    Hi i got an iPhone 3GS a few days ago and i have just noticed 3 small dots on the upper left hand side of the iPhone that are only visible under light they are to the left of the speaker at the top of the iPhone, i don't know whether they have been there the whole time. They look like they could be bubbles

    Does anyone else have these? Trying to work out what they are

    Take it to apple. It could be a defect or large pieces of dust

    are they like perfect circles and exactly the same to each other? if not try scrubbing it really hard. if it doesnt look natural then take it to an apple store and have it checked.

    Thought that might be the case cos all three look exactly the same.

    Correct. They are so when you hold the phone to your face the screen shuts off. And for the auto-brightness setting.
