You're right O.J. Simpson. This is an epic failure on Apple's part. I'm sending Steve Jobs an email right now and I suggest everybody do the same.
How can I determine which series I have?Connie - half the iPhone V1s had the 7 series screen, which is lower quality to the 5 series. If you had a 7 series before, you may not notice a difference (which is actually a good thing, because you'll enjoy your 3G more).

Just thought to drop in and check if anyone of you have restored your iPhone 3G yet? I also noticed that my new iPhone 3G had a yellowish screen, but after I did a restore (due to other reasons though), the screen looks to be even better than my iPhone 2G!
When I did the restore via iTunes, it downloaded a new version of the firmware (2.0, 5A347) and after the restore it looks like the colors are fine! I could be wrong here, but at least it seems so. The shipping firmware on the iPhone 3G is (to my knowledge) 2.0 5A345. After the restore, I didn't load up the previous backup, just to make sure that everything is reseted. I only care about my calendar entries and contacts, which will be thrown to the phone when you sync it.
