    I left my iPhone 4 off for 2 days and when i went to start it up i noticed the black boarder pixles around the edges have grown and made the screen smaller.

    This happend with my 3g aswell. Has anyone else had this problem and how can i fix it?

    We need pictures.

    Or I'm gonna say that it's just a trick of the eyes, or you need your eyes checked.

    im telling the truth before it fitted around the edge perfectly, now its like a black pixle boarder about 1-2mm thick going around the edge?

    Ummmm yeah.... your phone is no different than any other iPhone out there. There is a small space all around the visible screen and actual display.

    Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    So take a picture and show it to us, or take it to an Apple Store, or find another phone.

    It's not just the screen. My iPhone 4 has lost almost 1cm in length since I bought it.

    They're not mocking you. They're just trying to let you know it's most likely just a trick your eyes are playing on you. There is a thin border on the screen. You probably never noticed it before because you were to enthralled with everything else about the phone, like all the rest of us. Once the newness wears off, you might start seeing things differently than when you first opened it up.

    Sorry, OP, but you are imagining things. We can't tell you how to fix a problem that doesn't exist.

    It has always had the small border just like all iPhones in the past. Lay off the hallucinogenics.

    You really need to relax. We have already told you that there is nothing wrong with your phone. So, no, it won't be fixed in iOS 4.1.:rolleyes:
