    It might be. Take it in to an Apple store and ask them to check the phone. It's free, especially since you have a one year warranty you are currently under, even if you did not get Applecare. And even if you were not under warranty, Apple still does not charge you anything to check your device. If they find something they can either fix it or replace it under warranty.

    If nothing is wrong with it, then at least you have eliminated your device as the problem.
