    Hows it goin fellas...
    I have this little problem with my bbp. I dropped it in the woods last night and couldnt find it for literally 2 minutes and this is where i believe the problem started. OK so i look at my screen and in the middle it looks like when you put a magnet up to a tv, distorted and discolored. Does anyone know what i should do? Thanks...

    A few questions first,

    Have you tried the cold reboot? Is it still there? Did it land face down, on the screen?

    sounds like the screen is damaged....You should call your service provider or take it in to the nearest store if you have insurance

    Ouch 5ive. Yea if the reboot doesnt work for you it may have infact gotten its screen damaged. I'd take it back to where you bought it.

    Cold Reboot (Battery Out, wait 15-30 sec, Battery Back in). Basically, it frees up all the garbage memory that Java might have left behind and reloads portions of the OS and Apps from the Flash Memory to RAM.


    Hope this helps.

    If you have insurance, I would. You might try anyway, especially if it's really distrubing when viewing. But be warned they might say it's your fault for dropping it and refuse to do a warranty replacement.

    i dont get it, i dropped it and found it in literally 2 minutes while it was in a case too. Maybe its the case that did it, like i said it looks like a magnet distorted it and i have the TMobile case with the magnetic clip, any ideas? Ill post pics of the damage if youd like

    Yea, maybe you might not want to mention that you dropped it.... Hey didn't someone else post a while back they got that distortion in their screen and thought it was from the magnet in the cover??? Seriously I remember a post about it....

    that is what i really think it is from, im going to tell that to my dealer too. i think it is highly unlikely for such damage to be caused by what happened. First of all, i dropped it in leaves so there was hardly impact. Second it was in the case and third it was lying there for less than 3 minutes. Come on is the pearl really THAT fragile?
