Thread: Problem with my new white iPhone 3GS

    Default Problem with my new white iPhone 3GS
    Hey guys!
    I just bought 2 new 16gb 3GS last Thursday 6/25/09 for me n my brother. I decided to get 1 black n 1 white which i use the white one. Just a few hours into using the phone I noticed that it would occasionally drop all the bar with the 3G icon disappear n the screen would freeze for about 2 seconds. Having experiences with my first gen iPhone, I tried to reset all setting but it still happened. I've even tried to reset network setting only, restored the phone twice but it still happens. What worse is that sometimes my friends call me and the calls just don't go through (not even miss calls listed). All the time, i've checked my brother's phone (the black one) n there is no problem with his phone.
    I think it's the problem with the hardware part so Im trying to exchange to another one and since the news about the white one got overheat Im afraid the white units r having issues so Im just sharing my experience n hoping to have Apple exchange the unit for me.
    Do you guys have any problem with your 3GS so far?

    Well hopefully Apple will get you squared away.

    The "issue" that was reported by 1 person about the white housing is heat turning it brown....nothing to do with the color except that you wouldnt notice it on a black housing
