    Hi guys

    I have a problem with my iPhone 5, you get the story from the start.

    Thursdag 4th of October i received my brand new iPhone 5. I unboxed it but the fun-factor was short. After an hour of surfing on the web the screen started to show some kind of pink "flicker" on the screen. I just thought that it was some kind of software error so i continued playing with it.

    After 10 minutes i putted the phone on standby, and after 20 minutes i returned to use it again, but the touch-screen was dead. I tried to restore the phone with iOS 6, but it didn't help. I walked down to the store again and made a service case on it.

    Then Thursday 11th of October i received a new iPhone 5 from service. I wen't home and started using it and everything worked just fine. The next day 12th of October the screen started doing the same thing as the first phone. When i surf in App store sometimes the screen flickering in a pink color.

    The touch screen on the new phone is not dead (Yet), but would it happen?

    Do anyone else have this kind of problem?

    This pink flickering thing seems to be happening for a lot of people and it seems to be a software issue based on luck. Some people with iPhone 4S have gotten it too. The fact that your first screen died was pure coincidence. It's completely unrelated to this flickering issue.

    It'll probably be fixed in an update, don't worry.
