    My sleep/wake button on my 32GB 3GS is slightly slanted, as in the left side of the button is almost flush with the top of the phone. Is anyone else experiencing this on their 3GS's?

    my touch 2g has that. If it bothers you take it to an apple store and they could probably pop it out or something.

    It doesn't really bother me, I'm just afraid that the sleep button will end up not working. Also, can it be my case? I have a speck candyshell.

    Isn't it the curve on the corner of the iPhone. Making it look like its at an angle, but it's actually level.

    I compared mine to the pictures of the 3GS on the Apple website, and the ones on the apple website definitely are not depressed or slanted.

    I think I can ignore it, but can it either be caused by my case, or will the button will stop working?

    I suggest,
    Any sort of problem, tell them.
    It's a good way to get a brand new functioning phone, or to get it repaired.
    Better to be safe than sorry.

    Imagine when your warranty is out, and then the button stops working, then you are doomed forever and forever amen.

    So yeah, I suggest you go to the store and get it checked.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I think I'm just going to leave it be for now,and if I have any more issues, I'll bring this up at the Apple Store, since I'm afraid the replacement I get will have more problems then my original.
