If this happens to mine I will s***. I am really not happy at all with the 3g, which is the reason I still haven't sold my first gen. Terrible...

If this happens to mine I will s***. I am really not happy at all with the 3g, which is the reason I still haven't sold my first gen. Terrible service, slow 3g(this is probably ATT's fault), shoddy gps, phone seems to lag...a lot, and now the cases are cracking. At the rate we're going, the next "feature" will be that they catch fire randomly.

anyways, i havent had cracking but my dang silent button fell off the second day i had it, i thought about sending it back but i wanted one soon so i figured id wait a lil bit till they were easly and widely available

the new 3g is not better in signal strength, in fact it is worth comparing to the 1st generation iPhone, also the phone response sucks

so far so good but if my iPhone, something I spent $300 on, just cracks by itself I am going straight to apple and demand a replacement cuz that sh*t is unnacceptable

damn, that sucks. glad i kept my 1st gen.
07-31-2008, 05:19 PM #28
I'm damn glad i still have my 1st gen around, I have the white one and I haven't sustained any cracks so far... I might just switch the sims out...

I haven't had mine in a case since the day it came out and I've got no cracks
07-31-2008, 06:15 PM #30
no cracks, dropped waaaay more than it should
I have no cracks so far. It's fallen out of my shirt pocket plenty of times. Yesterday my gf took my phone away because i was doing something on it. She put it on her lap, when we went to leave she forgot about it and it fell on hard tile. I'm glad it didn't crack!!! Oh yeah, i forgot to put on the case also.

I've had mine since the first day it came out also, no cracks at all. It all comes down to how you take care of it. I've seen people with 1st gen. Phones who have bent and cracked them. It is what it is, the phone has better speakers , real gps, and faster Internet (3g). With a plastic back, so if you take care of it you should be fine. Get a cover if it worries you that much!

24% Cracked Poll, this number doesn't look good at all!!!!!

no wonder its cheap...apples quality control yet to blame again..
i guess they didnt really test them that well..could be that the plastic backplate is made out of cheap materials..

My macbook has cracking issues too...this isnt a surprise, deffinately a let down but not a suprise. My iphone looks a-ok for now though thankfully."Choosing the lesser of two evils...is still choosing evil." - Jerry Garcia

Yes yes yes yes!!! iCould careless, iStill have my first gen iPhone, thanks to AT&T high data rate. i'M good with payin' my $70 bucks a month and my 1,700+ rollover minutes. iHope this dilemma forces Apple to go back to the lab and redesign this sucker. iDon't know why they didn't toss a camera on the front and a 32GB model. Apple iS over there stuck on stupid iTell you.

Don't sit on your phone and you'll be fine. No cracks here. Sick of hearing people saying that 1st gen is better, when in fact it is an inferior product. Stop trying to justify that your 1st gen is better just because you can't afford a new one or didn't get out soon enough to get one.

I have a 3g on order from ATT but with all of the cracked phones, I'm tempted to send it back when it comes in.

I feel plastic is better than metal.. both my Iphone 1 and Cannon camera;s with metal cases look like crap after dents, dings, excessive scratches... etc
THe plastic versions of each simply hold up better. No dents, no dings, no cracks under same abuse as the metal versions... Thin metal should not be used on anything that is a case for someting... DUH
