayed at all. It looks like it may just be an explanation for the original delay, but one never knows for sure, unless Jobs and company specifically tells us.

    For those of you waiting for the white iPhone, I hope it's NOT an additional delay.

    I prefer the white because i like the way it looks in the case a black bumper around a white iphone is hot, i love incase sliders so Im also hoping the sliders come out around the time the white version of the phone comes out

    For those of us with black phones that got them on release day, is today or tomorrow the last day you can return them? I was thinking about trading my black in for a white, but if the white doesn't come out before the 30 days... ugh... what to do...

    That depends on where you got it: if from Apple, you have 30 days from the date that you received it. If from AT&T, it depends on who you talk to, and then you can't depend on what they tell you, and they may not give you the upgrade price on the replacement, and they might refuse to let you keep your unlimited plan after assuring you that you could. Sorry, I'm a little bitter right now.

    If you exchange the black iPhone for a white one, you can keep your unlimited data plan. If you return the iPhone at AT&T and then go try to buy the replacement at the Apple Store, you have lost your unlimited data plan for good.

    I'd like to exchange my black for a white before the 30 days, but how can I do that when my 30 days is over either tomorrow or the next day, but the white phone doesn't come out till next week?

    I think this is all part of some master plan by Apple and ATT to try to get more users off the unlimited data plan!!! Bastards!!!

    I'm pretty sure Apple didn't release the white one for this very reason. They knew people would try and return their black one for the white. That would have been too much hassle. You should have known better, if you wanted the white that bad you should have just waited and let someone else that WANTED the black one get it.

    A friend of mine bought an iPhone 4 at the Chicago store yesterday and was told she could not exchange it for a white one when they come in. She was told she'd have to return the black within 30 days and then buy white if that's what she wanted to have. Same end result but a little more convoluted than a straight exchange.

    My buddy returned his 4 to Best Buy yesterday in hopes of picking up a White 4. He called AT&T to confirm if he will still be eligible for an upgrade when he returns his phone. They told him within 72 hours of returning the phone, his account will show eligibility for upgrade. Within 12 hours of returning the iPhone 4 his account was back to upgrade status.
