    I was reading another forum and noticed someone with this problem where the text on the back cover is not aligned properly.

    I then looked at mine and has the same issue...although not as severe but still quite noticeable. I noticed the person who originally posted this is also from Australia, just wondering if it's limited to our shipment or if you guys have the same issue as well.

    argh...didn't notice it before and now it's all I seem to be able to see when I look at it.

    :(

    ----------

    Actually I'd like for those little letters not to be on there and rather just have it say iPhone

    Wow, that actually is extremely noticeable. I'm surprised. I clicked the thread expecting to roll my eyes again this morning, but you have a valid point.

    Such an odd thing to be wrong with the phone too. You'd think that kind of thing is so precisely aimed and lined up on the assembly line.

    I gave mine a long, hard look after that picture. I'm in the US and it's aligned correctly.

    Yeah, that would've been nice. Clean and simple. Mine's black so it's actually not that noticeable, something I can live with.

    The picture you posted is even worse than not aligned, it is also slanted. That would bother me to no end.

    Yeah, ok you got me there. I though he was referring to the lettering not being centered, but I see I just didn't understand. But you can also see that the bottom line isn't centered with the top line, not just slanted.

    So no defense here, I just noticed it as 2 different problems, and picked up on the same one he was noting.

    I think it would be neat to have as sort of a collectors item. Albeit an expensive one.

    I believe that's a known issue with having to manufacture an iPhone upside down for the Australian market.

    Return it about 5-6 times and realize no iPhone is aligned enough for your needs, then make a thread about your frustration every time

    Keep it. It's not too noticeable on the black.
