Hi all! This is my first post here. I've followed the forums for awhile but never felt the need to post. Like a lot of you who were lucky to be in the first wave of orders at launch, I received my iPhone today. Gold 16gb Verizon. It came out of the box with a few nicks and scratches on the back gold plate: As small as they are, it's still disheartening to have a product come out of the box not at 100%. I'm not upset about it really but I went ahead and called Apple and was moved up the line to a top manager. I sent him the pictures. I told him I understand we're in a predicament because replacing it isn't so easy with the gold production situation. They're trying to come up with a solution and he's going to call me back. I told him I might be being ridiculous even calling about this but he assured me that I wasn't, that my phone should have come out of the box with no nicks or scratches. I'm coming from a 4s and this is my first experience with the new aluminum/metal backing which I realize scratches more easily. If it's easy to replace, even if it takes a few weeks I might go ahead and do it. Obviously I'm not wanting to part from the phone I have until I get the new one. I just wanted thoughts from other Apple customers on what you would do. Would you want a replacement? Also congrats to everyone getting their phones this week and for those of you still waiting, hang in there! It will be worth the wait!
