damn that sucks, no you cant fix dead pixels, their DEAD. If its not too noticeable then leave it, if it bothers you ALOT then i would go exchange it for another if you can. But I wouldn't want to pay $600 for a phone and have dead pixels on the screen.

In the past, Apple usually reviews dead/stuck pixels on a case-by-case basis. 1 or 2 is usually not enough for replacement but if they're really annoying (say right in the center) you might be able to plead your case.

It's just the nature of the manufacturing process. The stink of it is, you have just as much chance as getting one that's even worse than the one you have now.

Dead pixels do sometimes com back to life. My MP3 player had a dead pixel, and after about an hour of playing with it it suddenly started working.

I doubt they would give you an issue returning to get a new one, after all there is still a 14-day return policy. If they don't' replace, you can just say I want full refund!

I too have a dead pixel, its almost in the middle of my screen. Now that I've noticed it I can't stop looking at it. Its really bugging me. I'm going to go see what can be done about it.

i don't have a single problem with my phone sine i got it. Crosses fingers
Me neither. Not with the phone, activation, anything. VERY satisfied and impressed with the iPhone. Best 600$ i've ever spent. lol
:cool:


I think Chris is right....there's really nothing they can do about dead pixels (in store), besides just change out the unit...

Yep, I just got back from the Apple Store. They looked at it, agreed that it was a dead pixel and promptly exchanged for a brand new one. Great customer service (as always).

Now to hunt this one for any lazy ass pixels.
