Thread: Dead Pixels

  1. #1
    Default Dead Pixels
    I just noticed I have a couple dead pixels, so I'm planning to bring my phone in for a check up. Currently I'm using a jailbroken 2.2, should I just do a complete restore before I bring it in?

    You will also need to have an AT&T service plan. If you don't, they(Apple) won't even touch it. I had a similar problem, where I needed a new digitizer, took it to Apple, and they informed me that I would have to have an AT&T plan on it. Well I have T-Mobile, and was not about to switch over, so I bought a new iPhone, and said to hell with them.

    What does the AT&T have to do with APPLE'S product warranty? My gf took her phone into the apple store and it had no sim inside and she just got a new one right there.

    To the OP restore it.

    Since I have a first gen, and Apple's stopped production, they wouldn't replace it with a 2nd Gen, would they?

    Don't they have an application in Cydia that supposedly fixes the dead pixels?

    Pixel Checker (available in Cydia) claims to check your damaged pixels and try to fix them.
    Haven't used it myself though.

    Well, thanks guys. for future reference, just restore it. If it's under warranty, they'll replace it, no questions asked.

    btw, none of the pixel "fixers" worked for me.
