    Default Dead pixels? Maybe your iPhone just needs a massage.
    After dropping my iPhone, I had some dead pixels. Just an area on the side and a blob toward the bottom. No biggie. But throughout the week, the blob extended a line all the way across the bottom of the screen and eventually spread vertically. Today I noticed a line across the top, and I'm like this is enough. So a quick Google search and I found out that if you simply massage the screen, they'll go away. So I tried it, and right before my eyes the pixels started to turn red. In the article I read(link below) they mention that the red spots take a few days to go away. Hopefully soon I will have a like new iPhone again! Just thought I would share this for anyone having pixel problems!

    Default hmm
    seems to be working so far. it wont get a big blob, but little patches and around the blobs. few come back, and im hoping ill be able to eliminate those as well. i'll see how it goes. i used the app from cydia that flashes 5 colors to fix it for 48 hours straight. didnt help at all.
