Iphone 3g 8gb replacement back cover

Found 4th Apr 2010
Has anyone replaced this? At the moment I have a crack near the connection port at the bottom of the phone. Its about 1 cm in length but I know over time it will get worse. I havent dropped the phone so dont know where it has come from so I am thinking about getting a replacement back cover. Has anyone done this?

is it still in warranty? ive heard apple replace the phone because of this

try doing a search for this on here, there has been quite a few threads covering cracked covers on iphones

found one for you


I had mine replaced for free, out of warranty with the same crack, it's a well known issue.

I did create a bit of a scene in the Apple store, telling people to put the iphone back as even a £20 Nokia had a 2 year warranty.

Got there in the end though:thumbsup:

thanks all for the replies, I booked an appointment in my local apple store and they gave me a brand new phone without any hesitations!
Great Service.
