    Anyone else having this issue of the recent iOS5 update corrupting the screen. It's made my iPhone 4 unuseable as the screen flickers and doesn't display properly.

    Two full restores and reinstalls of iOS5 :(

    Have yet to see this, I would search around the web or website and see if anyone is having this problem.

    If not, go to apple

    Definitely not jailbroken. Just an honest iPhone that tried to be updated today and paid the price I think :(

    Apple is usually very lenient with these types of things. If they try restoring your phone with iOS 5 and the problem persists, you'll probably end up with a new phone!

    That would be a good result. Anything as long as it starts working again.

    Are you setting up as new or restoring from a backup?

    Restored brand new iPhone from backup and it works a treat :)

    Thanks Apple. Great customer service.
