I tried to get mine replaced, but was told "it's lighting that's causing yellow tint". Once 4.1 is available to the public, I'm going back to another Apple store and will try again.
Definitely try another store. My Genius said it was a known issue, looked at some pics and replaced it right away without any problem. Now, I haven't gone back to replace the replacement so we will see what happens then.

Just got my replacement today after the guy told me that I dropped it and that why it was snapping. He replaced it anyway. Build week 27, previous phone was 23. So far so good.

I just got mine and it's week 28. I am in the process of setting it up but what is the strip of Decker Tape Pad for? It's about 2 inches wide and about 5-6 inches long.

No idea. The Apple guy pulled everything off and just gave me the phone. The Apple store was packed.

That looks kinda yellow doesn't it?





Just kidding. Hehe.
Don't say that! But hey I've tried several times and I can get it to drop 2 bars at the most! :) in fact I've had a minimum of 2 bars and that was only once here at home. The rest of the night has been between 3-4 bars. I could consistently drop to 0 bars and no service before so the replacement gets early kudos!

I'm getting a replacement phone Thursday. I hope I get a week 28 or later. I went from a week 25 to 26 and I still have yellow pictures. I'm hoping this will be my last exchange.

Awesome, congrats. Glad you got it taken care of.

so are you guys going to the Genius Bar at the Apple store and showing them the Yellow pics and then they replace it or you shipping your iPhone in and getting it replaced?

Just curious

I have swapped twice now through the genius bar. Both for proximity issues and signal. The last one is by far the WORST and is a week 27. I called AppleCare today and they agreed to send a new one via fedex. Incredibly annoying.
