I finally decided to go to my local Apple store to ask a replacement unit today. I found one dead pixel and other 3 sparkles on the upper left corner of the screen, honestly they aren't that bad, it's just that every time I turn the screen on my eyes are automatically looking for those spots which make me crazy:)

Waited about 1.5 hours I told them what I needed and a genius take a look at the phone and handed me a replacement unit, the SIM card has been swapped and he gave me a new recipe which has the correct SN number on it.

Took it home, sync with iTunes and all data has been restored. The other thing I'm gonna look at is if the battery glows after been fully charged.

amazing that how we have been on the same boat......
I also found one dead pixel and I have been through the same exchange process, as well as restoring everything once the new one back onto the cradle...... One happy camper! :cool:

though, I had an appointment setup the day before at the store so I did not wait even 1 min.....

There was another guy waiting for the exchange as well, except he claimed that there were 8 dead pixels (sparkles) on the screen.

But think about this, there's a chance that the replacement unit is worse than the original unit, and I don't wanna go through this all over again.
