Got a stuck pixel? "Clear the cache", says HTC

I bought the Nexus One from Google. It's a great Android phone, but I found that it had a stuck pixel, and the T-Mobile 3G connectivity issues that everyone experiences.

So I contacted HTC with the following message:

My Nexus One has a stuck pixel (blue), and I experience T-Mobile 3G connectivity problems in an area where T-Mobile lists full 3G signal.

I would like to have my N1 replaced. Can you please advise how the procedure would go, so that I minimize downtime without a phone?

Here's HTC's boilerplate reply, after about a week:

Hi, I'm Dakota, and I will be glad to assist you today Please follow these trouble-shooting steps to resolve the complications you have received on your HTC Nexus One. First clear the browsing history on your HTC Device. Open the Browser, tap menu, and tap Privacy settings. Choose to Clear Cache, Clear History, Clear all Cookie Data, and clear Saved Passwords. Then perform a Soft Reset on your Nexus by removing the battery, wait five seconds, and reinsert your battery. Test the concerns on your Nexus One.
