    Are you supposed to be able to see light if you look down into the headphone jack?

    It really doesn't bother me but I just noticed it and was wondering if it was par for the course.

    I can honestly say all iPhone 4's do that. I've checked displays as well as my own. Blame my OCD :D Unless they fixed(?) it in later builds.

    Wow, it looks pretty cool.

    I guess it's a "feature" to check your water sensor. :p

    I actually noticed this when showing my brother were the water sensors were. I said "There is one in the headphone jack, look for a white dot." He said back "Oh I see it, there is even a light to help me find it." I was like, huh? Lol Confirmed on all 3 of my iPhone 4's, non issue imho though, its actually kind of nice, it could help find the headphone hole in the dark. :D

    I've compared mine with my buddies and his is super bright. I have a little light leak but not as bad as what all of you have described.

    Perhaps you have different brightness settings?

    Be careful...

    If I learned anything from american comedies, is that one should never look through a hole.... :D

    I want a light in my headphone jack! I turned my brightness up all the way and took it into a dark room and I still don't see it. :(

    EDIT: Oh I see it! It's barely noticeable, even in complete darkness.

    Yea, because mine was barely noticeable until I turned the brightness all the way up.
