    I am waiting for Apple to send me the replacement phone number 6, I haven't checked what week is it before, this one says it's either week 22 or 49.

    I agree with Glenzymc... I don't know how right I could be but I don't think an iPhone's serial number ends in 3 numbers or 3 letters, mine doesn't.  I haven't seen any light leakage but I have seen the green issue with ALL of the models I've had (and still going). I do believe it's something to do with static electricity because it is very noticeable when taking it out of my pocked, have also replicated the glow it with the palm of my hand. This is the last replacement hopefully.

    I'm going on to my 4th iPhone 5 now it's very annoying.

    The reason for me believing it had something to do with the s/n ending with TWD is because I know 8 other people with iPhone 5's.

    6 of them people have the green glow and all of their s/n ends with TWD but the other 2 people never had this problem with their iPhone 5's and their s/n ends with TWH and TWF.

    I have the same problem and i've changed my phone, but it's still happening. My friends have iphone 5 and nobody has the same issue.

    Mine just started doing this. Has everyone had luck getting their phones replaced?

    I would recommend to contact Apple and provided your handset is still under warranty,  I don't see why they shouldn't replace it.

    My original iPhone started displaying this issue back in October, 7 replacements later (I know, 7 of them!) the problem with the green glow seems to not being present on the one I'm using right now.

    Good luck.

    Yep. Got an appointment Thursday to hopefully get replaced. I hope they don't give me a hassle with it. It's a pretty minor issue but I didn't pay all this money for the thing to have problems!

    My iPhone 5 serial number ends with TWD and doesn't have the green glow.

    Also, I figure it's been long enough that the replacement phone wouldn't be coming out of a old old shipment, right?
