Default I press my trackball and it's like I press on the screen!

Please Login to Remove!

So who feels like if they don't press on the bottom of the track ball, it looks like your pressing on the screen. I mean that when I press anywhere except the bottom i see my screen react as if i'm pressing on it (Kinda a little circle picture distortion. I don't really know how else to explain it. But as long as I try to only press near the bottom of the track ball it doesn't happen... Anyone else?

This is normal. My 8800 did it too.

I noticed it the first day I started using it. But kind of ignore it now. It is very minimal and barely noticeable.

I was going to post about this too and I was even thinking about walking into a Cingular store and trying it out a Curve there. Mine does it also, it's a little annoying especially when looking at images. It's the same effect you get when you poke at your LCD monitor, kinda like liquid. I have to admit, the Curve feels a bit spongy compared to my 8700c. If you press the back of the Curve with one finger it will also do this to the screen.

My first unit did this among other things, but my replacement doesn't.

I'm not 100% sure it's normal, but it isn't occuring on EVERY device.
