it says it is veryimportant to send it back. But they ship you the new one first, then you send them the old one. SO just say you forgot...but if it does break and something bad happens, its your fault.

I have never even used that power adapter. I'm using the USB cable thats plugged into my Mac. Actually I stopped using the USB cable that came with the 3g because it was scratching the side of the plastic. Currently using an iPod USB cable, which I prefer because it has those two triggers on the sides that retracts the medal pieces that connect to the port.
Here is more info:
Apple has issued a recall on the USB power adapter included with the iPhone 3G. Apple has received reports of the metal prongs breaking off of the adapter and remaining lodged in power outlets, creating the risk of electric shock.
According to Apple's support article on the recall, the adapter was included with every iPhone 3G sold in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru. The adapter was also available as a standalone accessory in those countries, as well as Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, and Panama.
Users with ultracompact power adapters should immediately stop using them until they exchange them for a new, redesigned ultracompact adapter.
In the meantime, they should charge their iPhone 3G by connecting it to their computer with the USB cable that came with their iPhone or by using a standard-sized Apple USB Power Adapter (with fold up prongs) or with a third party adapter designed to work with the iPhone, such as a car charger.
Apple notes that replacement adapters, which will not be available until October 10th, will contain a green dot on them in order to make identification simple.
Affected users may order a replacement adapter via Apple's web-based form or in person at an Apple retail store beginning October 10th.

So, I got mine. Came in a huge box.
Did anyone seed his old one back?

It's not in the letter, it's on the back of the shipping label - the one you're supposed to tear off in order to return the package (the prepaid return postage is under it)Comprehensive iPhone 2.1 FAQ:
