Hello all...

My fiance and I both got iPhone 3Gs at launch (7/11). Her phone has been just fine and mine has been exchanged a few times for various issues. I noticed on my first phone (and on her current phone) that the ringer switch had/has a lot of resistance when switching it towards the silent position (downward).

On my current iPhone, I noticed that the switch moves a lot more freely and without the resistance that her iPhone or my previous iPhone had; it is a simple click.

My question is....is this normal for her iPhone ringer switch to have high resistance or mine to be more loose? Thx!

It's kind of hard to say without seeing it - you could always go and compare it with the in-store display phones.

Mine is easy enough to switch with my thumb when holding the phone in my left hand - but at the same time, I can't see it accidentally getting switched on.

Thx guys. Does your 'click' when switching it in either direction?

Cheers!
