    Okay, now this is getting a little out of hand.
    I got my iPhones dust ridded screen replaced at the apple store a mere 2 weeks ago, and now this new screen is messed up again. LCD discoloration, dead pixels, and now 1/2 inch long pieces of lint are under the glass. I can't express enough how annoying it is to go to the apple store every 2 weeks. I drive a big suv, that runs premium fuel! The apple store is a 30 minute drive, and I can hear the engine slurp the gas. They've never replaced the phone, so I think I'm going to say something is wrong with the battery, and get a new phone. I think having the screen replaced 4 + times is a little bit of ********. Anyone else experiencing a similar problem?!
    Thanks!

    That's hecka cool.
    But here's the thing. I don't have free phone support anymore, but I am still within the 1 year warranty.

    You can still call. They will understand that your issue can not be fixed with troubleshooting over the phone and they will be happy to send you a box so you can ship your iPhone to Apple.

    Yes, if you're still good to go with applecare then all it takes is a phone call.
    Its not phone support, you're just doing an exchange thru the mail.
    They will give you more details.
