    Be careful and check the date in the battery cavity to make sure you got the right phone.
    What a hassle
    You gotta love Verizon
    BBleaks just tweeted the following :"Update: spoke with cool vzw tech guy...it is a green dot AND/OR the date...so date could be wrong but green dot means its good & vice versa"

    go figure...I got green dot...so I guess I'll try it and assume it's the "updated" version.

    "Yes, we actually just got a technical notice last week regarding some updates that RIM has done with the Storm II screen. All new devices & certified replacements have been updated with the enhanced screen. "

    What exactly is this recall fixing? I haven't had much of a problem with the screen aside from the screen being difficult to press during a call. can anyone elaborate? I just wanna see if its with the trouble of getting a new s2 and getting all new licenses for my apps

    Got mine...switched everything (almost ) over, and the screen fells "firmer"...gotta press just a liitle bit harder.

    I had the "dot"...not the date.

    My VZW rep went over and above....called some "big-wig" to confirm that the Green Dot is the indicator....and if the date is after 2/25/2010 the fix is built in and no Green Dot....of course take that for what it's worth...but she sounded convincing..hone:

    Mark,
    This is too funny. I think I would personally feel better if the date was right, not that I don't have confidence in the green dot.

    I called yesterday and said my bottom buttons we hard to press and it was hard to answer a phone call (true). I asked about a known issue with the S2 and the rep said no,"I don't know of anything about that" but immediately and without and trouble shooting or questions ordered me a replacement. Kind of odd considering the hoops I've had to jump through getting my 4 S1's replaced. But anyway a new one is on the way.

    Well I got mine today and yes it had the green dot and 01142010 date, and IT WAS STRAIGHT GARBAGE. The screen was clicking like it was on steroids, and yes I caught FedEx and dumped off on them to return that mess. The tech said keep sending them back until I get the right one, whatever dude

    I think I'll wait a couple more weeks to a month before I get my replacement.

    Ii just got mine. It has the green dot. I'm not sure where to look for the date, but compared to my old S2, It's a world of difference. It seems to be a little stiffer but not bad enough to return.

    Ditto that--sounds like there's some pre-screen fix S2s still in the replacement stream? Mine's off-and-on stiff in lower left screen, particularly in landscape mode, but not annoying enough to not wait a bit.

    I just received my second new 9550. There clearly is a bright shiny green dot on the box, but the date code is wrong.
    I did also confirm that it is green dot and/or the date code, so I'm going to do what Mark said and "trust the green dot"

    Hey Orio,

    Has the screen loosened up a little for you? I could barely get through an email yesterday w/o thumb cramps. Maybe the silocon they added does firm the screen?
