    A good portion of the early screens had "negative black" problems. Do you think there will be any mass-defects with iPhone 3G?

    Hopefully not. I would think that after having made iPhones for the past year, the new one should be mostly free from defects.

    It would really suck to go and pay for a new iPhone 3G, activate a new plan, take it home and realize that there are dead pixels, or that the screen is messed up, or something else...

    Remember that the phone is going to be turned on in store while activated. So if something catches your eye then, do not leave the store until they replace it.

    But as you said, hopefully this won't be an issue.

    Please dont start up a mass hysteria about negative black... I was fine with my original iPhone until I read that thread. After while, I think I was complaining that my chrome wasn't chrome enough.

    Agreed - people should try and check it over quickly to make sure it's OK. I can imagine the hassle involved in "exchanging" your iPhone.
