    Hey guys,

    so bascally my iPhone has 6 dead pixels. I find this completely unacceptable nowadays. However, I am worried that they will not replace it as I have a cluster of chips/deep scratches on the top right corner from a drop onto concrete and the sleep button developed some play from that fall. Will the apple store still replace it? The dead pixels came up before the drop, dropped it day after I discovered them :'(

    thanks,
    anthony

    try going to Apple, you will not lose anything. the worst thing that could happen, they did not replace it.

    If you get a guy in a good mood he'll replace your unit. I had my original iphone replaced 3x a few years back because of stupid stuff.

    Agreed. I think it is unlikely they will replace it due to the damage, but it doesn't hurt to try.

    Yeah next time I'm in an apple store I'll ask them. I'll also say that I've bought several macs and iPods (which I have) and hopefully they will see me as a valuable customer and replace it :)
