    Default 3GS Overheating - myth or fact??

    I was going to buy a 3GS White iphone however notice in the news a big fuss about the white version discoloring to brown due to it overheating!

    Is this a rare case/myth?

    Anybody any personal experiences of this happening or NOT happening?

    Cheers!

    Mine discolored beneath the screen... That one was no myth.

    Apple says that it was a short on the USB -> Dock Connector cable though... maybe, maybe not.

    Either way, new iPhone for me, and now I need to go through that garbage of repulling everything so that I can jailbreak going forward.

    Cheers for your reply Adrian. Sorry to hear that about your new phone!

    I guess yours was a white one??? I guess for a safe bet it would be better to go for black??

    Ive had mine since launch, no discolorations yet and it does get pretty warm during games and such. I have an invisible shield on mine though so maybe I just dont notice >.< slight changes in color

    Seems to be the odd few then!

    So hows the battery life over previous models? Same or a noticeable difference??
