Is it the whole bottom black part? The cover? Or the actual mic?

it's only a small part of what's covering the mic. I'm afraid if it breaks anymore the mic itself wil fall out, the phone is already acting weird!

On the back of the phone, is there a big gap on the mic side where the black cover, and aluminum meet?

Are you sure it just didn't get bent while you were removing it from the dock?

I've never heard of that happening, but its a possibility...

A little piece bent off and is almost falling off. I cant push it back it, it keeps poking out. Isn't this really isn't my fualt. Shouldn't Apple replace it? knowing their products damaged it in the first place?

I think they would replace it if this was a well-known problem occurring with many iPhone owners.

But most likely, if you're out of warranty, Apple won't really care unless it's some manufacturers defect thing.

Sorry.

I don't get it, its not my fault, i had to push it off the duck because some part of the dock caught onto that little piece and broke it off! If it has happened they better replace it. I'll throw a real ***** fit at genius bar because I do not want to walk around with a broken phone that can probably be loosing pieces through that little crack

Well, then I don't think there's much they can/will do, no matter how big of a "b**** fit" you throw...

Lol, all well, Some local people here in Orlando told me they can give my iPhone an entire new body for 100. That's fair enough for me.

my local Apple store told me that as long as the phone didn't have water damage and wasn't completely shattered, they will let you buy a replacement v1 for $199. Better deal than a new case for $100.

I'll have to raise ANOTHER 200.00 for another iPhone I guess. BUT THEY BETTER NOT EXPECT ME TO GIVE IT UP FOR THE NEW ONE! UNLESS THEY DISCOUNT THAT PRICE! I hate this! I am jobless at the moment, my friend's dad handed over the restraunt to some other guy for I believe.......700,000? And I can't apply at a store until April! I am 15, and i gotta be 16 to work in retail stores. :'(
