    I had my black g1 for 3 1/2 weeks. And its to late for me to take it back. When I went to get my phone I wanted the white g1 and no one had them. Now all the stores have them and I can't trade mine in. My g1 is in perfect condition so if there's anybody out there that have a white g1 and want a black one I would be willing to trade with you. You can hit me up at elijah195@gmail.com ps I'll trade for the brown one to. May even throw in 50 bucks to anyone that calls soon

    Be warned that the white and bronze g1 users have noted that the backlight for the keyboard makes it pretty difficult to use the keyboard in daylight. They can't read the keys with the light on unless it's a dark room or at night.

    I would stick with black for the key color issue. Wish I had chosen that one.

    you can get an app on the market called dark keys which sorts it out easy.
    white g1 is much nicer than the black one in the uk

    I started off with the white G1 (UK) and sent it back for the black model because of the key problem. After getting the black model I felt it looked better and had a certain elegance that the white did not have.

    Saying that, I have heard of people getting black keys from ebay and replacing the white ones by hand. Im glad I got the black

    My wife insisted on buying the white one, even though I told her about the keyboard issues. She called T-mo to exchange it the very next day.

    I can speak from experience that it is almost impossible to see the keys in a lighted room.
