    STORM..flaw/quality? ut-oh

    Advertisement



    great! well i really love my storm first of all but i just noticed something that i'm very weary of.

    above the left convenience key I've noticed that it creaks/clicks in and the sound it makes is very audible and noticeable.

    i keep clicking it to figure out why it's doing it.. it also does the same noise and click sound on the right below the camera convenience key. i got the storm 2 weeks ago on december 3rd and would like to know if anyone else is having the same thing happen.

    so anyway... i'm really thinking that i will have to send this in and get a replacement and i really hope that it doesn't happen again. even though it's not a HUGE problem i still don't like it. you know what i mean...



    -------

    sorry but i posted this in verizon general. i meant to post it in the storm thread.

    I have been using the storm as well. I have not noticed this sound though I will play with mine and see if I have any similar issues

    hmmm... i don't know if i should get it replaced or not. i mean it seems like the side part might come loose at some point because i keep hearing the creaking/clicking sound but i don't see that it's loose or movable at all. i was contemplating on spraying some wd-40 in it, lol.

    i don't see the side moving at all or actually clicking in. UNLESS i remove the battery door, then i do see the side above the left convenience key go in slightly if i press on it and it makes the noise.

    i didnt take anything but my phone, because they dont have any in store right now... they sent me a replacement and told me to keep all the accessories that came with the replacement as well, only send back the device, but who knows what will happen, but either way, if they have one in store - they will only swap devices[if youre verizon that is]

    they use fedex 2 day shipping so you will MORE THAN LIKELY get it within two days, I ordered mine friday after work and got it monday.... they said i wouldnt until weds(because the order would go in then and it takes two business days to get to me tues, weds)
