    Is this a mistake, or do they really not include a cleaning cloth anymore. My 3GS black 32GB doesn't have one in the little box thing with the manual like my 3G did....

    No mistake. They do not include one.

    Sad face :(

    I thought I missed it, but it looks like no cleaning cloth. Maybe it's a statement about the new oleophobic coating.

    Exactly, at least that's what the marketing department will tell you, but I also believe its a cost cutting measure.

    Yeah, tell me about it. By removing the cloth, I would expect a 32GB 3G to go for $198.92 instead of $199.00 flat. :rolleyes:

    its outrageous....no cloth? what on earth is the world coming to?

    i'm never going to buy an apple product again until this disgusting practice is rectified, apple have really crossed the line now!

    apple give us our cloth back, none of us will ever even walk past an apple store until this £0.50p item is back in every iphone box!!!!

    let's all send them back to where they came from with a big steaming turd in the box where the cloth should be.

    :rolleyes:

    shirt works fine now. new coating pretty much makes the cloth unnecessary
