    I noticed this small black dot on the lower right corner of the phone that is visible on white and other light backgrounds. Is this a dead pixel? It is not visible in black backgrounds.

    Probably... when i got my first iPhone 4 it had 5 dead pixels... they replaced it for me the next day... so head on over to the apple store ^_^

    More than likely, I think there may be some apps that can fix this. Otherwise, take the phone to your local Apple store and they should swap it no problem. Apple does good at taking care of their own.

    i don't think software can fix a dead pixel.....


    Make sure you try to restore your phone before you go in... they're going to ask you if you did that.

    Most likely I will go to apple. I am just trying to see how common the problem is. I just hope the replacement has none.

    You're right none of those worked for me. I tried for about 30 minutes and no luck. Black dot still there, it is very small and on the menu bottom bar.

    Nope, a dead pixel is just that - dead. Those apps are useless unless you have a stuck pixel. Two different things.
