I purchased my 3G on launch day (July 11, 2008) and it's now the 29th. I'm curious if Apple gives people any leeway on the 1 year warranty, I have a few issues with my phone and I've just been too busy to go in and I finally made an appointment for tomorrow. One of the issues I have is the cracking. When I was in to the Apple store last month to replace the battery in my Macbook pro, I talked to the genius about the cracks on my iphone and he told me they are just "cosmetic - not to worry"... However, since that conversation the crack around my vibration switch has gotten much deeper and I'm concerned about this. In addition, the phone has within the past month been dropping calls at my house. I have a full 5 bars of signal at all times, and even when it drops, I have full signal but it just disconnects people and says "Call failed". This happened before, and they replaced the phone (about 1 month after I got the first one), and the problem went away. I'm concerned that the original replacement fixed it, and now the problem is back again that this is a hardware issue with the iphone, but who knows. It's very frustrating paying $100 a month and all my friends on Verizon just make fun of me and laugh at my "Terrible iphone service". The only thing I can do in return is laugh at their ugly Blackberry curves.
