    I had to reboot my phone tonight and once the apple logo came up, I notice a dead/stuck pixel just to the left and below it. It kind of irked me. It wasn't like that before and now it is. Why would it just die all of a sudden? If I leave the phone off over night would it help fix it or is it gone for good?

    It's not noticeable at all during normal day to day use. However, I can't ever have a black screen. It would be very noticeable. :(

    Any suggestions?

    Sometimes it's possible for a pixel to get stuck shortly after manufacture. If it irks you and the fixes don't work, get it exchanged.

    I have a messed up pixel at the bottom right corner of the screen that I just noticed a couple days ago after owning the phone for almost 2 months. The pixel changes color when I rotate the screen back and forth (white, blue, red). It's soo small though and in an area that I don't really stare at that I'm just going to ignore it. I did try the pixel fix thing with one of those youtube videos but didn't work.
