Hello everyone,

I have a problem with my Iphone 3G I recently purchased - only one week ago.
I didn't notice it until I finally got hold of WiFi and sat down to play with it for the first time.

When I touch the phone, especially the edges or the space close to the recharger entry point, I feel a slight electrical tingle. Not really a shock but a slight discharge through my body. As I hold on to it up to half an hour, it keeps on going and finally my arm starts to feel like crap and I feel like I'm Magneto for the next two hours or so.

So, I'm ofc taking it to the maintenance immediately as I can, but I wanted to ask does anybody have any experiences or ideas on it?

Battery leaking? Overcharged by a bad recharger or a faulty model?
Shame I skipped too many physics classes.

Thanks in advance.
