    I had my iPhone 4 out at a bar last night and a friend noticed there was light coming out of the headphone jack. Sure enough, there is light leaking out from the screen in the headphone jack. Is this normal or should I take it in to be replaced? Thanks for the help.

    Mine has a little as well. Doesn't seem to be an issue of any kind.

    It's normal. It's a compact design and placing a seal to avoid little leaks like that would have added bulk.

    Look at it as a feature. Kinda like like an illuminated key switch on your auto. ;)

    I heard it was there for two reasons....number 1 being so you could find the jack to plug your headphones into at night and number 2 so that the genius bar could more easily tell if there is water damage.
