    A few days after i bought my iPhone i noticed that in this one section the chrome that's near the screen is rough and not smooth like the rest. It's about almost half of an inch and it's really been bothering me over the week. I'm not sure if i should return it for a new one. Besides that it's perfect but it's really annoying because it's very noticeable under light, it actually shines because the chrome is rough. It's not noticeable when under no light.

    Sorry no picture because my camera battery is dead. Should i return it for that reason?

    I think it's kind of a stupid reason but it's not like Apple will be losing any money to replace the bezel. If you're a perfectionist and can't look past it then give it a shot. Most of the time they're not very forgiving when it comes to replacements for damage or what looks like damage.

    It would bother me too so I don't think I would be happy if I didn't exchange it for a new one.

    haha sorry and yeah i wish i wasn't a perfectionist, it really pisses me sometimes. But this is not damage, it's "defective" manufacture. I actually take really good care of my iPhone and look at it very closely for damage and stuff like that.

    It would bother me if I bought anything and it wasn't NEW and undamaged. Take it back...

    They'll stay on the computer, just remember to do your back-up, this way you can use that same data on your new 3G iPhone when you bring it home.

    Also do you think if i wanted to change colors they would let me? I'm thinking about it i have white... but at that point would they say no to that unless i pay the 10% restocking fee? Btw i bought this on the 30th.

    IDK ... i like the white but it kinda sucks that the screen side is black =(
    On the other side black is not very original but it's sleek.
