    So I have what appears to be a piece of a leaf or something under my screen, and it's huge. Right now it's stuck in the corner so you can't really see much, but sometimes it floats around and it's enormous. Will Apple fix this for free? I got it in February. Sorry for bad pics.

    That's what she said :cool:

    On-topic: Take it to Apple, that's a reason for replacement.

    Doesn't look ENORMOUS to me, Apple will fix it, but I highly doubt they'd do it for free.

    It's pretty big when it's not in the corner, I'd say it's a few centimeters in length and width. For a forum that complains about a single dead pixel, this thing looks like a mountain.

    oh wow that's really huge. What is it, half a centimeter?
    lol anyway I'm sure Apple will fix it, although I'm not sure if they'll do it free. It can't hurt to call and ask

    Okay, here you go, bottom right. It's not huge, but are you telling me you'd be cool with this thing floating around under your screen at all times?

    If it is under warranty, take it to Apple and you'll get a new one.

    lol yes, my bad a few mm. It's not enormous, but very annoying, I keep trying to wipe it off my screen. Also, there's a ton of specs of dust underneath the screen.

    Unfortunately this happens, and happens OFTEN with the 3G/3GS because the digitizer is not bonded to the glass. There's so many dust particles under my old 3G and 3GS it's insane. Thankfully this can't happen with the iPhone 4.
