I have a white iPhone 3g. No such issues. Of course I take care of it. Mine has yet to see the light of day without a case + screen protector. Those photos showed iphones which had obviously been abused! They looked dirty and the compartment where the sim card goes looked like it was black around the edges.

Are iPhone 3Gs developing cracks? - Engadget
I'm worried now. It appears I have several but it's hard to tell whether it's the invisibleSHEILD I have on or actual cracks. And I don't want to peel it off to and waste $20. It could be from the rubber squeegee to get air bubbles out. They look much too straight.
Anyone else have problems?

I think those ppl put the phone in their back pockets and sat on them. I put mine in my front pocket with my money and it looks like the day i got it.
BTW, Bad Ash, I returned my dust under glass iphone and got another one. This one is my 4th and it's flawless for now. Knock on wood, hope nothing happens to it.

i noticed that my white iphone had these cracks around the headphone jack and the camera and i only had the phone for 3 days i could imagine that this would be a serious problem after a month so i called apple care and they were happy because they said they wanted to get my phone as soon as possible so they could find out why this is happening because they said they recieved over 1000 complaints they also sent me a new iphone overnight this is going to be my 3rd iphone my first one had a defective ringer switch

Thankfully mine is fine, it was just the covering I had on.
I ripped off the invisibleshield today, as I wasn't very happy with it. The corners started to peel back and dirt got in there which made it very ugly. I'm thinking of ordering a FullBodyShield, iLounge gave it an A- and it's only 19 bucks.

It is really hard to put the headset in the headset jack. I have two different headsets (both designed for the iPhone) and I really have to push hard to get the jack in. I could see cracking resulting from the fact that the hole exerts pressure on the plastic as it has to accommodate for the the jack entering. It is almost as if the hole is a bit too small for the jack... just a hair too small. (I see this turning dirty.)
