View Full Version : Hairline crack?

Jun 12, 2010, 11:34 PM
So I just discovered that my white iPhone 3GS has a piece missing from the bottom. I have no idea how or when it disappeared. I haven't dropped it and I treat this thing like a baby. I'm beginning to wonder if this was from a hairline crack that I never really noticed. Could a piece like this come off from a hairline crack expanding over time?

I'm hoping to sell this iPhone so I can get the iPhone 4 in the next couple weeks. Obviously this will bring the price down so I'm hoping I can go in and get a replacement. Just wanted to see what ya'll thought first before making the trek.

Hey thanks for the reply. So I took it in and without hesitation they said they were going to replace it with a brand new iPhone. They mentioned that it's an issue and the white ones show the cracks more but the black ones get them as well (they are just harder to see). Apple really did a great job of taking care of me.

One happy customer.
