    Call Verizon and get a replacement. My first storm had a dead pixel but it really didn't bother me much. It wasn't that noticeable.

    It wouldn't bother me as much if it wasn't almost dead center of the screen. I will call them and see what they say. With factory replacements do they get you the new one before you send the old one back?

    Are you sure its a dead pixel? I thought I had a dead pixel but noticed that its a part of the screen. Not sure exactly what it is but there is a grid of faint black dots. Gotta look real close to see them. Maybe someone with more knowledge can chime in.

    Depending on if its a dead pixel or its just stuck .. You might be able to fix it if it is stuck. I had a stuck pixel on my psp when I still had one and I got a video that quickly cycled between red green and blue

    May want to check google for something like this because it worked on my psp.

    I believe that if the pixel is black its dead and if its white its just stuck

    Definately get it replaced. If your out of your 30 day window, it will be a refurbished device. My Bold is refurbed and is better than the first 2 new Bolds I got.

    The pixel is black, always black and its high enough to always be in the white txt area while typing.

    It sucks my eyeball to it instantly lol.

    Sounds like it can be stuck then.. I actually had a dead one in the 1st BB I got.. took it into the store and got an instant replacement. It was new but if its outside the 30 day window that yea like stated above it is probably going to be a refurb...

    How do you tell if it's a dead pixel and not dust? I think I have a dead pixel but I'm not sure...it's a reallllllly small black dot that's definitely under the screen and of course it's right where most of the white background is when I type. It's driving me nuts! It's the only speck on my screen under a white background cause I'm super anal about dust. I've removed all the screen protectors so I know it's under the screen.
