    i was sitting in my room today with the lights of and looked at the side of my phone and noticed that where the glass on the sides meets the metal band i can see the light from the screen, so i was wondering if anyone else has noticed this at all and if its suppose too be like that or not. and if you dont please give it a try it was close to completely dark besides the tv being on. and if it doesnt happen with yours do white iphone 4s come with 1 year warranties like the black do. thanks:apple:

    I've heard about light bleeding issues but mostly in the conversions...

    Never heard anything about the official ones bleeding though.

    i can see the light through the side of the phone, like where the side glass and metal band meet theres like a tiny gap and i can only see it in the dark, is that the same thing as a bleeding issue?

    I had this issue with my 3G. My only concern would be dust easily getting under the screen.

    If you're not satisfied, take it back until you are. To spend $650+ on an electronic device and it not be perfect isn't really acceptable.

    this, always mention how much you have spent. Its a damn expensive piece of kit and i would expect nothing short of perfection.

    I don't blame Apple completely, you can thank all the people that abused the system for making it this way. I remember I used to walk into an Apple store with a legit problem and walk out with a brand new device 15 minutes later. But so did the guy who microwaved his device because he got a scratch on the screen. The light bleed isn't supposed to happen, I would take it back and stay pretty firm on your want to get it fixed, don't be a jerk or demand anything, just recount how disappointed you are, and that you expected more from Apple. The right genius will do the right thing.

    if i took my phone too the verizon store would they be able too do anything for me? they also have the 30 days too take back your phone, so what if i take back my phone and pay the $35 and then get a different white one would that work?

    I am OCD about my Apple stuff, but again I think a new product should be close to perfect.

    I purchased a white iPhone and I noticed a couple small dents in the white plastic bezel around the phone. I dont like it and it shouldnt be there, but ill probably live with it because there are no dead pixels or other issues. For $650 though and the cost of that plastic part you think they would be perfect.
