    I was just using my iPhone, downloading an App from the appstore, when I discovered that something new had been added to my screen. This was an artifact or a dead pixel. I have no idea why it came, and it wasn't there before I started the "EliminatePro" app.
    I have tried to restore it, but it makes no difference at all. The dead pixel is always there as long as the screen is turned on.

    Under you'll see a picture, which is not that good because it is hard to hold a camera still.

    It's coincidence, it's a stuck pixel. Considering the pixel isn't dead there is a possibility it will go away in time but I doubt it. You could try a stuck pixel "fixer" to see if that works, just search on youtube and you should find something. Personally I'm not convinced how well, if it all those flashing videos work. I've never had them fix a stuck pixel whether it be on a monitor or on an iPod/iPhone. If it's under warranty and it bugs you, considering how obvious it is, Apple shouldhelp you out.
