    I had to replace my 3GS a couple months ago and just realized that my screen on the replacement iPhone is way off centered to the right. Would apple replace my device for that reason? It's really annoying when I try to unlock it with my right hand with my thumb and have to do it a couple of itme to get it

    Thanks!

    This is not a new fact, Apple has been having this issue since the iPhone 3G. When I had those phones, I had my iPhone 3G replaced 3 times and my iPhone 3GS once, all of them had this issue, and most (if not all) the iPhone 3G/3GS that I've seen by friends/co-workers have this issue.

    I doubt that they will replace it for just that issue.

    EDIT:
    I just wanted to add this link to a forum from 2008 with people having the same issue, so again, nothing new here:

    What do you mean by the screen being off centered? Is that an issue with the 4 too?

    Thanks for the link, saving! I was out and about when I posted this and had little service so I could not look anything up. I didn't even realize that it posted haha

    The link is not for this forum, but rather another forum I found online that has other people talking about the same issue. I thought it would be a good reference.

    AndrewR23, by off centered, the OP means that on the bottom right corner of the iPhone, the glass kind of dips in where the Glass and Bezel meet. Since the iPhone 4 does not have a chrome bezel around the phone like the first 3 iPhones did, it's not affected by this issue, although the first iPhone didn't have this issue, it only seems to be the iPhone 3G/3GS.
