    yeah i have the same probelm with my old 1st gen phone, although the lines appeared at the top of my screen....I have a 3g phone now so no biggy, but i checked the other day and the lines were still on my old phone...i think its a loose connection, whether or not ur brave enouh to open up the case is another matter

    Of all the QC issues people are getting exchanges for (dust, light leaks, tiny cracks, etc), yours is the most worthy of replacement I've seen. Definitely take it back.

    i am quite annoyed at myself tho..

    i did the needle trick to make my speaker louder a good 6months ago, having faith in an apple product not breaking on me!! then this happens..

    so i am unsure what to do.. send it back and hope they dont discover it??
