just got my iPhone a few days ago and I'm generally very pleased.

Last night I noticed that there are 4 pin-sized holes on the screen cover, not the actual LCD, one towards each corner of the phone and the screen backlight is visible through them.

I wouldn't really mind as it seems they are there for a purpose, but the top right one is really visible at night, especially with the brightness turned up and I find it annoying.

Has anyone noticed the same thing? I'm actually thinking of taking the phone back to the Apple Store and change it.

QUOTE Thanks

Same here, if it is bothersome I would take it to the apple store and have them look at it.

I think that you are supposed to be able to see some light around the edges of the screen, going by what I've read elsewhere, but personally I can't see it looking at it right now and while my brightness settings are quite high, I certainly don't have the problem you're describing. I'd ask for an exchange, to be on the safe side, since you've only had it for a few days.
