Guys, if you read any of my other posts, I had my first 8900 that ... BlackBerry Curve forum
2nd Defective 8900...
Guys, if you read any of my other posts, I had my first 8900 that I got on the 11th which had a camera defect (pixels, etc.), got another one today via retail store exchange... and everything is flawless, no memory leak on default OS, etc. etc...
Except.... I just noticed that when I press the end key (it does it very slightly as well when I press the escape and send keys as well), the screen does the wavey thing that all LCD's do when you press on them. However, I am not pressing on the LCD screen at all, I am merely pressing the button with average power (not excessive). Sigh... I guess this one the LCD placement is off and thus I am hitting it when I press the end/esc/send key... Goodness... I will be going back and getting my 3rd 8900 in less than a week...
Has anyone else had this problem? Is it just a simple manufacturing defect?
Needless to say, I am bummed...
EDIT: Actually I dont need to even press the key hard enough to make it click, just tapping it (the keys have some wiggle room, esp the send/end row) makes it do it. It is also very obvious and not subtle.

Never read anyone else having that screen issue. Def sounds defective.
Wow, you've had awful luck. I'm thinking that this is just an isolated case. Maybe the third time will be the charm.
Several ppl on the crackberry forums have had it as well. I had to switch out my 8320 3 times as well before I found a good one a year ago as well. Hopefully, this will be the same case this time.
Sorry to hear about the problems you've been having. Best of luck with number three
I got the first 8900 out of a retail store in OH. It has a red pixel right in the middle of the camera screen. I am going to exchange it in a couple days and hope for the best?

Yeah return it. My first one had a similar issue. It had 2 pixels stuck only on the camera viewer. It would also show up on my pictures but with less intensity. Talk about annoying...

Yep used to happen on the first prod Bolds when they came out in August 08.
As blackninja said, keep exchanging until you get a perfect one.
