    Hi Guys,

    I bought a used 4s with this vertical black line in the screen, at first i didn't mind it was there, but i was wondering if this is something i should be worried to get worst.. the phone works all right apart from that.

    Does someone have any idea what's the problem here? should i be worried?

    That's a pretty straight line of dead pixels. Could be someone pushed too hard on the LCD and damaged it. Check and see if it still has any Apple warranty:

    If so an Apple store will take good care of you. If not, look for a reputable local repair shop to get a new LCD in there.

    Unfortunately the warranty expired... I may have to take it to a local shop if the line gets worst... Do you guys believe it will? If it stays that thin, I won't bother with the repair...

    It's hard to say if it will get worse or not just by looking at a picture and without knowing what the exact cause is. If it isn't bothering you just keep an eye on it and take it in if it does get worse.

    Yea it probably won't get worse but if the connectors to the other adjacent rows are damsged then its a matrer of time. No way to fix that without new screen and that could cost a pretty penny. Good luck!

    A lot of friends have this horizontally through their iPad screen at school. Seems quite common.
