3G iPhone Owners Report Case is Cracking

Posted July 30, 2008 at 12:19pm by iClarified
3G iPhone owners are noticing that hairline cracks are appearing around the volume buttons and headphone jack.

These cracks are especially noticed by owners with the white 16gb iPhone.

The crack has formed between the metal surrounding the screen and the metal volume button. It looks like hairline stress fracture to me. It is a little difficult to notice, but since I have, my eyes are clearly focused on it right now, it’s bothersome.

A thread has also been started on Apple Discussions in this regard.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Now come one... what did you expect. 200$ phone, they *HAD* to cut corners somewhere. An aluminum case, and 250$ a pop... but a marketing guru would tell you that the below 200$ line is a psychological one... and I might agree. Anyhow, no big surprises there I say. Wait for a 3rd rev or buy yourself a 1st gen. swallow the pill, you couldn't wait for it to come out.
