How to choose the best quality color mod parts for your iPhone 4

How to choose the best quality color mod parts for your iPhone 4

Just because Apple never made colored iPhone parts doesn't mean you can't find good ones if you know what you're looking for.

If you have an iPhone 4 and you want to swap out the standard Apple black or white backplate for something more colorful -- like red or blue -- it can be a challenge to find the best, high quality parts. Backplate swaps especially are an easy DIY project, but you want to pay careful attention to the supplier, the materials they're using, the specific model of iPhone 4 you're ordering for (AT&T/GSM is different than Verizon/Sprint/CDMA), and that you have all the tools you need for the job.

When you're done, or anytime thereafter, tap the plate to get your pick and watch Dine-o-Matic spin up it's FTL (food type locator) and jumps you right to a random selection. Then you can call to make a reservation, get directions, or just grab your wallet and head out to eat. That's it. That's all. You're good to go.
