    So my iPhone 3G (black) has been babied since day one and no drops. Today I noticed that there is a small hairline fracture crack on the back of my phone. Is this a common problem? How much does it cost me to fix my back casing and whats the $ damage?

    Does warranty cover it?

    I reside in Canada.

    Thanks!

    Yes, if you are still under the warranty period (or extended AppleCare) then Apple will replace your iPhone. I'd go ahead and give them a call.

    I've never had a crack on any of my iPhones. Others have and they've got them exchanged within the first year's warranty....:eek::eek::eek:

    I have just noticed this myself with my 3G. I have always kept it in perfect shape in cases. When I went to clean the phone out of the case I noticed it.

    I had this exact same thing happen the other day, took my black iphone 3g out of the case and noticed it had the same hairline cracks as I had seen on white versions. Called Apple and they sent me a replacement overnight for free!

    Just an update, the Apple store gave me a replacement for free.
