ColorWare is also only offering the 64GB GSM version of the device, and it “will not work with Verizon or Sprint.”
I had a ColorWare BlackBerry Bold 9000 smartphone a few years back, and it looked great. But I honestly can’t fathom paying double for an already expensive iPhone just for some custom colors. (ColorWare sold the BlackBerry parts separately, and I installed them myself, which reduced the cost significantly. This option is not available for the iPhone 5.) Then again, I do not have money to burn—and I don’t want you to know it.
