I think that your lens is, or appears, to be scratched.
Is it reflected in the pics taken with it?powerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.6.1), airport express, iphone 3gs, iphone 4, ipod, ipod touch

You could make an appointment at the local genius bar to have them look at it or call them to ask about repair options and prices.powerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.6.1), airport express, iphone 3gs, iphone 4, ipod, ipod touch
Currently Being ModeratedOct 16, 2010 1:30 PM (in response to josh vanslam)After reading this thread today (I have the same problem) I found a site that sells a replacement cover. It was only $5 (ish) including shipping.
It looks very easy to do yourself. I heard it was easy to take off the back of the iPhone4 so I tried it before ordering. It's so simple. Search in youtube for a video to help you. Short version is remove the 2 screws at the bottom, slide the cover up slightly (1/4 inch?) and it pops right off. Easy! Next you have to pop out the lens cover from the back glass. This proved to be much more difficult as it's glue in there. Be careful. I just kept working my fingernail around the lens cover on the inside of the back of the phone. Eventually it came out fairly easily, I just had to work at it. Then I put it all back together & am awaiting my replacement lens cover to swap in.iPhone4
