    I got my Eris on Friday, and it has 4 pixels (2x2 square) that are significantly brighter than all of the others on the screen and they stand out like a sore thumb. This really bugs me and is distracting when that area of the screen is white or colored (doesn't show up when black).

    Has anyone else had this problem? Will Verizon exchange my phone for a new one? Seems like if I buy this phone and I'm stuck with it for two years, it should be flawless when I get it. Thanks.

    You might give it a try to get it replaced. Most manufacturers don't like to replace any screen unless it has more than 10 or so bad pixels. In my experience with LCD's as well, most "bad pixels" will correct themselves with time, which is most likely why they don't like to replace them. However, I've never seen this happen with a phone, so... I'd recommend going to the store and seeing what they can do.
