    Wow, I just noticed what looks like a 1"~1 1/2" crack in the display of my less than one month old iPhone. The phone has never been dropped or sat-on or anything of that nature. Is there any history of the iPhone displays cracking?

    Well, I guess I'll be headed back to Best Buy to see if they will warrantee it.

    No, I either carry it in my coat pocket or my front pants pocket.

    I just stopped by Best Buy and they pretty much said that I'm SOL. Basically, because I didn't purchase their insurance they can't do much for me.

    Ya that is super lame. My buddy got a crack in his screen but put his in his back pocket with the glass facing outward. Never heard of screens cracking for no reason. Something must have hit it. Sorry though.

    I was just reading about their iPhone insurance too...

    take it to an Apple store. My first one was cracked because someone broke it at the gym and then replaced it for free.

    Apple may or may not be able to swap on the spot. I have heard good stories and then bad stories regarding replacements. Good luck if you go that route.

    in your coat pocket ? you probably hit something where your iphone was in your coat. That's a bad spot.
    I use a vertical hip case by marware. Marware C.E.O. Sleeve for iPhone 3G - Apple Store (U.S.)

    What is SOL ?

    That sucks. I'd make an appointment with a Genius at Apple and hope that they decide to be nice.

    What is SOL ?
    S*** out of luck

    Omari, that isnt a bad looking case. Very low profile which I like. I have 3 Incase sliders (2 metalic and 1 white) and although great, I hate that it takes away from the over all look of my iPhone. One thing that is good though is that I have not 1 single scratch on my 3G. The back is flawless and literaly could pass for a brand new one. Lol....

    sorry I got a bit carried away there OP.

    LOL yes. I love the case. It keeps my phone clean. I wrote a review for it just now. I do carry around my rubber incipio case because with that case, you can't put a iPhone with a rubber case in it. So if I change settings, like go to work ( where I can't use to my phone ) and I want to carry my iPhone in my pocket, I slip on my rubber case and put it in my pocket. If i have to set the phone down in on a surface that would scratch the back, i know i have the rubber case on it to protect it.

    I'll see if there is an Apple store near by. I pretty much live in BFE so there isn't much in the way of big name stores in the immediate area.
