I just got back from the Apple store where I purchased a 32 GB iPhone 3GS. I originally purchased one last month, but initially I had some battery issues with it. While it is an average unit now, the whole thing left a sour taste in my mouth. I bought a new one for $500 and I am going to sell my first one jail-broken and unlocked for $700 on eBay. The one I originally bought was a week 25 unit. Now, 5 weeks later, the one I bought today is a week 19. That is the first week of May.. Is it possible the unit is refurbished even though it came from a sealed retail box? I don't honestly mind as long as it performs well. It has some flaws/scuffs/hairline cracks on the back plastic. Its possible they could be either manufacturing defects or from previous use. The chrome Apple logo, however, is flawless, which is usually the first thing to show signs of wear. Luckily, I don't mind as long as it performs well. I've already compared the components of both units and I like the one I bought today better in every aspect. The silent switch doesn't jiggle at all, the home and lock buttons are more respsonive (less mushy) and the lock button is even. The bezel is even with the screen on both sides. The LCD is isn't as warm (doesn't look as yellow), just as bright, and has great contrast as well.
