Freddie - R U SRS?
My original iPod touch that I bought last year began faulting (sticky home button and then completely dying when there's a full battery), so I took it in today to the Apple store. They swapped it and gave me a whole new unit. I took it home, synced it, etc etc.

Then I noticed three black dots on the screen, near the top, and in close proximity to each other. Doing research, they seem to be 'dead pixels' and not 'stuck pixels' because they are black.

Should I take the iPod back AGAIN to try get a replacement? Or should I just live with it (even though they're so annoying now that I've noticed them). Will the dead pixels spread?

As soon as I'm working again, I think I want to buy the new iPod touch with the camera, which is why I'm hesitating to go back to get a new one.

Take it back to get a new one. I'm assuming when you get the camera version you will be trying to sell the older model so it might as well be in perfect working order, even if you are just giving it to someone better to have the opportunity of a new shiny perfect one to give them.

So true, when I sell it I want to get as much as I can for it, since it will be a newer model cause I got my old one swapped. Cheers!

I'm with wasanifu in this one. It's their own darn fault they gave you a crap replacement (Honestly, I'm surprised they swapped you for your faulty one!), and they might even recognize you when you go in.

Yeah I gotta hand it to Apple, they're pretty good with customer service and will swap the device outright if it breaks instead of fixing it. Guy told me it was easier that way cause fixing it is just a big hassle.

I'll probably just call to make sure they do replacements for dead pixels, and then take it in. Thanks!
