    I have noticed a small White stuck pixel on my touch. I con only notice it on a black background so I suppose its a "Hot" Pixel? Is there any way to fix this? It's kinda annoying.

    Upload a plain white .BMP to your itouch, then leave it like that for an hour or so, plugged in of course. Disable autolock, make sure it stays on the screen.

    On LCD displays this method unsticks stuck pixels.

    Just make a 320x200 blank white BMP in MSPaint and upload it to the Photos application using iTunes.

    It's a dead pixel, and there are free apps in the app store you can download to fix it.

    Like what? The BMP thing didn't work and I found no apps in the app store to help with hot pixels.
