    no i don't think you want to try to swap the clickys. try putting a folded business card behind your battery.

    If you just got it, my advise is to contact Verizon and let them know. pick one to keep and one to send back.

    Tell them to get it together and send you another.

    If you mess around with it too much you may be sorry you did.

    Good luck

    The replacement phone I got is having that issue. I'm going to try the screw trick. The business card helps the click everywhere else on the phone except the lower right corner.
