    So, just as the title states.....My < 1 wk old White 32 GB 3GS appears to have the following problems:

    - Screen feels overly yellow compared to my 16 gb 3G (I'm really trying to accept the warmer color, but it just feels, too warm)
    - The ringer/vibrate switch rattles when its set to vibrate (I hear it when picking up the phone from my desk)

    and finally....

    - The SIM tray doesn't sit completely flush with the body/case of the phone
    - There is a small gap between the back of the phone case and the SIM tray that isn't present on the front portion. (worried about dust getting up in there, the 2 3G's I have sit completely flush and dont have any gaps between the tray and front/back of the case....hopefully that description makes sense)

    So should I try and get a replacement? deal with it? I've read a lot of threads on issues with the first two points I made but very few...in fact 1 with the last issue I stated.

    Thoughts guys? :apple:

    my phone has all 3 'issues.' though im not sure if the rattle is coming from the ring/silent switch or possibly from the autofocus camera.

    im not planning on swapping mine out for these types of issues...

    I would at least try, I prefer my apple stuff to be perfect out of the box...

    Doesn't the sim tray gap annoy you the most? There are definitely build quality issues with apple....mines a week 25 unit.

    i would say the screen color bothers me the most. though i only really noticed it when i placed it side by side next to my old 3g - the colors just didnt look as good. plus the auto-brightness function doesnt seem to be as reliable as the 3g.

    the sim thing doesnt bother me too much because i dont really hold the phone there...

    If it bothers you

    1. make a Appointment with the Genius Bar
    2. Go to the Appointment
    3. Explain the issues
    4. the Genius will either replace it explain why!
    that's pretty much it! :D

    if you don't want to drive that far call the online support see what they say!
