    ..Yeh...but, what about mobile web surfing.
    2G sucks.

    No GPS...

    And the headphone jack is stupidly recessed.

    And - im guessing the Yellow Screen will be replaced at Apples cost...

    Also from another site they are talking about taking the iPhone 3G apart and they are saying how the G3 is put together differently. (maybe to save cost or who knows what)
    Who cares what I say hahaha back to the iPhone.

    Hahahahahaha

    Hmmm, so if all iPhones have this?? How many do you think, are they gonna replace :P Like, they won't replace all the 1million (approx figure) they've produced, because of a cheaper display.

    I'm almost always near a hotspot.

    GPS....... like you don't know where you are standing.

    I use bluetooth, what headphone jack.......

    TBH I think they were made this way on purpose. On a bunch of other sites, blogs, talkbacks, like, macrumors, engadget and whatnot.....it seems everyones is this way, but only noticable when compared to their old one. I wouldnt count on Apple replacing them, it seems it was done on purpose, perhaps to cut costs

    Although Moore states every two years computer chips get better and iPhone only has been out for a year. Newer things will always be better than old. Still, extraterrestial technology is some cool *** **** to have!

    soon this phone too will be jailbroken and that's even tighter.

    Well I hadn't noticed the yellow tinge until you pointed it out.... now it's really bugging me

    When you comapere the two side by side, the new one really stands out...in a bad way.

    But wouldn't that affect Video quality? Everything will be toned Yellow...almost like shooting videos without white balancing

    Its sad. I want 3G n GPS....but I also want crystal white display.

    As for the guy who said, the display looks finer, I doubt the resolution has been improved.

    7 to 3 right now in favor of yellow screens. Man, if this keeps up, the 3G iPhone will be remembered as a lemon at launch. That's really unfortunate for all of you that are getting one today.

    wow, this is the exact fuel that the people who didnt get the 3g need right now.

    i might use my gps tommorow to take me to my local apple store, but before i do that ill use my blazing 3g internet speeds to find the stores phone number.

    none of which can be done on 2g.

    Well the same thing could be said about the first gen iphone, that screen is tinted blue alittle bit..

    If enough people complain to apple on their site maybe they would release a gamma type setting in a future update

    @ reeko, its not fuel M8. Its a disappointment to hear that the screen is yellow. I personally did NOT get a 3G iPhone, but I certainly don't want to see those who did have this kind of problem. I was as excited as anyone for the launch and have been here all morning to read about how great the 3G iphone is. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case.
