The same used to happen to the White macbook. However, Apple claimed that it was my fault and not the over heat.

I like the posts talking about black to keep it dirt free. Like a black car dirt will show up more on the black iPhone. The white iPhone will reflect light making it hard to see any dirt but a black iPhone that absorbs more light will make you able to see all the detail including the amount of dirt.
I hope this guy gets his iPhone replaced, I am thinking its just a defect in his phone.

"besides the sound issues reported before."

Damn one guys phone is waterproof and the other guys phone is overheating!! Suggestion: don't use your phone by water or use it so much that it burns through your hands!

Well, Ive had the white for a week....no burn yet. It doesnt really get that hot.

This won't deter me from getting the white one. My white 16gb 3G never had any issues so I am getting the white 3GS. Naturally there are going to be a few bum phones manufactured. It happens with every product that is mass produced.

I agreee, just like the WII and the Xbox 360, they are both white and look like old white plastic after about a week.
My 1yr old black Iphone still looks like pure sweetness no matter how close you are and I quit using a protector months ago and looks great, dropped it in Lake St. Clair two days ago, dried it out, still going. Apple = Impressive.
But, think about it, if you get white then every 3 months you can get a new phone because of the "overheating" image on the back. Any white plastic I've ever seen turns brown with age, so add a little heat to it and it's just going to happen faster.

i wonder if they decided to do what Trent Reznor did with the Year Zero CD, and that whenever you put the disc in a CD player, the heat from generated from the CD player turned the disc from white to black...
Cause that would be kinda cool actually, having a white phone turn color based on heat...
Or a black one turning white...
just a thought...
Okay maybe not :-PHerp a derp a derp a doooo!

Fido is already sending me a new 3GS because of a small chip on the screen that wasn't caused by me. I only noticed the backlight issue 2 days ago. Woe is the life of early adopters!
I was on the fence on launch day on whether to get a black or white 32gb. I did a quick search with my old 3G while at the counter which pissed a few people off behind me but hey, it was a big decision.
I'm not a big fan of the white but the salesperson was trying to convince me they had better resale value and they were harder to come by blah blah blah.
I ended up with the black because i had a feeling the white would show a lot of grime over time (like my old white MacBook). I'm glad I did after reading this post!
