    Is it just me or is there now a small border around the screen? It is like they resized the screen smaller and now the display image no longer goes to the edge. I can especially see it now when I am viewing it in sunlight. The white background screens don't look so bad, but the main screen with the icons, it is really noticable now. I tried adjusting my brightness, but that didn't help.

    I thought the same thing, after the 1.02 update. Then I looked at my gf's iPhone, which at that point had not been updated at all. It was identical to mine. There is a tiny border, always was.

    Cool, thanks for the reply. I have provided a link to a picture of my phone showing the border I am talking about. Just in case someone didn't understand what I was talking about.

    I don't know about you guys, but My phone barely has a border... Definitely not as wide as the one pictured here.. I could be wrong.. I need to take a picture of it.

    Thats normal when viewed under bright light. I've noticed it when I first got my phone and was looking at the screen under bright sunlight (phone screen must be on in order to see it).

    At first I was convinced mine did not do this until I got under brighter light and it indeed does.

    No it isn't. I have a 1.1.1 and 1.0.2 sitting next to each other. Under bright sunlight they both have it. In fluorescent indoor lighting neither does.

    the pic he showcased is what they all look like when the phone is locked, once u type ya code it goes back to the usual screen.....

    It seems like people always try to find something wrong with their phone just so they can have something to complain about...... this getting quite annoying.....you can find a problem with anything if you look hard enough! but give it a rest!

    After the 1.0.2 update I thought the same, but I just think we don't notice until an update.

    This problem is real

    This is a real problem. Mine didn't have a border, then it did for a few days, then it went away and now it has come back again and it is bugging the Bjesus out of me. Does no one know what the issue is?:mad:

    The border has, is, and will always be there. There's nothing wrong with your phone, but it is hard to see if you're not in direct light. Sunlight will really make it pop out.

    I can promise you, your LCD screen is not magically growing and shrinking each night. I can think of no reason why you are seeing a physical object change size from day to day.

    If you are taking drugs, that might explain it. If you're not, then it might be time to ask your doctor for some.

    That's literally the only solution I can think of here.
