    So yesterday, I dropped my iPhone 4 on a tile floor and smashed up the front glass. I had to buy a replacement today for $199. (thanks to my wife for being REALLY cool about it and letting me replace it with a new one) Anyway, I noticed something with my new one--when the screen is on, I can see light in the headphone jack. I did not notice this being the case with my other ones. I say "ones" because the one I just broke was my third replacement due to my first one having wifi issues and my second one having a dead pixel.

    Anyway, has anyone noticed this? It's quite obvious when it happens, so I would think I would have seen it right away on my other units. Not really anything that bothers me or anything I'm going to worry about in any way. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed it on theirs.

    Now that you mention it I can see light in my headphone jack. That's kinda cool.

    We have two, brother in law has one. All three have had the headphone jack light leak. It's only noticeable from certain angles; I had mine for a month before I noticed it on my husband's, then realized mine had the same thing.

    I would normally notice something like that myself...however, I have never noticed. Now that you said something, I see it.

    Must be normal.
