So I've had my iPhone three months now, and there are easily 200-300 stuck pixels along the left side of the screen. It wasn't that way when I got it, and I've never dropped the unit.

I'm going to take it in to exchange for a new unit, but I'm wondering if it's worth waiting until the 3G units come out. So I guess my real question is two-fold: Is there a downside to waiting (expired warranty?), and what are the chances I get an upgraded unit if I take it in in July?
QUOTE Thanks

No, it won't. Your unit will be replaced with the exact same model you purchased. You don't get a new model just because a new model was released since you bought the one you have.

DB is right on: Apple even now still replaces iPod minis with refurbs when you send it in for a battery exchange, so you'll definitely get the current gen iPhone back.

They appear to have enough refurbs that you likely won't get a newer model. I just took my 4GB iPhone in because it wasn't loud enough... and got a 4GB iPhone to replace it.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I don't want to have to walk over there to do it."
