    Once i opened my phone to check for scuffs, i looked around my phone and realized the sim card place on the side seems pushed in more then usual, do you guys have the same thing on your iphone 5s? Like its not leveled with the side of the phone?

    nope, mine sits flush. I'd take it to an apple store and have them check it out.

    Yeah - it's completely flush. I'd barely notice it was even there if not for the little pinhole.

    Same here, perfectly level with the side of the phone, no discrepancy either way.

    I doubt it, if the sim is being read it can't be far that far in, if it was me I might make a genius appointment and let them check it and decide.

    Apple just replaced my 4S due to the SIM card tray not being flush. Although mine had one side recessed, and one side was sticking out. The Genius admitted it was a defect and offered to swap. I said yes please. It really messes up the lines of the phone. I felt bad because my 4S was just swapped out the day before for issues with the receiver. But my original 4S had a perfect sim. Either way, yes, they will replace it.

    It was weird though, I almost canceled my Genius appt and told myself I would live with it. In your case, since it's recessed, it might not look as bad. But mine was like all wonky, and crooked looking. I even said to the Genius when he asked what was wrong "This is probably the littlest thing, but..." He seemed to understand that it DID look bad. He actually took my phone in the back and I'm assuming took it apart, and tried to adjust it. He came out with it and it still looked crooked and recessed/protruding.

    Up to you. Down the road will it give you problems? Prob not, but you never know.

    Hurry and ask for a brand new replacement right away.

    well i still have a few more days to decide, i'm on verizon so i would have to pay a 35$ restocking fee, is your sim card side leveled or a little pushed in?

    Mine is flush too.

    If your SIM is reading fine I wouldn't bother, but mine is in a case so I'll never see if even if it was pushed in a bit.
