    Everyonce in a while, if i push in the 2 longsides of the phone(3g) there will be a crack like something moved. Is the plastic slowly moving or something, cause this crack can come alot.

    Do you keep the phone in your back pocket and sit on it alot? I noticed this with my first gen iPhone. I have tried to stop doing it with my 3G though, so as not to cause any undue stress. So I haven't really seen any problems with my 3G yet. Not sure if it's the cause, but could be.

    Lol no, ive never kept it in my back pocket, always in my front right pocket. =You cant really physiclly see that its moving i guess, but just that crack is kinda weird.

    i think we may have the same problem

    i have a black 16gb model

    take a close look at the plastic around your bottom connector

    mine has a small crack in the plastic ( which is giving me the same symptoms as you described)
