    So I have had it for about 40 days and here';s what I noticed - every so often (I am on .75 btw), when switching from one app to the next, or switching screen, the entire screen becomes wildly pixelated - all different tiny colors - that's the best I can explain it...any ideas or similar insances? couldanything cause this?

    It definitely sounds defective. Since your are out of your 30 day return period, check with Blackberry. There has to be some sort of 1 year warranty or something. Personally, I'm on my second storm. It took my first one back to best buy after it started getting dust under the screen. Best of luck!

    It may be a 3rd party app - here's what I have installed:

    weatherbug
    ascendo data vault (for os 4.7)
    NYT mobile
    soft reset
    pinstack launcher

    Try either wiping your device or upgrading your OS, don't think it has anything to do with third party apps

    I know exactly what it is you're talking about... At the most random times but very far between - I see what you see. You aren't crazy my friend... It has been a while since I've seen one - and I honestly don't know what the cause of it is. I thought I was alone.. :-\

    I've had my Storm since the 22nd of this month, and have seen that screen maybe 2-4times... The visual description matches yours greatly. It covers the entire screen with hundreds of colored pixels in a random fashion..

    I too have experienced this. I to be honest am not really worried about it. I think its just another issue with the OS. Many things need to be fixed. Just add this to it.
    Don't stress too much. In time all these crazy frustrating wrinkles will be ironed out.

    I have had the same screen randomly and i have had my storm since release day. It kinda looks like white noise on the tv for like 5 seconds and then goes away. I think its jus tthe storm being laggy. Another thing you have until like january 15th with verizon to return the phone. they changed there policy for the holiday season that if you bought a phone between like nov.15th and december 25th you have up until january 15th to return the device.

    mine did that too like 2 or three times ... i thought it had to do with putting it in the holster and the magnetic field .. but it didn't bother me. it went away.

    If the NYT is FreeRange, that may be the prob. They've been hanging up backups...
