Hello!
I dropped my iPhone
There's some scratches at the back, but
it's not the scratches im worried, I seeing a gap on the left side
inbetween the back side and screen, when I press it down the gap is
closing in but once you take the pressure off the gap goes back.

How to make the gap close in?

My guess would be that the case needs to be snapped back down. If you are not jailbroken, take it in to a Apple genius and see if they can snap it together for you. It can't hurt to ask. They might tell you that you are SOL, but when I dropped my v1 and that happened, they got the case snapped together for me.

wait wait, will they do this for free?
Apple might replace the unit if it is defective and there is no appearance of physical damage. If they decide that the damage is causing the phone to malfunction then they will likely charge you a replacement fee.

Is there any way to post a pic of the gap? You might have some luck repairing the damage is you take the phone apart yourself but that of course will technically void the warranty.
