    Hey all. I just got my 3G iPhone on Saturday. While watching a show in the dark, I notice I could see the backlight through the side slit of the phone.

    I circled the part in red. If I put pressure on the side, I won't see the light anymore. Can I take it back for a new one since I didn't drop it?

    Same Issue Here

    I've noticed the same thing. I'm worried about rain/condensation drops being sucked in there. Should I exchange?

    This is a known issue called a "light leak". You can get it exchanged at your Apple store. There's a chance that dirt/dust could get in and damage the internals of your iPhone.

    Search MRoogle for other threads about this issue.

    Thanks soberbrain. Never knew about that site before. :D

    And sorry about not searching first, it totally slipped my mind.
