Blackberry Storm Screen Issues
I have noticed that the lower right/left corners of my screen are often "sticky" and when I click on them they seem slightly unresponsive unless i push down and then i hear a "click". I also notice that my screen moves quite a bit up/down & left/right.
Other forums have mentioned that these issues can be fixed with a "piece of paper/business card" but i don't feel that i should have to correct it in this manner.
Further forums seem to indicate that it may be a hardware defect related to the model 19502 and that a new model 21009 has this corrected.
I purchased my storm on December 10 (telus) so it is still within the 30 days. Any advice as to whether I should ask for a new one?
Oh i should add that other than this (slight but possibly big issue as time goes on) i freakin' love this device!
Mine did the same thing. I called Verizon and after 5 minutes of software "adjustments" the determined that the screen was defective. I got a new one overnight with a return box for the old one. The new one is near flawless. So, call your crier.
The paper trick works, but I agree you shouldn't have to do such a thing. I would get a replacement from Verizon. Also, there has been no new hardware version. Nothing has changed. Some are simply made better than others. But definitely no new hardware.

I agree. I don't agree with putting foreign objects into a brand new device I just paid hundreds of dollars for to get it to work. It may take a bit to get the replacement in but at least it will be right.

questions about the screen.
heres my question
I mean when i shake my phone the screen doesnt move at all, but is it supposed to move around up/down/left/right when you slide it hard enough?
Also, are all the press points of your screen feel the same? My bottom one around the space bar on sure type it seems light and not too deep when pressing.

Yes, the screen is going to move around slightly. As for the different press points on the screen, my screen responds the same whether it's the corner or center of screen.

Otherwise all parts of my screen feel the same when I click it.
Okay im on my 8th day with this phone so im returninig it for a new one.
Yes it is supposed to move but as catstide said, SLIGHTLY.
My first storm had screen problems and would move A LOT. The second one which was flawless, the screen barely moved.
OK my second one is better when it comes to screen movement and screen click. It all feels the same on every part of the screen,
