I carry my iPhone in my pocket naked. When reaching into my pocket to get it out, the headphone jack is so sharp that it sliced a pretty good chunk off of my middle finger.

sure it was the heroin needle in your pocket?

I kid.

but after inspecting my iPhone I really don't understand how you could have hurt yourself with it.

actually if you run your finger over the jack and down towards the back of the phone the rear edge of the hole is somewhat sharp.


I can see how the OP could have caught his finger on it.

I carry mine head-down, screen facing in so when I take it out to answer a call, it's in the proper orientation. And I still have all my fingers...

I believe the OP. Just minutes ago, opening my MBP as I sat on the deck in shorts with it on my lap, the lid caught the fleshy part* of my inner thigh as I opened it and gave me quite a pinch.

I think Apple is out to maim its customers. I blame Ive. Sure, the designs are pretty. They're also deadly, and I wish more people would mention this.

* which, nowadays, is any part of my body.

I've been carrying my iPhone around in my pocket almost every day since day one and it's never done that to me.

If it really concerns the OP I'll gladly take it.:)

Here's an idea:

Flip the iPhone where the headphone port is facing the bottom of your pocket. ;)
