    I got another 3GS replacement yesterday and already hairline (but eAsily visible cracks) have appeared around the speaker mic and dock holes. Is anybody else have this problem?

    Take it to the Apple Store. They should replace it.

    I haven't noticed such cracks, but no that you mention it, I'll take a closer look.

    Edit: Upon inspection, I don't have any scratches.

    I think I can live with it really, it's just a bit annoying...

    ok well the bits that were cracked have now started chipping, it just looks messy now, i dont understand how this happened because its literally been in a case since i got this unit (already had 2 replacements :/)

    Any cracks will eventually get bigger. Get it to the Apple store and say "WTF".

    as i just had a look on mine as well i do notice some small hairlines, but it aint that serious..
    But would it be best to get an replacement now? rather then waiting for the cracks to get bigger, because cracks do always get bigger by the time..?
