    I shows up more when it gets hot (games or charging). Any tips on getting it replaced at the store? I figure I'll wait and see if it gets worse, and get the most out of my waranty. BTW...I replaced my original when it was supre buggy and crashed all the time. That was in July. The serial lookup tells me this one is covered until About August. Does my warantee expire 1 year from purchase or 1 year from when I got the new iphone?

    Imagine a normal looking screen with a brownish yellow streak on it. I really notice it more in bright sun too. You can even see something there when the screen is not on. Like the LCD panel got dark so when the backlight goes through it the color is off.

    Any news?

    Did you find a way to fix the spot, or get the phone replaced? I have the exact same issue, a big yellow blob in the lower right hand corner....:mad:

    It's a simple fix really --- EXCHANGE THE PHONE!
