    My 1 year old iPhone 3G camera displays a faded red hue circle in the center of captured photos. Sometimes it is worse than others.
    Any suggestions

    Could you post a picture showing the red circle? Also, if you use the camera and point it towards the sun, does the issue get worse? I'm thinking that it could be lens flare.

    Have you checked the camera lens? It might be discolored or scratched.

    Hi, thanks for your reply, how do I paste a copy of the picture here. All I get is a textual reference to where it is.

    Did you get yours replaced?

    I just got a refurb replacement that has this exact problem. I've attached some photos.

    I'm getting really sick of these dodgy refurbs.
