    There have been reports that the yellow tint was due to a bonding agent that dries over time, causing the yellow to disappear.

    Mine has a yellow spot on bottom right. It was very noticeable yesterday but has become less obvious. But it's still there ( especially using the Settings brightness screen as a backdrop.) I don't know what I'll do - maybe wait till Monday. Sigh. I waited in line for 5 hours for this. Can't see accepting a lemon. :(

    I also have this yellow tint on the top left corner of the display. I am on day 3 now and I wake up to it gone, but after some use it slowly fades back in, then I leave it a while and it fades away to be just barely visible (which will always bug me if it remains like this), I am hoping a few days like this and it will work its way dry/cure.

    I had an appointment with the Apple Store genius people today but I've canceled it, as I doubt they will have any replacements in the afternoon of the first shopping saturday after its release. I'll give it a week and if its still there ill set the wheels in motion again in getting it replaced, as you pay good money for these things and it shouldn't be a dud like some of these are.

    It sucks a bit being in limbo and having to prevent really enjoying it (as in loading all the things on and customising it the way I want) when I know it may have to be returned pretty soon.

    ho-hum, lets see how things turn out this coming week.

    Same thing for me as the two prior posters. Barely visible when I wake up, and then reappears with use. Will head to Apple Store next week if it doesn't go away.

    i have the yellow stuff too. 3 or so at the bottom but they seem to have disappeared. however, there are these 3 spots on top and an elongated one that goes vertical from to about maybe a quarter of the screen down so it looks like it forms the letter T.

    usually when the phone is resting, the top blotches aren't there but when you start using it, it starts to reappear again. it's very noticeable when the phone is hot. i was studying outside and it was i think around 90+ degrees F and i noticed that all the spots start to reappear, with the top ones being REALLY noticeable.

    i really hope this goes away but i did get my phone friday so it's been only 3 days. going to wait a week or two then i'll start making calls i guess *fingers crossed*. everything else is in perfect working order though.
