Hey everyone, my name is Kim and I'm new here. I have owned iPhones since they came out and just recently upgraded to the iPhone 4. So far, I love my iPhone, minus the ugly yellow spots that the screen has on the bottom. I love Apple and have a pretty unhealthy obsession with their products. ;) I live in Bakersfield, CA.

I bought it a month ago and when I called Apple they said I could bring it in, but they've seen this issue before and it had something to do with them shipping the phones out so quickly that the glue (or whatever he said) wasn't drying all the way, causing the yellow marks.

That probably didn't make much sense because he told me all of this a month ago, LOL. The yellow spot has gotten a lot less visible for sure. Maybe I'll take it to AT&T sometime this week, we have no Apple Store here. :(

Welcome Kim!

I read somewhere back when the 4s came out, that lots of people were complaining of this issue. They said it was the glue that is used to bond the layers of the touchscreen together. Apparently, the glue hasn't cured/dried enough before they shipped them. Eventually it will dry and the spots will go away. But if they'll get you a new, go for it.

I heard about this too. It happened when the 4's first came out because apple was in such a rush to get them out. I'm surprised its still going on now. It should only take a couple of days for it to set but as you've had yours for over a month I would be asking for a replacement...
