Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2008 1:26 AM (in response to MICHAELSD)I removed the SIM tray then put it back into the phone... everything seems ok though. I did, however, notice (before removing the SIM tray) that the SIM tray is not quite flush with the rest of the iPhone body... it sits ever so slightly below the surrounding plastic. Hmmm...MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Currently Being ModeratedJul 28, 2008 2:04 AM (in response to Boblive77)Hi,
I have the same issue as you. I have had mine replaced once already and it has the same issue. I am taking it back again but I think this is common. Not happy about it really when you look at how smooth the 1st gen was you expect at least the same quality if not better from a 2nd gen.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 28, 2008 2:28 AM (in response to MICHAELSD)My new iPhone, I could not even find where the sim holder was. I had to search the manual for info and I did not know about the sim extraction tool in the box.
When I knew where the cover was I had to use strong light and my strong reading glasses to see it, it was really that flush.
There was no hole for the sim tool or paper clip that I used, not realising that a sim tool was on the box cover. I had to punch through to reveal the hole and actually break out the sim holder.
Not for the faint hearted with a brand new precious object in hand, but it had to be done and now the hole is very obvious and the aperture is very clear, even with my normal glasses.Packard Bell iPower x8640, Windows Vista, 2,4GHz Intel Quad 4GB R 2TB HD 2Vids

So is yours now flush or not?
I kinda feel like I am being too fussy but after having a 1st gen that was just about flawless it is a huge disappointment to have this problem.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 28, 2008 2:50 AM (in response to MICHAELSD)Well, I`ve seen the "Wear Test" on Youtube and i can say, I was pretty impressed, I mean ... the screen still broke, but hey ... try not dropping it face down on the pavement will ya :)) ? And of course, the aluminum looks better than the plastic, but with the white version, scratches will be harder to see.
