    Hi. Wondering if others are having issues with some small squares appearing randomly and blinking when scrolling or accessing the memory. It seems to appear once in a while and disappears as soon as I change the screen and come back to it. It's definitely not a stuck pixel and it doesn't appear during movie or photo playback. My guess is that the display driver is causing some momentary glitches. Luckily this seldomly appears and restoring the iPhone using iTunes didn't fix this problem. Wondering if I should try to exchange it. Please post if you have similar issues. Thanks.

    I'd go exchange it...unless you see those blinking squares when looking at anything else also, then I'd go to an optomologist :p

    If you are talking about the checkerboard pattern you sometimes see when scrolling in Safari, that is normal.

    Unfortuantely no. It's a different type that just randomly appears in various applications, but not when viewing video or photo. It quickly disappears once I switch app and return to it.

    I'm afraid I may end up with worse problem with the new one. I don't have any stuck/dead pixels or frequent crashing issues so I'm fairly happy with this one. I'm just afraid that this display issue may get more frequent or cause problems later that I have to send in my phone for Applecare.

    Thats what sucks, when one part works well something else goes wrong.

    Thats life I guess, or iLife in this case....sorry I'm bored.

    I'd still exchange it, but I don't care about 1 or 2 pixels. I would care about crashing, but it doesn't seem like a massive problem. And if it did crash multiple times, I'd just exchange it again.
