    Default UK Iphone two dead/stuck pixels? Easy to replace?

    Hi I bought an 8gb iphone from Carphone Warehouse I just recently realised I have got a couple of dead pixels.

    I want to replace it, I have got the receipt and everything, would they replace it? Should I restore my iphone and take it in?

    My iphone is software unlocked would I need to provide proof that I have activated and am on the O2 price scheme? Or would they just replace it?

    Or could I take it to an Apple store and ask them to replace it? Would it be ok to take it in restored?

    Well from what I gather. People in the US who had even one dead pixel had their one replaced - no questions asked at the Apple store. I think this is due to the fact that Apple don't have a minimum dead pixel policy in place. If I was you - go replace it asap. If they say anything kick up a fuss that it was a present for someone else and that they were so disappointed and you were so embarrassed. You can just say they didn't get a chance to activate it because they saw the dead pixels and were disappointed. The dead pixels would be visible from the emergency call screen anyways, so it wouldn't matter if you activated it or not.

    Definitely restore your phone before taking it in. Don't give them a reason to turn you away because you jailbroke it etc.
