    Okay, the silent button on ma iPhone 3G(16gb) just came off :confused::confused:! tried calling the Apple support (India), got an recorded message saying, "the call center is closed". Post which I called Vodafone, they have asked me to visit a Vodafone store, and that they would me out! Am still not sure if I would have to shell out cash, am keeping my fingers crossed! I really hope that I get ma iPhone replaced! Any idea if it comes under warranty?(mixed response). I also found an apple forum thread on the issue! Any once else got the same issues?

    it shouldnt matter that your in india, the only thing is if you dont live near an apple store you will more than likely have to ship your broken phone to Apple and in turn they will ship you a new one

    It is a common problem, my second one came with a broken silence button out of the box. Take it back and they will replace it under warranty.

    Darn it.. I have the same problem, mine is coming loose, but not all the way yet. Service in America is WAY better then here in The Netherlands, I called T-Mobile NLD, and they told me I could get a temporary phone, which costs 50 euros. And they would take it in for repair, and that would take FOUR weeks:mad::mad::mad::mad:, idiots!

    I have noticed mine getting more and more loose. I see it falling off in the future. Will apple believe that I didnt drop it and have it fall of cus of that? I'm tempted to contact them now and report its loose so if it does fall off in the future I have something to back it up with...

    jailbreaking is software and has nothing to do with a button falling of which is a hardware fault. its not like you trow the iPhone against the cold hard concrete wall of a jail-cell :rolleyes:.

    if you QuickPwn it and not isntall Cydia and Installer i bet you they wont know that its jailbroken without doing diagnostics tests or looking thru the Unix structure.
