    I have 2 dead pixels, they are only noticeable when the screen is black (they are lit white) but it's driving me crazy. Any fixes out there I'm already on my 2nd 4s (the first had a buzzing problem). The problem is definitely minisule since the pixels are so small but my OCD is in overdrive.

    Can dead pixels expand? Right now it's barely noticeable but I'm worried it'll get worse.

    I have one dead pixel on mine but its at the bottom right corner of the screen so I could deal with it. However, two is one too many for me. Let us know how it goes.

    If I were you I would use the dead pixel to my advantage. Just keep the phone and now you have an insurance policy. Apple doesn't allow the iPhone to have any dead pixels so if you drop it and something goes wrong you can just then return it and say it's because of the dead pixel.

    Can you walk me through the explanation to apple on how you dropped it, the thing is shattered, and it was because of the dead pixel? "You see, the dead pixel scared the **** out of me".

    hahaha. i'm going to deal with it for the moment. its so small you have to go out of your way to notice it. i really don't feel like waiting for all my stuff to restore from the cloud (don't have a computer)

    if it gets worse i'll take it in.

    Obviously if the phone is not usable there is no point but I'm saying if something else goes wrong with your phone that isn't covered by warranty you can use the dead pixel to get a new one.
