    My iPhone has had a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen since the day I got it. Will apple replace it or does it have to have more then just one?

    No. One dead pixel is not a severe problem. If you had a whole line of them across the screen then they would probably replace.

    You could always call or go in to find out. *shrug*

    In my experience as long as you can replicate the problem, in this case show them the dead pixel they will replace it.

    They should and will most likely replace a phone with a dead pixel. It is a defect and therefore falls within the warranty guidelines.

    Make a genius bar appointment and exchange it--in my experience, as long as you can demonstrate the "problem", it's highly likely they'll swap you out no questions asked.

    My screen is perfect--I checked various colors using the free MyLite app, first thing out of the box, as I had heard about the yellow spot issue. If I had a dead pixel, I would not live with it. This is not like a widescreen TV that you're viewing from 8-10 feet away. I would think a dead or stuck pixel would draw your eye to it, now that you see it.
