    I know pre-orders wouldn't allow for people to buy them... but I heard G1 Day you can get the White G1's at the T-Mobile Stores____Is this True :thinking:

    My work phone is a white xv6900 and the finish is really glossy so I don't really see it getting dirty or anything. Plus I keep the phone in it's little HTC pouch.

    I'm sure the phone wouldn't turn a really noticable color for most normal usage. I know that it wouldn't if you washed it once a week or so. With my tech, I usually give it a good washdown and shine it up a few times a week just to keep it in good shape and also so I can notice any dings or whatnot so I can be sure to take better care of it.

    Yeah, I do! I can't find a link, but basically, all you gotta do is mask the buttons/screen with blue painting tape, and then go to Lowe's and buy some spray paint (preferably White). Then give it a good shake, and spray away.


    Let it dry.


    Wait an hour.

    and VOILA! WHITE G1. I just pimped your G1 dawg, what you got to say?

    Phantom-
    The funny part about that is that (assuming you did a decent job) i'd probably buy it off you. Maybe there are business opportunities we could discuss sometime? :)

    I got the Black one... its my favorite of the 3 but color is all a matter of taste. It'll be interesting to see the differences of wear and tear after the white ones have been around for awhile.

    In all the pics/vids I've seen the white one seems to look a little bit off-whitish and I didn't want to give off that "my phone has been sitting in the sun for a few days" look.

    We'll see.
