Guys,

I have just received the new iPhone 4s (Black, 64GB).
It goes without saying that I love the phone and everything seems to be great (the screen, the home button etc.)

However, I have noticed that the mute/silent switch is a bit loose. (compared to the iPhones of my friends) It just doesn't feel right: when the switch is in on-off position, it wiggles a little bit.

Do you know whether it is a major problem/defect?
I am so afraid that it will break down in the future.

I would return it, like you said, you don't want it breaking in the future.

Mines the same. Little loose if you run your finger over it length ways. On/off switch is the same.

Yes. I would really like to know how widespread the issue is. I have seen two iPhone 4's, which have a very sturdy Mute/Silent switch.

Its not a major issue.

If it does come looser in the future, just take it to an Apple store and they will fix it.

Just enjoy the phone!!!

People just look for the flaws all day long :D
No, it is not true. I knew which issues a new iPhone 4S might have. A quick look at the device revealed that it is almost perfect. I so don't want to send it back: it is only a loose Mute/Silent switch. But maybe it is a good idea to do so. The iPhone 4S is not a 100 euro toy, but a 800 euro one. ($1.077)
