So even with heavy use, my phones that i bought brand new still look brand new, and anything i'd buy used later, has to be in fairly decent condition. Just my high standards
So i decided on a white one, based on the pictures and the "candy shell" comment, knowing that the shell is solid white plastic and not painted.
But when you said "candy shell", that really set something off in my mind... i just thought, what the hell, why not? While my clothes are all neutral colors, i might just go with an obnoxiously bright color for a case and satisfy a leftover childhood fascination with everything purple
Who cares what anyone thinks, i'll have my "Gumball Veer"..
White on the inside, glossy purple on the outside...
This is the case i have in mind, although i'd have to also wrap it in clear film due to its matte finish:
HP VEER RUBBER CASE PURPLE 05, Cell Phone Accessories, iPhone, Android, cases at Metro Phones Company
And a flat USB cord to go with it:
PURPLE FLAT MICRO USB DATA CABLE LEAD CHARGER for HP Veer 4G | eBay
Haters can hate, i don't care
* i use that term loosely, and if anyone from this forum needed to use my phone if a couple of minutes, they'd be welcome. However, i do go out of my way to make sure everything looks and works like the day i bought it. But i'm nowhere near what my grandpa was/is like about his cars. He could be quite nasty about it if anyone touched any part of the car besides door handles.
P.S. I might as well pick up an extra touchstone while they are cheap, and re-spray it white ..That would have to be a thick coat of paint, but i don't really care
