    Hi there all iPhone 3GS(White) owners!

    I've been reading about people complaining about discoloration on certain areas on the back of the white iPhone...something to do with the battery over-heating and forming a brown/pink color on the white cover!!!
    Can any of you confirm this?

    Here is a link: http://gizmodo.com/5303135/white-iphone-3gs-overheats-to-the-point-of-discoloration

    Just google for more links.

    Also...any info on the battery life will help a great deal!

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a thread in the news forum suggesting that this is now due to cases being used on the 3G S.

    Thanks for your prompt reply Moka!
    How long have you had it?
    Do you use it extensively?

    Also, is the battery life good on it, or does it drain off too quickly?

    Yeah...I read about that too!
    I didn't know if that was true or not...so was trying to confirm.

    What do you think of the battery life on the 3 GS?

    currently on my third week with the case, use it very extensively, at some points it warms up a little bit, bot nothing close to being hot at all. It usually warms up a bit when im using the video recorder for a while (10-20min) recording or an app that is processor intensive which is common sense...

    Awesome!

    Thanks Moka/SpaceKitty!

    I was really still deciding whether I should go buy it or not...because I don't have an Apple store any where close to where I live. I am going to order it online from the AT&T website (2 days shipping!).

    In case I had a problem with my phone, I guess I'd probably have to mail it back or something like that.

    What do you all think? Should I go for it?

    It's up to you. I have owned all three iPhones and have never had to exchange one. They have all been perfect.
