    That's right. I picked up the gel skin at a T-Mobile store today. Charging my phone tonight when I smelled a burning rubber type scent. Lovely.

    I just noticed you live in Portland. Don't let those hippies catch you burning rubber and melting the o-zone! :p

    I've noticed this a few times with mine as well. I think it is getting better though.

    No smell on mine! I really like the case, it's much better than the case t-mobile made for the G1 (too sticky). Adds a little heft to the phone, making it feel more substantial.

    Interesting. I notice it when it's plugged in at night and I am still playing with it. It doesn't happen every time but I have noticed it 3 or 4 times.
