Re: dead pixels on pre screen

i took my first on in not for a dead pixel but a light spot that would develop as the screen would warm up.

Re: dead pixels on pre screen

You will have little tiny white dots on your screen where there should be color.

Re: dead pixels on pre screen

I have one dead pixel on my current unit, but it's up at the top in the taskbar and I don't even notice it so I'm willing to live with that but my slider is separating from the back on this one and I had one hulba time in the Sprint store trying to figure out what we were going to do. I won't get into that story though.

I'm more concerned with the deteriorating condition of my slider. An authorized tech at a franchise store tightened some screws for me while I was in there today, which didn't fix it, then when I went back to the corporate store, as he advised, to get a replacement, they tried to tell me that what the tech had done had made my phone ineligible for a replacement... and on and on... I have to go back tomorrow and talk to the manager at the corporate store.
