We've received a new set of photos from a White iPhone 3G owner in Newport Beach, California confirming reports that small hairline cracks are also visible on the back and top of his device similar to other reports. Is this an anomaly? Is it possible that a trend of case cracking may be starting with the White iPhone 3G model? Several Apple stores we called were unaware of the issue when asked about it by phone.
"The cracks are closer to the top of my iPhone," the phone's owner said, "Nothing is showing up towards the bottom. I didn't drop my phone, that suggestion is a load of garbage." In reference to a report citing user care is at fault. "I am looking into Sellys crack spackle." the phone's owner jokingly said.
Our source, who asked not to be named, purchased his iPhone 3G on July 11th admitting that his device has sustained a few minor surface blemishes since he insisted on going bare-back with his phone. It's reasonable to expect some wear and tear on any hand held device, but multiple cracks in the casing seems a bit extreme this early on. [Crack Spackle video after the jump]
