    Since 6.0.1, my phone's screen has been full bore. Auto-brightness does not work at all. Before, this phone's auto-brightness has been flawless. It (I don't know if I should attribute it to the phone or 6.0.0) has functioned better than any previous iPhone or iPod touch I've had. Now, it doesn't work at all. The only way I can even get the brightness to go down now is to either restart the phone or turn off auto-brightness and manually adjust. VERY annoying.

    I am not sure with 6.01 but with 6.0, it would sometimes go all the way dark if I did something like lock the phone while it was in the middle of something (like exiting an app). I havent used it enough to see if it still happens with 6.01.

    Maybe you just didn't encounter it in 6.0, but it was not working right. Worked perfect prior to 6.0 for me.

    Sometimes with things of this nature it's worth trying to reset the phone--basically via the method of holding sleep/wake and home buttons together for a while until the Apple logo appears and the phone is rebooting.
