    maybe this only applies to 3GS but if you have one smell where the power cord plugs into the phone. Do you get a faint smell of Starburst's? I know this is a beyond bizarre post...its just to weird to me. Oh yeah i think this is a 3GS refurb since i had to take my other one back. Maybe the person that owned it before was a starburst fan. I may be crazy

    If you stick it places it should not be then yes, it will smell.
    Plastic will absorb smells I think.

    Oh, UD, you're treading on shaky ground! You may set a record for shortest time out of a time-out before getting a time-out again! :)

    She liked my seasoned response! :)

    Oh, and OP, I don't think the iPhone should have a smell (figure I might as well contribute here). I'm thinking you're imagining things.

    I think that the OP just wants everyone to smell their iPhone.

    Well, I refuse. :D

    Hey your right.. it does have a sweet smell to it. More of just a quality plastic smell to me though.

    Wow. I was definitely thinking OP was crazy but I'll be damned ifi it doesn't have a sweet smell...

    What were you doing sniffing your phone in the first place???
