    So I got my new phone today, and still have my AT&T phone. Can some people who have the same help me out.

    Put both phones on full brightness.

    Is the Verizon iPhone considerably yellow. I am looking at the yellow when I'm in an email, thats where you see it the best.

    Its the glue they use at the factory. Your phone is fresh off the convey belt. Give it time and it will go away. Mine had the same thing.

    Also if it's not blotches, it's possible that they are simply using two different LCD panels with different color temperatures. Once you get used to one, the other one will look "wrong."

    This will not go away. The other poster is referring to some small yellow blotches on the screen. I believe you are referring to an overall yellow tint to the screen.

    That is a defect, and you need a new phone. Go into the Apple store after the 10th and get it swapped out. You 100% need a new phone, don't let anyone try to convince you to justify it somehow. You have a nice clear screen on your other phone to compare it to, thats what it should look like.

    Nonsense, there is no "iPhone display". Some are more yellow, others more blue and others more red.

    No, yellow screens are not caused by glue. That's a stupid thing to say.

    No, this is not glue. It is the screen. It is a warmer color. My old 3gs was very warm and every white page looks yellow. I hated it and i'm so happy my ATT iphone 4 is very white. It sucks, I have heard that almost all the Verizon iPhone 4's have yellow screens.

    Yellow blitches and color temperature are two entirely different things.

    The first ATT iphones with yellow screen were because of the glue still drying. This was talked about a LOT on the forums and I remember people reporting it going away in a couple of weeks. It is not a stupid thing at all. This is not a new phone, what ever issues happened with the ATT version will happen with the VZ version.

    I offered my advice to wait a week. If not then it is a clear decision to get the phone swapped. I don't seem harm in that advice.


    Exactly who asked what I should do with my leisure time?

    So lets get this straight, you are giving the OP advice for a phone that you do not even own. Please stop and get out.

    I used to own the phone up until last month. My iPhone had a problem with a yellow tint which is why I recommended waiting a week. If not sure swap it.

    If you have an Apple store nearby, go to them and just show it to them and talk to them about it. Take the name and time date etc. of who you spoke with if they say it will clear up. If it don't, go back and ask for a swap out. I'm sure they will oblige.
