    Has yours ever got a yellow glaze on it yet? I remember back in the day when I had a 5th generation iPod the click wheel would turn green/yellow. This is my first white iPhone and I'm just wondering if it does ever happen it will be an easy replacement from Apple? Thanks!

    Never happened to my white iPhone 3G and I've had it since last year and I've heavily used it.

    I heavily use my white 3GS with no case on it or screen protector, and I have no yellowing.

    Good to know, I just replaced my black 3Gs with a white one. Should have thought about it better. I plan on carrying it without a case too.

    No yellowing of mine, it's in a case, and a screen protector at all times.

    I bought mine at AT&T. You have 30 days to return it and have to pay a small re-stocking fee.

    they do,

    when I had my 3G, my warranty was about to run out, so I complained about the stress cracks and they sent me refurbished one, which I sold for 400 bucks and bought the 3GS and made a hundred bucks..

    now my 3GS has some stress cracks, and I'm going to do the same thing in april, get a refurb, sell it and buy the new iphone in June..

    Same here. The only yellowing I've ever seen on a white 3G/S was actually an InvisibleShield - once removed, the phone was once again gleaming white.
