Large speck of dust on camera lens?
Was taking a few photos and noticed that they all had a rather large speck of dust/artifact near the center. (Photo attached, you should have no problem seeing the issue).
Do you think it is too soon to get to an Apple Store to get it taken care of? I live about 40 minutes away from the nearest Apple Store and really don't want to waste a trip.
Barring that any ideas on maybe how to remove the dust/artifact?

I can't speak for all Apple stores, but I know the one in Baton Rouge, La had some in stock for this purpose only. In fact there was a lady in there while I was having my MacBook Pro logic board replaced getting her iPhone 4 replaced. I asked what was wrong, she said the home button never really worked properly. She said she had to push it multiple times for it to actually do anything. Anyway.. they swapped it out no questions asked.

Did as you suggested ghostface147, took the back plate off and cleaned the camera but the artifact us still there. So looks like I will in deed be taking it in for an exchange. Before anyone asks I checked it out before putting the cover back on … no dice

My 2nd replacement ip4 had this issue, I showed it to the apple store employee and politely asked for a different phone.
He came back a few minutes later with a new phone that has been working perfectly.
In case you want to know why I had a replacement phone in the first place.. I got that "no sim" message and took it in to the apple store and they offered to order me a new one.
