    So I don't know what it is but all of a sudden I feel like my screen is "bulging". This is weird and it is very subtle. It kind of feels like a battery that has bulged. Hopefully it's not my battery or something that is bulging and pushing up on the screen. I know the common response is to take it to an apple store and what not but just wanted to know if anyone else had encountered this.

    That's pretty odd, considering the screen itself isn't really flexible (while mounted to the phone), so to "bulge" would be a pretty interesting marvel...what were you judging this on? Do you see a different shape looking at it at an angle or something?

    Visually I don't see a lot but when it comes to swiping or typing it's almost like there's a weird new resistance and it feels different. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if it gets worse.

    Well if it's bulging, something has to be wrong. I wonder if you can post a picture of what you're talking about. LIke a side shot of the phone. Worse case, make an appointment with apple.

    I would make an appointment with apple right away and not waste anytime... the only thing in the phone to make the screen bulge would be the battery...

    I wouldn't wait honestly, i'd just take it in, try to show them what you mean and get a new one...you could end up like one of those stories where the iPhone explodes and blows some digits off, lol...

    You probably over charged it.

    but in all seriousness, make an appt at apple, and they will test it out, and let you know if it is infact Bulging, or not. Hope it all works out for you.

    Thanks everyone. How much do you think I could sue for if it does explode haha. It's weird because visually you can't really tell the difference but I have spent a lot of time on my phone since I've had it and send a lot of messages it it just all of a sudden felt different. And the best way to describe it is that it is bulging in the slightest way. I'm just worried that the apple store won't have anymore and try to give me a refurbished one.

    I thought that if you were within your 30 days, you could get a new device as a replacement.

    No way there are refurbished ones this early. It will be a new one in a warranty replacement packaging.
