    I got my iphone 2 weeks ago and I love it. But I have noticed that every time I connect my phone to the usb cable and take it out it leaves some very deep small scratches. Do you guys also have these? I have attached some pics so you guys can see what I mean.

    Btw I have a white iphone 4.

    These scratches are very normal. All iPhones, iPods, and iPads have them.

    This is true. It's the way the 30 pin is designed that causes it. I was worried about it on my iPad at first, but then realized the only way to not scratch it is to not ever sync.

    Me too. That's why I stopped caring. Enjoy the iDevice like we're supposed to. ;)

    Sounds like you'll REALLY benefit from the WiFI Sync this fall with iOS5 :)

    Alot of people including myself have worse. If I were you, I'd worry more about the phone's screen and back itself than something you can barely see..

    Ok, so no one else is gonna say it?

    I gotta be the one to come in here and say "this thread is a joke, right?"

    Ok. There. You made me say it. Thanks a lot.

    Nah it isn't hard to see. I just happened to notice it and came here to get opinions. And I don't have ODC.

    I think it's the way the new USB cords are designed. The old ones used to have the little buttons on each side that you press in to be able to remove the cord and it came out gently, but the new ones you just sorta have to yank out. :(

    Yeah I know! I remember the old ones that came with the ipods and were much more gentle. I really don't know why they stopped making them like that.

    Nah it's not something that will get my attention all the time now that I have seen all the responses and know that I'm not the only one.
