    I just realized after 3 weeks of having my new 3G, that there is a dead pixel right in the center of my phone. Will AT&T replace it?

    No, but Apple might. A replacement for one dead pixel seems a little bit OCD, but if you want one they should accommodate you.

    i have now ipod 5gen vid, ipod touch 1st gen and 2nd gen, iphone 2g and 3g.
    also i use 23 aluminum cinema monitor.
    i dont have a single dead pixel on any device.
    my friends always says im the bad lucky one.
    anywayz, i donno about here but one of my friend in korea bought a
    24 inch new glossy monitor and it had 4 dead pixel.
    he brought it to apple and ask for the replacement but apple actually refused because there is no problem using it, and said he needs at least 10 dead pixels to get a refurb one.
    apple korea has the same apple care or warranty system.
    but still that was apple in korea so you should try at apple store.
    good luck

    I went to Apple in july concerning a dead pixel. They told me they would only replace if I had 3 or more dead pixels. But i'd try anyways

    You should still be within your 30 return period right? Tell ATT to replace it or you'll return it anyway.

    I appear to have a dead pixel as well. I've had my phone since the day they were released, but noticed maybe a week ago a spot right in the middle of the screen. It didn't look like a dead pixel, but wouldn't come off either. I just today decided to replace the screen protector, thinking it was something on or under it. But now I think it must be a dead pixel. Right in the middle, and now that I know it is there, very annoying.

    I may try and get it replaced since it has cracks in it also, but everything works so good I hate to replace it.

    99% of iphone 3G have at least one dead pixels. If it really bothers you get it replaced.

    Always a day away
    Think about the lack of logic between these two statements.

    You might get one of the 1%, you never know.

    Mine turned out to be dust under the glass, I don't see any dead pixels. 1% I guess:D.
