    The oleophobic coating on my 3GS seems to be "bubbling" or wearing off in a few places. Is this possible? Has anyone had something similar happen to their 3GS?

    I take great care of my iphone, but have never used any chemicals to clean it.

    Any thoughts???

    Yes, probably. Mine is certainly not so effective as it was originally. What's more, Apple do state that its effectiveness will eventually wear off.

    I abuse mine, and it is 100% still... Is it bubbling or wearing off? That is 2 different things

    bubbling sounds like a faulty application of the coating and may be worth talking to Apple about
    wearing off is a natural process caused by friction
