Rumor Mill: iPhones Developing Cracks

Rumor Mill: iPhones Developing Cracks

Oh, after waiting in line for hours and barely being able to pick up one of those sparkling iPhones, rumors are starting to pick up stating that the first batch may have a plastic cracking problem. Well, at least the white ones do. The black ones seem immune or are invisible to the naked eye. Perhaps it's a temperature thing?

TYCORP says:

"I am having the same issue.
Already have a case with apple regrading it and the engineers are "looking into it"

Id rather they first acknowledge the issue (perhaps a problem with some of the case cast's) I don't just want a new phone that does the same thing in 2 weeks!

Attached are some of the pics of mine. Not first crack i noticed the next day after owning the phone (near the ringer switch) after the phone was charging a week later 3 more cracks were visable (heat issues, vibrate and headphone jack realted?)

Anyway i sent the apple engineers links to other threads that show people haveing the same problem, so they cant say its an isolated issue.
I baby this phone, and it sleeps on its cleaning cloth at night an on my desk when its not in use.
(BTW im on Rogers in BC, Canada)

Noticed one starting from the headphone jack as well. GREAT!!"
