    do you have another "full retail" location w/in 1 hour? if not, i'd give apple care a phone call and find out your options.

    Hi all,

    I just bought mine iPhone few weeks ago, it has the newer LCD (version 7520768) and it manufactured on week 52.
    What do you think? Is my iPhone in bubble-danger?

    I am really concerned..

    Thanks,
    Boris

    ok I have had bubbles since about the 4th month I have owned the phone and I bought day one. I went to the Genius bar today and they gave a replacement phone. I said I had the bubbles problem. They asked if I had ever dropped the phone. They gave me a brand new phone and said they were working through the remaining stock since the phones were no longer being manufactured and they had no refurbished phones left. I started with one bubble and had three when they replaced the phone. After 356 days I have a NEW iPhone. Apple Service isn't always perfect but they really rock!

    On a side note, after I said I had not dropped the phone he looked down the head phone jack with a small magnifying device similar to what the Dr uses to look in your ear. He also peered around the base of the phone specifically he stuck the device beside the inner charging/syncing waffer-thingy. Does anyone have any idea what he was looking at or for?

    probably looking for water damage... there's apparently a water-sensitive substance in the head phone jack that turns pink/red if it gets damp.

    Interesting...I recall 2 bubbles under the glass that just appeared one day with the original iPhone I purchased in November. I've since gotten 2 more and replaced the sim, but that's another story on another post.

    I never really thought too much about the bubbles and the guys at Genius didn't even mention them. I take great care of my phone...kinda like the egg project way back in school...I never dropped it and was always very careful.

    I have been ignoring my one bubble in top left by signal bars, but now he has a little baby bubble and I think I need to exchange. Should I wait for a few weeks to see if I get a new 3G version?! BTW, I bought in December - seems like after about 5 or 6 months a lot of people are getting bubbles. I hope I can get a 3G out of this if I wait - although they probably keep some refurb old models on hand for this occasion...thoughts?

    Not much you can do. If you live in Italy you're using a hacked iPhone. Your warranty is void. Sorry.

    You can buy an iPhone 3G when it's legitimately released in Italy in the next month or so.

    Justed talked to Apple, and they were nice enough to tell me they will be glad to fix it.. For $199. Need to send it in. They say they are aware of the problem, but not going to do anything about it. Thanks Apple.

    My iphone's display has a huge gray bar on it and i cannot see through it. It looks like the display is distorted. How can I fix it?
