    Hello,

    I just got a replacement phone today for an issue I was having with reception on my iPhone 4. I then compared my phone to my sisters on full brightness, and noticed that my phone's screen is extremely yellow. Do I have a right to a replacement? Will Apple claim it's within manufacturing tolerances? Will they give me a refurbished phone or will they just try to replace the glass? Any tips greatly appreciated.

    It's not the "spot issue": the entire screen has a horrible yellow tint! I would replace it, I wouldn't tolerate such a thing!

    P. S. What are the first five digits of the serial number on the yellow phone?

    you wouldn't tolerate it for just 1 day to see if it would go away on its own (saving you the hassles of replacing the phone, again)

    give it a week or so. this is a common issue, must have to do with the screen glue or the white Led yellow filters "warming up"

    Give me a break. Its always amazing the stuff people will come up with to defend apple.

    Op you have a defective screen. It will not go away. Get it replaced.
