Anyone else notice this?
Also, the screen clarity looks less.
Wonder if in September T-Mobile had been shipping better pearls than in Nov.
What are you comparing this to? Is the store agreeing with you when they look at the phone.
My keys don't make a sound at all [I also have the keyboard sounds turned off].
As to the display, is yours on auto-dim? If your is a T-Mo phone, go to
and make sure <backlight brightness> is at 100%
and <automatic backlight> is set to "off"
press <escape> key to save your settings.
I have to assume that to do an exchange the carrier went over the above with you.
You might want to also take out the battery and see where the Pearl was made. There has been talk that those assembled in Mexico are not put together that well.
