iMatt.co.tv Level 1 Level 1
Ok I just got my iPhone 4 (16GB locked to at&t), i just cant believe how slick and perfectly designed this thin little device is, and the quality of the screen is as they say it, it smokes my 3GS out of the water!

So after I activated it and shut it off and on the screen now looks like rainbow colors..

It has mostly red and green and blue all over it.. But it worked perfectly fine before when I activated it..

I took a screenshot to see if you could see it but it just looks normal when you see it on your computer.. Whats wrong with it?

I live like 2 hourd away from the nearest apple store, what the **** do I do???

BTW: If you have ever taken a HUGE magnet and placed it on or beside a tv for a while, thats what it looks like. The colors on the screen are all messed up and deformed or something.

G5, Mac OS X (10.6.4), NONE . lol :P

    Leave it to Apple to release a phone FILLED with mistakes..

    How could they NOT see this?

    Is anyone else having the issue I am having?

    Everything else works perfectly fine, but the screen is messed..

    The colors are different now, I think they got darker and now I see a vibrant yellow color (its like really yellow, but theres a tiny bit and its mixed with green thats beside it)

    It sounds like you have a defective unit. It happens. Have Apple replace it.

    If the drive is too long, call tech support and they will do it quickly by shipping you a new phone in a package which you can use to return the one you have (at least they did that with one laptop I had).

    i do not own an iphone 4 BUT what i have read on a simliar issues like yours it's possible that after a few days of usage the screen distortion/discolouration might clear up, due to a bonding agent being used that needs to cure (dry/evaporate)
    i'd give it another day or so and if it does not clear way, return your phone

    hopefully your phone is ok as far as the proximity sensor and reception issues are concerned!

    good luck- francois
