    Exchange it at ATT. Or take it to the Apple store and exchange it.

    Sure, but you might have to settle for a gold one. ;). Check the apple site to see if any stores in your area have any. Alternatively, check best buys website. If you can find a store in your area with availability, return your original to ATT and go buy it at Best Buy.

    Why do people always feel a few specs of dust entitles them to a replacement. Just use your phone bro!

    Well good luck finding a perfect one. I can guarantee you that a "perfect" iPhone doesn't exist. Your replacement might have more dust in the screen, or in the camera, or loose buttons ect....

    Quit whining and just enjoy the phone!

    Lol I've had a perfect iPhone so to speak. As long as it doesn't have dust in the screen I'll be happy. Not much to ask for just QC

    My iPhone has a 1mm hairline scratch on the back under the apple logo straight from the box, my phone has a case on 24/7 so wasn't that fussed.. Feel lucky I didn't get anything worse! It does however have a bit of a rattled near the camera/wake button, gonna see if it gets worse before I run back to apple as it's not that noticeable..

    Dunno why you're getting heckled. I'd do the same thing, and most people would.

    Apple devices are bloody expensive so why settle for a defect you didn't put there yourself? I'd have done the same!

    Lower resale/trade-in value, for starters.

    Glass and screen are bonded. There should be no spec if dust.

    When Apple touts the Retina Display as a huge feature of the phone, you expect that display to have no flaws. If I were to sell you a 4-door car cause it's more convenient than your 2-door but then you found out that the back doors didn't open -- would you "Just drive your car bro"?

    My wife currently has a PERFECT 32 gig silver 5s. I am SUPER observent and know most of the common flaws with the iPhones (light leak, dead pixels, screen discoloration, loose/non-functioning buttons, odd clicks, cosmetic problems, etc.) This thing is PERFECT (for now) ha ha....

    I can guarantee it will not stay that way... :D

    Most likely the floating component that deals with auto focus.

    If you tap the back near the camera, it should sound like something's rattling, and it's definitely not a fault.

    clearly you have never had dust under your screen. What a stupid comment. You wouldn't be upset? Yeah right.
