Hey guys,

I just got my 5 about 14 days ago exactly. I've already purchased AppleCare, and I'm going to the Apple Store on the 18th to get it replaced... but I'm just curious to know if anyone else is having this problem:

On my iPhone's screen, the Verizon logo at the top left, the bars behind it, the clock, the percentage on the battery, the battery icon, and my keyboard all leave a ghost on my screen. It may be 2-3 minutes at a time in order for it to happen. I just noticed it the other day when I was showing some vacation pictures off.

Any ideas of what could be the cause in order to prevent future problems?

Thanks guys

Alex.

It doesn't seem to be a big problem, but does seem to be a little problem out there.
I would return it and ask for another one if it annoys you that much.

Some call it Ghosting and others Screen Burn In, but one solution i saw was turn it off for a while turn it back on and if its still there return it.
In other forums (Everyone is a expert) some say its Software problem because of the new screen, they CANT get Ghosting/Burn In then others say that they can.
Im not a expert but if it persists and it annoys you can't hurt to take it back and see what they say. . . .

Thanks for the response! Yeah, it's doing it on everything now, I even changed my appointment to today, because it's bothering me that much! It's even doing it on the home screen icons Which makes me upset!

No worries tho, Apple shouldn't have a problem replacing it.

I'll keep you guys informed on what goes on!

Wish me luck!
