    Default External Iphone Defect?
    Ive had my iphone for a little more than a month now.
    I unlocked it in 1.1.4, and I love it to death. If it ever broke, I would probably save up and buy a new one. I currently have it in an iskin, the ones with the plastic visor that snaps in over it, just so I can feel like its getting maximum protection. BUT whenever I take it out, to clean it or whatever, it feels like the silver part, just around the screen, is loose enough to pop off, and the Bottom part, thats black, isn't centered correctly( very unnoticeable) , and whenever I press it inwards, it seems to make clicking noises as in almost squeaking, because when I push it in, it had room to go in, ( its loose ) and yea. I presume its just a faulty iphone shell, like when I bought it, because I handle this thing with absolute care. But yea. Do you think that if the shell were to break off in the future, and if I were to restore it, that they would trade it in or a new phone at my local apple store? or would that be one of apples infamous "loupoles" ( how do you spell that?). Or just share your opinions. I dont really know what to ask. Im just a little frustrated over this, and I had to make a post about it...so yea...

    I've had 3 different iPhones, and two were exactly like you were saying. There is a small clicking whenever I push in on the bottom (Black) part of the phone. They don't perfectly line up. I don't think it'll disconnect, because there are brackets on the inside that hold them together.

    Long story short, I wouldn't worry about it.

    (Picking up phone to check) Thank God all is secure and tight. I havent had any problems with the casing. Although the power button and home button has become loose over time. But thats expected. I have dropped this many times allbeit on carpet but it makes a thud

    Aslong as its not insanely loose, should worry about it, the iPhone is pretty sturdy..

    If you are pretty concerned, take it over to the Genius bar and have the Apple people take a look..but its not neccassary

    Thanks guys. I took it out of its casing today, and moved around the back ( not smart ) a little, and it hasn't done what Id earlier described since. Of course the home button is still a little wobbly, but thats expected. Thanks again!
