I just found two very small ones, they don't bother me so I am keeping it. However do you guys think I should return in for another one? Its been about 2 weeks and I just noticed. Please tell me your opinions.

Well, if you don't see it after reboot, then it's not a dead pixel, it's just calibration related issue, could be fixed by software update.

A dead pixel is something permanently on the screen. My first phone had one very bright dead pixel and 3 other sparkles, I took it back within 14 days and got a new one.

If you don't feel comfortable with it, you should take it back since it's not really a "cell phone" or anything with only 1xx by 2xx screen size. It's something you paid over $600 and you are gonna use it for a very long time.

I had one, and it drove me nuts. It wasn't the screen's fault, though.
It happened right after I had a kid jumping around on my lap, with the phone in my front pocket. I think the pressure of him standing on it, may have had something to do with it.

If you return it and get one with zero dead pixels, you're just going to be further inclined to sit there and nit-pick every pixel on the screen, believe me. It's such a dismal existence being so damn meticulous. It drives me nuts. lol

i had 2 and i freaked out and went to the Apple store the day after i got my iPhone, they returned it with no problems. as long as its within the 14 days after u bought it they return it with no trouble at all. they will probably return it after the 14 days if the dead pixel is like right in the middle of the screen.
