    I never had this happen to me before but I leave my iPhone in my pocket where it seems to work fine. There was some funky marks I believe behind the screen which was annoying! Im not sure if it was condensation from cold to hot or how moisture got its way in, but is there anyway to fix this? At first it was really bad and went away!
    I tried the blow dryer, air compressor, rice (Not long) but I thought just leave it and it will go away. Been 2 days and its not as bad as before, but still noticeable! Nothing is improveing, its actually spreading again....
    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys for the help.

    Now I cannot return it to Apple, I read that link posted above (Good job!) and I am going to try it to see if I can fix it.

    eBay was mentioned and buying a new screen. Well its a 1G iPhone (16GB) and I think u need 2 different parts to fix the screen...?
    How about this link
    http://cgi.ebay.com/iPhone-LCD-Scre...4|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:0|293:1|294:50

    Its very pricey! lol Can someone direct me to what I need to purchase if I wanna replace my screen?

    Im at work now and am going to be away for a few days. I will try to post a like for a good place to get the screens at some point this weekend. I cant think of the site off hand, but there was a site that had them really cheap.

    Heres a good start if you want to shop around

    I tried pixelchecker from Cydia, nothing changed. I think I made it kinda worse trying some of those ideas from the links above, too much pressure lets say LOL Doh! Hmmmm
