    This isn't a huge deal, but I'm wondering if anyone has any info.

    You know those "unused" pixels bordering around the main LCD area? See pic if you don't (not my pic).

    Is there a way to "shift" the main UI around? I just noticed my UI area is not centered on the LCD and I'm wondering if there's a way to "tell" the iphone to draw the UI a couple pixels to the left.

    I searched and didn't find much. Any ideas?

    Those aren't unused pixels. :)

    Really? They sure look like pixels to me - how do you know?

    Those are not usable pixels. You cannot move the screen around.

    Are they built-in protection pixels? Like, in the event that some pixels are bad, they can use the others (and hence my un-centered screen)?

    Or are they not not LCDs pixels at all?

    They're not pixels at all. Chances are the screen is centered. I used to think my screen was off center... it turned out to be an illusion from the way the iPhone glass casts a shadow on the LCD panel making it look off centered depending on which way the light was hitting it.

    Hmm ... well my UI is definitely a bit to the right, but it's not a huge deal.

    I just figured there was a way to "re-calibrate" the image and put it a millimeter or two to the left.

    Wow what a stupid question

    Do you honestly think you can have a borderless frameless LCD screen:rolleyes:

    Read my original question again, I mean ... if you can read, that is.

    Quit arguing unless you are looking to get booted. Trust me it's not fun.

    ugh fine, look OP what you are asking is simply impossible given the hardware that Apple uses

    apple uses a standard LCD module that is rated at 320 x 480 pixels. The panel is not made at 322x484 and then cut back to 320x480, it is A PHYSICAL LIMIT.

    All LCD's have have borders around them, here is the Iphone panel

    what you are looking for is a frameless LCD technology that has yet to be proven ( or incorporated) into any consumer product

    I honestly responded in that manner because the OP kept replying with simple minded responses, despite the fact that others on this board had given him the right answer ( otherwise known as being dense)
