sad that it is for "like new" aka refurbs. but if it works better and i keep my current warranty I am down.
How about you guys?
RIM acknowleding a defect in the 9550 screen? Could a recall be in the near future?
I first heard about this a few days ago when BerryScoop dropped the news. Now BBleaks seems to be getting some reports as well. The report is that RIM has officially acknowledged that there is a defect in the 9550. The defect can cause the touchscreen to become unresponsive and unclickable. Reports are coming in that there is a new hardware revision on new 9550s and "Certified Like-New " replacements. Also, it's said that VZW will be replacing units that have the defective screen. I can, however, confirm that this has not yet gone into effect. I just got off the phone with a Verizon tech agent and he was not able to send me a replacement unless I could reproduce the issue in a VZW store. Problem is, it's random and not reproducible. So as of right now this is not in effect yet. I hope they do it soon because my unresponsive left corner is driving me nuts. We will keep you guys updated on this as more news unfolds.
