In November of 2011, I purchased my iPhone 4S at a Sprint store. As soon as I took it out of the box, I applied an HD Anti Glare film from Power Support which has a frosty coating to it, which takes away some screen clarity. Everything seemed fine with my iPhone until I recently removed the film to apply a Crystal. At this point, I noticed that my iPhone has two dead pixels. I read somewhere that Apple's policy on dead pixels is that if an iPhone has one, they'll replace it. I don't have Apple Care, but I'm still within the one year warranty that comes with the device. So my question is, even though it's been nearly 6 months now, will they still replace it free of charge? It's not a big problem, so if they don't, I'll just stick with it. But, if they will, then I rather do that and have a perfect screen.

I have a piece of lint, or something behind mine that covers a strand of pixels, not sure if they'd do anything about that.

If you are still under warranty and the genius does acknowledge that there is a dead pixel, they will replace free of charge.

Okay. Thanks for the replies everyone. Now I'll just give it some thought about whether I want to go ahead with it or not.
