    There are two little spots of light leakage around the volume buttons. I can only see them if I have the brightness turned up the whole way. My question is: what would you guys do? Would you exchange it and hopefully not get one with no leaks or would you deal with it? Also, is it true that a light leak can allow dust and stuff to go under the screen? That is my worst fear! Help please.

    Could you possibly post a picture of the issue?

    Nah I can't get a picture of it, the two leak spots are too small.

    I am the same problem. But it's not really a big deal to me. My light leakage is also where the volume buttons are

    I have an idea, dont turn your brightness all the way up.

    If I let the two small light leaks go will they like grow and become a bigger problem in the future?

    I have mine on 50 percent brightness and I do not see the light leaks. Only when I have the brightness up the whole way and I am in a dark room do I see the leaks.

    I brought it tot he apple store and they just gave me a new one. Funny story is my brother brought his new iPod too which he just had a question about. He took it out of the case dropped it, and it spiderwebbed the glasss. Luckily the guy was nice and he got a replacement.
