    so my iphone has a stuck pixel pretty much right in the middle of the screen, i know its a stuck pixel because sometimes it flashes(which means its trying to go back to normal) and then there are sometimes its goes solid yellowish green. Its kinda of small but when ever i want to watch a movie with dark scenes its really BAD! I hate it. I've tried all those websites for the iphone that tries to repair the screen with different flashing lights, but it never works.(trust me)
    Anyway do u think apple will give me a replacement, for just one pixel? But see this is different i think because its right near the middle which really bothers me.
    Oh and i live in Canada so i cant go to the apple store as they don't sell iphones, Rogers store does, but would they give me a replacement if i went right in the store?

    You should try the PixelChecker app in Cydia (I think that's what it's called). It's much faster than any website (since the website is...a website).

    nope, you said 'I've tried all those websites for the iphone that tries to repair the screen with different flashing lights, but it never works.' Did you try the PixelChecker app on Cydia? From what I know Apple generally only replace when a certain number of pixels are bad.. they might not change it for one, though it's worth a try...
