Defective iPhone?

So I got my new iPhone today but before it goes back to Rogers... is there some kind of screen dim functionality? I know the phone is on because it syncs with iTunes and tapping on the screen does something but the screen itself is black with very very faint gray outlines of icons (I think). Rebooting the phone didn't do anything.

Might sound stupid.

But did you check the display brightness in the settings icon?

Good Luck.

Sounds like your screen backlight might not be working.

To update: I tried rebooting, resetting, turning on and off (all while plugged in via usb cable). Charged overnight - same issue. Finally, I turned the phone off, let it charge for 2-3 hours and then the screen came on after I turned it back on. Haven't had a problem since.
