    Well I do notice the yellowish tint but that's normal.. I only see it on low brightness.. That doesn't bother me though I think the display looks perfect.

    HOWEVER, the real issue I have and I believe I should take it to the apple store and demand a new one is that my flash Doesn't work. I've tried wiping and restoring as a new iPhone. Resetting the settings and wasn't this issue supposed to be fixed with iOS 6.0.1? I work at best buy mobile and I had a couple of customers return at the beginning because of this, even a very famous person which I was star-struck by seeing lol but anyways, my flash just doesn't work. It never flashes, and in the beginning it would seem like it flashed but I would take a picture and it flashed but like it flashed at the wrong time because the picture wouldn't be lit up. I'm very angry at this, since I spent 900 dollars on the 64GB off contract.... If anyone has any suggestions towards what my next course of action should be please let me know

    Problem with the earpiece. Sometimes when somebody calls, i can't hear the caller but they can hear me. Pressing on the bezel below the earpiece and above the screen fixes it, so hardware. Unfortunately, there's no apple store in my country so...

    1 - I trust you have tried turning auto flash off and then on again.

    2 - have you tried the light itself? Get a flashlight app and see if the app turns on the light. If it doesn't, the light is definitely broken.

    If no. 1 doesn't help then return the phone.

    Yeah I did all those things, the light does come on when I take the first picture lol but the following pictures it never comes on!

    It does work because my flashlight works, I'm guessing its something to do with the camera app?

    Just started having a problem with the personal hotspot a few days ago. I use it to connect my ps3 to the net and play online or Netflix, etc. Well as of a cpl of days ago, the connection constantly drops every few minutes then starts back up. I tried using my computer and download a file and it does the same thing. The connection drops quickly then reconnects, but the few seconds it disconnects causes all connections to drop (pc, ps3, etc).

    It's quite annoying to have to constantly log back into everything and restart a download whatever I might be doing.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Do you stay in the same time zone or travel to different ones? I think it would be odd if you stay in the same area and the time is wrong sometimes but correct at other times (I assume). I do a lot of traveling and when I land in different times zones sometimes it takes awhile to adjust to the correct local time.

    Same time zone has this issue since I bought it in opening day.

    On my 4th swap... and according to the apple store guy, my last swap they will allow me to do. First 3 either scratched, chipped or had serious battery issues. Got my 4th and final swap today. And after getting home and inspecting it. Have noticed the top part of the aluminium ( Black Model ) around the top where the power button is, that the colour of the black is completely different. Much lighter, and is quite noticeable. Does not match the rest of the black on the back or bottom. I honestly dont know what to do anymore?

    My iPhone 5 has not wifi synced in weeks if not longer and now it's started not syncing when plugged into my laptop. I don't know how important this is as it backs up every night but syncing it just won't do. I have renamed it and my iPad and checked the box in iTunes for wifi syncing.

    I have a new iPhone 5, activated a week ago. Facebook app crashes after about 10 seconds every time it is opened using my account. I have uninstalled and reinstalled more times than I can count, I have rebooted the phone numerous times, and I have spent hours with Verizon and Apple techs, not to mention the techs where I purchased the phone. I have repeatedly reported the problem to Facebook, but, of course, have not heard from them. I have even returned the first phone and set up a new one. Facebook app still crashes. Last night the Verizon tech suggested I login on a different Facebook account. I did this using two different accounts and they both work perfectly. I reinstalled my account and it crashes. I mirrored the settings of the Facebook account that worked with my account and it still does not work. ANY suggestions as to what is causing this problem -- is it a setting in the Facebook account? should I hard reset my phone? should I deactivate and reactivate my Facebook account? Seeking help.
