Yep. With the psp there was an app you could run which ran through every displayable color and kept flashing. Im sure this will be created for the iPhone. I don't know how it fixes it but it did for mine.

No, I remember that all this did what tell you that you had dead pixels and showed you them, but no fix them. It will be a problem returning the iPhone, unless they have a 14 return policy.

OMG, For Real. This isn't a Sony PSP, haha. Lets say that you do get a dead pixel, you can return the phone if you are not happy with it. The first batch of PSPs had pretty low manufacturing and quality standards. Lets hope that Apple wouldn't take this route in order to increase the number of units they can produce for launch.

I think this lack of information has everyones mind running wild, just coming up with whatever they can think to talk about.

Dead or Stuck pixels are a fact of life when manufacturing TFT displays. The good news is that being a new device will NOT have any effect on the pixel issue. While there are certain to be some iPhones with dead or stuck pixels, it will not be any worse than laptops or cell phones in general.

Regarding how many dead pixels are required before you are entitled to a replacement is a policy that is strictly up to Apple.

I would not worry about it, as it's not as big of a problem as some people make it out to be.

The percentage of iPhones with dead pixels will be so small as to not be worth worrying about. if you happen to be one of the few people who get such a unit I am sure you will be able to return it. I have not had a stuck pixel on an Apple laptop screen since the PowerBook 540c days. That covers a few thousand machines that i have deployed for the various companies i hve worked for. Dead pixels on an iPhone are really the least thing to worry about.

I know AT&T have a 30 day, no questions asked policy on all of their phones. (as long as you don't run it over by a truck or swim with it, lol. Of course I hope no one would be that dumb to do that with iPhone.)
