So i think i might be having to make that call to VZW to get a warranty Storm
the bottom right hand corner of my BB Storm is slowly going out i have to push harder and harder everyday to get it to work in that corner so not happy :-(
Is this a common problem?
I wouldn't say common, but it happens...
There are some storm owners that came up with some tricks to get a better clicking storm.
If you are having the problem but can get the warranty that is the way to go.

Yep..... they are all the same....... Thats why nobody complains about the 1000's of different issues on CB.

By the way, was playing with a friends (shes still on .75) but only has had it about a month. She knows nothing about crackberry or betas, and hers actually runs pretty well but she has no 3rd party apps either.
Yeah, probably why, my daughter just upgraded from 75, it was soooo slow before.

But i'm not complaining much, a little faster accelerometer and more app memoey is all i'm asking for.
Come on Verizon throw a brother a bone
My Storm on the outter edges is harder to press down to select letters or what have you. I have been weary of getting it replaced as I wouldn't know the condition of the whichever one I would receive as a refurb. I wish we would have the option of either a refurb or a new one-- providing we would pay a small fee for a new one. I can say that this time around I actually have the insurance as I didn't want to pay full price for a phone if it were lost or stolen and hence would not be covered by the warranty.
But you know what? The cell phone companies get you either way it goes so what can you do? lol.....
If you dont like the replacement you get just make them exchange it. I've heard of more than one person that has called not happy with their replacement, just keep bitchin and they give in.
I just wish at some point, they make a phone that can last as long as there contracts do. lol
The only phone i ever had that lasted more than 2 years was the original chocolate, had it 26 months not one problem, gave it my daughter, had it torn up in under 2 weeks (Shes 17)
Have you ever tried the screw fix? Worked very well for me

Thanks in advance,
My Storm's doing the same thing ...bottom right edge doesn't really even "click" anymore, still works fine, just no click to the screen when u press it. What's this screw fix u speak of? lol
2 screw in the back of the phone under the battery cover.

Some like it.
I havent tried it.

Be super careful with the stickers, they rip easily. using the point of a safety pin is helpful.
when turning the screws, it is turned counter-clockwise, and only a quarter turn.
put the cover back on and test it, especially around the corners. if it isn't enough, go another quarter turn counter...then test it again.
DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOU ARE HAVING A PROBLEM!!!
BlackberryOS.com, or any member of the staff are not responsible if you void your warranty from any damage (sticker or otherwise).
