    My phone displays weird rainbow colored horizontal lines on the display. I cannot seem to replicate it and it doesn't happen all the time.

    It does seem to be limited to the AppStore application when inputting my password. I also cannot capture it using a screenshot which leads me to believe there is a display hardware issue.

    Sprint White 16GB purchased from 3rd party location.

    Here are a couple YouTube videos I found that describe the issue exactly. I'll see if I cannot post some photos of my device.

    A few people on here have reported this problem: perhaps it's the glue underneath the screen that has yet to dry? I really am taking a shot in the dark here but maybe?

    I'm having the exact same issue as the OP.

    Only happens when inputting the password for the App store.

    I've tried applying pressure in different spots around the phone in case I was "holding it wrong" and couldnt replicate the issue on any other screen.

    I would think this would be software related if it only happens on that particular keyboard popup.

    I have no idea...I heard a couple other people having the issue as well.

    My fiancé also got the same one and she doesn't have the issue.

    Same problem here...

    Hi, I have the same problem, exactly as it mfldmike describes.

    A row, or two with pixels errors which appear in different situations. :(

    If the error occurs again (and he appears frequently) I will add a corresponding photo.

    Greetings from Germany...

    It's a known issue that will be fixed in 6.0.1

    Too many have reported it happens only at the App Store while inputting password so it must be a software related issue. My device does not show this aberration but a friends does every time.

    Strange.
