    I notice my iphone 3gs has a crack at the bottom at the charger port in the black plastic, is there any way I can fix it? is it serious?

    the phone seems to work ok, I just bought a speck products silicone rubber cover for it & will put it on the phone, will this help prevent any further cracks?

    besides being very careful, is there any thing else I can do to stop the crack for going further, as I will need to plug it & unplug it to charge the iphone.

    My 3Gs has a crack in it as well. Most probably do. It could be called a "defect" and Apple might replace if its with warranty. There is no danger in having this crack.

    It must be a weakness on the 3GS I have the same crack, bought a new back but have not got around to changing it yet.

    I think it's pretty common with the 3G/3G S⃣ . I had the same problem with my 3G.
