    I have two.

    They're barely noticeable only when there is a black background on the screen and the bottom four buttons are lit- then light will shine through the dead pixels....but when the home buttons deactivate after 4 seconds, the shine through the dead pixels are gone.

    Sounds like dead or hell even missing pixels to me, since each pixel is its own light source, they only shine when the backlight is on for the bottom buttons. So either it was a manufacturing fault or you are playing rough with your phone. Either case call up Tmo and see if you can get an exchange.

    Yeah, missing pixels is more accurate.

    AMOLED doesn't require a backlight, each pixel generates it's own light. The fact that any backlighting shows through those two tiny pixels means they're missing.
    Good call.
