    I called apple support today they told me to take mine back to bestbuy and swap out for a new one. My problem is it locks up 2-3 x a day and I have to do a hard reset and also the wifi and Bluetooth connections suck to say the least.

    So I've discovered my second iPhone 6 has light leak through the mute switch and the top of the display is dimmer/warmer then the rest. It's not horrific but it's annoying me and IDK what to do at this point whether to learn to live with it or go gamble again.

    I would assume if you delete from your phone it shouldn't delete from your Microsoft account. However I may be completely wrong. To be safe I would just copy and paste all the contacts (hopefully you don't have hundreds) and just enter them manually. Again, you would only have to do this once.
    yes it worked for me

    Take it back I had the same issue with light leaking through the mute switch. Eventually dust will enter through to the LCD . The genius associate at Apple said a bad batch of iPhones have this issue and they will exchanged it

    You can do this easily enough yourself. Not the alert but you can switch cellular data off when you're at home. That will accomplish the goal of not using the mobile data allowance due to dropped wifi.
    Yes I know but rather than remembering to turn it back on again and off again each time you arrive or leave it would make perfect sense to have an alert that you are switching from wifi to mobile data and will not continue until you agree which in most cases will mean the wifi connection and it router will suddenly reconnect and the device will revert back to wifi anyways.

    Whilst turning mobile data off does prevent using mobile data at home it is quite a pain remembering to toggle it as soon as you arrive or leave...

    Go to an Apple store and ask for an exchange. No iPhone I have ever had showed a blue screen.

    I tried to make an appointment at the Genius Bar but the closest date is October 6. Should I just exchange it at sprint since I'm within my 14 days? Do I tell them it had the blue screen? I hope they will exchange my phone.

    There's a high chance Sprint won't exchange it as, to my understanding, warranties are covered by Apple themselves.

    Where the mute/ringer switch is located, when only switched to mute, you can see light leakage coming through the switch from the lcd when it's on. The switch is installed slightly recessed and this is the cause of the issue.

    I've noticed in my 2011 Mazda CX-7 Bluetooth will drop from time to time, and I get no track names with audio.
    Also my iPhone 6 won't connect with my mid 2011 iMac's bluetooth at all. It will pair, but not connect.

    Here's a tip. If you can goto an Apple Store do so and when you get there make sure you have wifi on and it should automatically connect to the apple stores wifi. Then open the Apple Store app and it should pop up asking if you'd like to get support. If not just manually go into the Genius Bar for that store in the app. You find that when you're on the stores own wifi you get real time appointments and usually cancellations or late attendees. I've nearly always got an appointment within a few minutes doing this. It knows you are already in store so can offer you an appointment within a few minutes which it wouldn't show from outside their own wifi network.

    Now with the LCD screen on, do you see light leakage from the mute switch? Remember, the switch has to be in the mute position. If so, then yes if not, you're good

    You'd know if you had the problem. No need to worry or look for problems where you don't have one.
