    Can white iphone users post their experience? I'm a little nervous about getting the white iPhone after the problems I read. Proximity issues, yellow screens, otterbox cases not working? Thanks

    I have a white iPhone 4 and have not had any issues, the at&t rep told me about the otterbox cases not working properly which I am okay with because those cases make the phone huge.

    Proximity sensor is better than the black. No issues for me. Otterbox Defenders wont work due to the white i4 .02mm thicker. But whats the point of a white i4 if it totally covered with a defender?

    No proximity sensor issues. To my surprise, my Otterbox Defender fit just fine.

    mine may if I was to sqeeze it together. Not forcing it. Didnt want to snap together. But I dont mind as the Defender would just hide the phone anyways. I gave mine to my bro n law

    I agree, why put a black otterbox on top of a white iPhone?

    I thought I'd have a struggle. I didn't even have to squeeze. I thought for sure
    I'd have a problem. The case I have is more like a first batch. I remember buying
    it maybe about a month or so after it was released on Ebay. I think it varies.
    When did you get yours?

    I just use it as an iPod sometimes when working out at the gym. Just some
    good protection. Otherwise, I don't even use a case.

    I understand, it just takes so much away from the looks of the white one.

    I felt the same way with my black one, too. No case is just better.

    Better than the black really? Yeah good point, I just wasn't clear on what the issue with the Otterbox cases really were. I assumed proximity sensor, not the 2mm difference.

    No proximity sensor issues. To my surprise, my Otterbox Defender fit just fine.
    Thanks for confirming!!

    Thanks. I guess people have fussed so much over it, I figured I'd ask. Getting it today. So excited!!! Just wish AT&T offered unlimited data. Oh well.

    The at&t reps told me to stay away from the otterbox with the white iPhone, is your white iPhone modded or originally white?

    Well I got the iPhone today but not the white ): but only because AT&T was out of the white 32GB so hopefully tomorrow they'll have it. Luckily, I won't have to pay a restocking fee since they were out. After having the black for a day, I definitely want the white.

    proximity sensor works fine
    screen is clean looking

    It's just as nice as my last iPhone, the black 3GS- great build quality. Just get the white one if you want it, no worries
