Change the color of your iPod

Good news for all you people that want something new for your iPod. Now you can change the color by going to They offer many different colors. Especially since it’s almost Christmas now you can give that special someone something they’ll always remember. They can do it with the new 10, 20, and 40GB iPods. I think they can do the docks as well. Im not sure, but you can find out yourself.

Interesting in concept, but I don’t know if it’s worth the $65 tacked on..maybe $20.  I think I’ll stick with my “frogger” iSkin.

the price is WAY beyond acceptable, especially for what you get.

GOOD custom painting is a labor-intensive, expensive process.  This is a bargain when you look at the amount of work involved.

Are these units still covered under the Apple warranty?
They have been altered….......might be a tough sell to get warranty work!

Actually the ipod will still be covered under the apple care warranty, since they do not open up the ipod to paint it.  Review at TechTV:,24330,3581369,00.html

Are the regular ipods going to get color?

The price is not bad AT ALL, considering they use high quality paint, they do NOT void the warrenty becuase they have enough skill to paint the iPod without taking it apart, AND they spray a clear coat that acts as an AWESOME screen protector. I am getting it done and I cannot wait!

To All:

A few days ago, my iPod failed. I took it to the local Apple Store and the associate there told me that he could not replace my iPod because if he did, the store would be charnged $250. I then called Apple in Cupertino and they told me that “You might as well have thrown it against a brick wall because, from what I’m seeing here, painting your iPod is considered user damage.” He also told me that since colorware does not have a receipt that says that their services do not void the Apple warranty, they do. So to all who are wondering, sending your iPod to ColorWare to have it painted VOIDS YOUR APPLE WARRANTY.

IF YOU WANT A WARRANTY, PURCHASE A PAINTED IPOD DIRECTLY FROM COLORWARE. Even though ColorWare does not offer a warranty on products that you purchase, then send to them for Painting, they DO offer a warranty to supplant the Apple warranty if you initially purchase your iPod directly from them, already painted.

My wife just got a new iPod, so her old one became mine. Problem was it was a Pink mini. Now i dont have any issues with using pink stuff, im not like that, but i just wanted to make it my own. So I took it apart, took the plastic screen out, cleaned it up, sanded it down and spray painted it with Rust-Oleum black gloss enamel. And it turned out PERFECT! It’s all in the prep. As long as you know what your doing everthing should come out just fine. And as long as you/i have it apart you/i should also change the battery, also make sure your warranty is up.
