    I have a whole bunch of seperate dead pixels on the right side of my phone. They aren't noticeable but as many of you probably know, once dead pixels start, the dont stop. Has anyone had this issue? Do you think apple will replace my phone?

    A lot of people had dead pixels and Apple easily exchanged it for a new one. Bring yours back--they shouldn't give you any trouble.

    I have a dead pixel :(

    If I see another one, I guess I'll go see Apple

    repair your stuck pixels if apple says they dont want to warranty it, (IMO they should, no other phone costs $600 and it should be perfect when you get it, apple LCD's arent like this, why should your phone be?)

    here is the link.

    it doesn't seem to load on my iphone. either that, or it's taking its sweet time loading the app. also, the stuck pixel on my screen is on the bottom bar where the page back/forward and bookmark buttons are. there's no way the app would work on my phone.

    sorry i should of said that you have to convert the video, the iphone only supports h264, these "repair videos" were for laptops/psps/WM phones.

    also you need to resize it to 3:2 instead of 4:3 (iphone isnt a standard aspect ratio)

    i should mention as well, this will fix stuck pixels MOST of the time, not DEAD pixels

    3 semi-stuck green pixels, none of them major enough to warrant a return (in my opinion). All three are very close to the edge of the screen, and only show up when all nearby pixels are black (nearby meaning within like an inch, I can't even see them on the home screen even though they all fall in the black areas of the screen.) I can basically only see them when watching a video that's displaying a very dark scene, and even then I almost have to look for them to notice them. Shortly after getting the iPhone I noticed a very subtle red stuck pixel, though it appears that either it has since corrected itself, or I just can't find it anymore.
