    Default Light leak

    So I picked up a new used iPhone 4 8gb for my gf on a trade for an Xbox. Last night I noticed a lot of light leaking from between the panels and the antenna. I wanted to know of this normal. Also it's not activated yet but can I take it in for warranty replacement ? I attached some pics there not greatest but you can kinda see what I'm talking about Attachment 16522

    Light leakage can be an issue for all backlit devices. As I recall some of the BB Storms had an issue with that too. Some folks complained and SOME were able to get their carriers to replace the devices, some were not. I don't believe this is a wide spread issue with the iphone, and I believe they would be good about replacing it. Be polite be firm with your carrier when you express your dissatisfaction.
