    I bought an iphone 4 two weeks ago and since then I've realized that the headphone jack is crooked. The metal piece that the headphone jack sits on dips in a bit near the black band connecting the two metal parts and this causes the top of the phone to not be perfectly flat. It's hard to tell from a picture about the unflush metal parts, but I think you can see that the headphones go in crooked (all headphone I've tried go in crooked).

    Is this pretty minor and I should forget about it? It works perfectly fine. Or should I return this as a cosmetic defect?

    Same problem here..

    My headphone jack has the same problem.. It's very noticeable.. It works fine but I'm think it may be a problem with the motherboard... I dunno..

    Yes, I've tried my iPod's touch ones and the same problem... I think it's a problem inside the iPhone.. maybe the motherbooard is misplaced.. Do you think this apply for the warranty?

    Probably not - my iPad also has a slight angle to the headphone-jack, almost identical to your iPhone (even in the same direction). I don't want to start an argument here, but maybe it's intentional??

    Why would be intentional? I think its totally unsightly.. I mean, the normal thing is to be straight.. And Apple, the company with the best designs can't have these issues.. I don't know if this can be a reason to use the warranty.
