Anodization is a pretty poor selection for a durable finish on an item that's going to live in an environment with sharp edged items like coins and keys. It's a very hard finish, however it's also very thin. Like the crust on a pie, it's harder than what lies underneath but easy to break through.

Don't u guys remember the iPhone 4 antenna problem and how apple pretty much ****** every one that got one by giving bumpers for like 3 month.
I think that Apple is the only American company that don't do no recall.

Yeah my phone also has a tiny scuff. Since I purchased mine through AT&T I went to Apple and they told me to go back to AT&T for a new phone. I went there and they told me it will be weeks before they can ship me a new one. In addition, the AT&T store manager advised that I file a claim through FedEx I looked at him just like the idiot that he was. The scuff wasn't caused by FedEx poor handling it came from China that way. I was not happy at all I want to scuff my phone no one else! I'm going to try another location.

Now that's a sore eyes to see...Well that's a very common problem with Anodized Paint, they get Scratch and Color Fades EASILY! Better take them back to the Apple store for a replacement for those who got this scuff problem...

The edges on my wife's white model scratch with almost no use. It is clear the edges are not going to hold up. Barley noticeable on the white unless the light hits just right but on the Black model this will be much more noticeable.

What happened to quality control? Every phone I have seen on display has ding or chips in it. I have dozens of anodized fittings on my bike motor and never have had any issues with the finish thinning out or chipping and they have thousands of miles on them.

Another one. I then ask who is going ship the phone. They said
UPS again and I ask if I can pay extra for Fed Ex they
said they can't do that. I then said cancel
my order. Now the prob is I can't go pick one up at the
Store until my cell eligibility has been reset. I have been
Waiting since Satuday. The thing
that sucks is that my local Apple store still had phones last
Night. And I can't pick one up. Thanks UPS for ruining my

Well i called apple today. And they will send me a new one. Yay. I've seen somewhere that you have to send them pictures but nope they just reconfirm shipping information and blah blah.

Well, I have a white phone and just noticed today that on the right side near the sim card the metal band is scratched slightly. I have not had my phone anywhere but on my desk as I had only begun to use it yesterday. It's upsetting as I always have bad luck with phones one way or the other.
Since I ordered from Apple I assume I should call them for a replacement, or should I call AT&T? I will definitely do this in the morning.

Add me to the list. I even inspected my phone - or at least THOUGHT I had - right out of the box but I didn't know about these scuffs until Saturday. I looked it over again but still managed to miss a small ding on the lower right corner of the white phone's aluminum band (a coworker and I decided to look over each other's phones to see if we had any scuffs). I'm debating whether or not to exchange it as there is nothing else wrong. I just don't want any foolishness from Apple down the road if I needed to make a warranty claim and they see this mark and try to pin on me as physical damage...

I will have a replacement phone sent to me by Apple and send my current one back when I get the new one. Let's just hope there aren't any issues this time around.

I hope I only have to do this ONCE. If not I will keep returning LOL.
What was the other 5% that was bad?
My current phone is perfectly fine except the super tiny scratch. It's not a big deal but I want no defects on a new product. If I would have done it, different story.
