    I haven't seen any gap... maybe I need to look closer or is it very noticeable?

    Edit- after further examination I noticed a TINY bit of light seeping through by the volume controls but it did not seem like anything serious..

    Plus, if it is actually a gap it is covered up by my Innocase Slider

    It might not bother some people and that is fine. Just want to get what I paid for.

    Now for those that don't mind it, just hold onto your iPhone until you are getting close to your warranty being up in a year and trade it in for a new one (well refurbished, but it's pretty much new).

    I completely agree with you. I'd take my phone back for a single dead pixel if I had one. Did that with my Bold. If I pay that much money for something it better be perfect and to my liking. If not, give me a new one.

    The one they gave me has the same problem - lol

    I am debating on holding onto it until the warranty is close to being up or making them give me another one - :P

    I'd go back until they get it right... that's just me though. If I get the smallest scratch I'll buy a new phone. Call it my OCD. :o

    I know the feeling, but see if I get a scratch or two I can just go get another one - lol

    And hope that one has the same issue -

    I'm the same way as Bad Ash..

    My Bold has a TINY scratch on the screen and a little mark on the bottom of the bezel and if drives me insane. It's one of the reasons I'm using my iPhone a lot more.

    When I got a mark on my silver bezel I bought a black one.

    Best place to get it is BerryMods.com - Home. They sell the bezel with all the buttons and screens already in place. Ready to install.

    I just bought a brand new iphone 3g from the at&t store in January. I took it home and noticed that on the screen their were 3 dead pixels on the lcd. I took it to the apple store. They replaced it with no problem. The replacement worked for a few days and I noticed it was running really hot. A couple days later the WiFi stopped working. I restored and still had the same problem. I took it back to the apple store and got it replaced they said their were anntena problems. The next phone had the same problem a few days later but was not running hot. As of today this is my 4th replacement. I went and purchased the Apple Care protection since I noticed the quality is not up to par. I believe doesn't care about some minor defects as it keeps people coming into the store. Believe it or not I actually purchased a new macbook my first time I had the iphone replaced. Apple harps on the fact that they will replace the phone if you are experiancing issues and it maybe a way to keep people coming into the stores. ANYWAY, best phone I've had. I had the BB Storm for like two weeks when I deceided to ditch that and go with a real phone like the iphone.

    Sure I phones look great as long as keeps working.
    From what I have read here there seems to be a big problem with them.

    SO keep your fingers crossed and good luck if you have one without defects.

    Have purchased a few ipods in the past ie 80Gig units. all were bad.

    good luck

    One thing about forums like these....people find them when they have problems, for every 1 problem you read about here...there are thousands of phones with no issues whatsoever.

    I must of gotten lucky because works pretty damn well so far. If I do have any problems it's from jailbreaking. And those are usually my fault and easy to fix.

    Exactly right. You will read about issues on forums - no matter what phone it may be. Blackberry, HTC's, Nokia, etc... doesn't matter. They all have issues.
