Is that a Fire in your pocket or just an iPhone 4?

Wow! Not even a month old and this iPhone 4 burst into flames as a customer had it connected to Apple’s USB charging unit. Not cool (pun intended). In BGR’s report of this issue:

…but the brand new iPhone 4 caught on fire while being hooked up to a computer using the Apple USB cable that accompanied the device. The customer wanted to exchange the iPhone — obviously — for a new, non-charred unit however the AT&T store in question was out of stock. An Apple Store did confirm to our AT&T connection that this did appear to be a defective USB port and not some sort of user error. Our source went onto say that the phone bezel was extremely hot (obviously), and it slightly burned the customers hand.

So if you are having issues firing-up your iPhone 4 or notice that your pants are ablaze, you may want to head to your nearest Apple or AT&T and get that puppy changed out.
