Well it happened to me, even though: a) I really did not buy into the bend hype b) I've had this thing all of a month and a half and have babied it more than should ever be necessary. Case, cover, dedicated front pocket, yadda yadda. The bend is tiny, but it is probably only going to get worse. I am still within the window where I could sign up for Applecare, which sounds dumb/greasy, but my fear is if I go in and ask for a replacement, they're going to say it was my fault and not replace it, and disallow me from adding applecare on top of it. Super frustrated on this one.
