iPhone 3Gs Developing Body Cracks?

Growing threads in our forums and the Apple Discussion Forums are pointing to what may be an issue with the plastic casing of some iPhone 3Gs.

The majority of the reports revolve around the white 16 GB model; however, a few users of the black model have reported cracks in their casings as well. See the gallery below for a sample of images from our forum:

Excuse me...... MAGNIFYING GLASS.....I think everyone knew what I meant. It was the same thing they look into your freaking ears with at the doctor, with the little cone attachment too and the light. :cool:


That would be an auroscope. :)

I posted pages and pages ago about my crack along the headphone jack. It developed from a little hairline to a proper crack though still absolutely tiny. Since then it developed 3 more hairlines around the screw point. Phone is about 6 months old.

So today I stroll into the Apple store, got an 'appointment' and without any expectation or explanation just handed it to a 'genius' and said "ive got a crack on my iPhone, thats the best one" pointing to the headphone jack.

He took it, scrutinised it for a second and said "hmm, thats a shear ... I'll get you another one"

Signed on the dotted line of the repair order and took my new iPhone. Seamless, beautiful! I nearly feel guilty about it because I was totally fine with the crack, I just wanted a pristine one because I KNOW i'm going to want to sell my 3GS in two weeks time ...

Someone makes a new thread for a subject that already has its own thread, other people get mad.

Someone searches for and finds a thread about the subject they want to post, other people get mad.

I really don't get it.


What was contributed by the poster that dug up a 7 month old (not being posted) thread that is 3.5 years old? Stupid resurrection of a widely known issue.
