    I just got my Droid on Sunday, I was messing around today and noticed a dead pixel in the display. It's only noticeable when it's a black screen, and it shows up as green. What say ye, time for an exchange already?

    My first droid had that too, in the lower right corner. I felt bad complaining until the Verizon guy said it would bug the hell out of him too. They exchanged mine with no problem at all. I'd do it sooner than later.

    I had 2 or 3 pixels out on my first droid. They exchanged it for a new one with no questions asked. Take it back.

    Sounds like I'll be exchanging it today. What do I have to do with the old phone before I bring it back? Do i give it a clean wipe, and how? Also I understand all the apps I got are easy to recover?
