    Scary reports about dead pixels, dust under the screen and cheap finishings ...

    The majority out there has no issues?

    Fingers crossed mine seems absolutely fine, I only got it a few hours ago though so who know what might happen.
    If theres a hint of dust under the screen the thing is going back.. (how the hell would it even get in?!).

    Perfect here. No scratches, no smudges under the screen, no cracks, no technical issues, and no loose switches.

    (16GB White)

    Mine was DOA. Screen would not respond, but you could hear it ring. I was in the Apple store, but had to go through an entire return at the Genius bar since the sim had been activated.

    New one is working fine.

    weird situation here

    the first one I got 8gb black, kept on stalling when I would go to contacts...it would freeze a good 10 secs before I could scroll...I thought it was defective, my 1st generation never stalled on me...took it back got a new one, but same problem, but it only stalls 3 secs now...anyone else having this issue, when you switch to contacts, it takes a couple of seconds to be able to scroll, it's very annoying, maybe it's a bug on all fons?:(

    First one died after 36 hours, got "Repair needed, unable to make or receive phone calls" error message on the phone and after that it pretty much quit working. Was unable to restore the software on it.

    Got a replacement at the Apple store just 2 days ago and it's been chugging along fine so far...

    I got a 16GB Black, working beautifully.

    Roommate also got a 16GB Black but his has had much worse battery life and has a group of dim pixels in the middle of the screen

    I was 5th in line, he was 6th. Phew.

    My 16GB was acting sluggish when SMS and a few other things. Called Apple and had to re-install the software and new firm ware. Works great so far. Don't forget to sinc your contacts and calender with outlook if you are on a PC before you try it though.

    There's something wrong with my speaker that makes incoming voices, rings, etc., sound rattley and distorted when I'm on my talking phone. I'm hoping to swap it out this weekend.

    Otherwise, it's wonderful, and my husband's is perfect.
