Default This curve is going back!

Got my Curve today from ATT Premier. Not happy. The side button for the camera is so weak that i have to use my fingernail to push it in far enough to activate it. The volume keys are only slightly better. I can't believe RIM would put out a product like this. I may stay with the 8800, which is built like a rock (even if it squeaks). What should I do?

Exchange it for a new curve, if you think yours has issues.

I have zero issues with the buttons or anything else for that matter

Take the Curve back to AT&T and have the device replaced.
What you're describing about the buttons is not typical. Sounds like you've just got a bad unit. Unlucky, but it happens.
AT&T will rectify the issue for you.

OK. So I just called ATT and they are gonna swap it out. I hope the next one is better! I'm still shocked I needed to use my fingernail to get the camera button in.

That button does sit a little further down than the rest of them.

Listen! As several memebrs of this forum have stated, this is NOT typical of a RIM product. Check around here and you will find few product defects. If you try hard enough and look closely you will find a squeek here and there but yours is NOT typical.

If your replacement is the same, someone hates you for sure!

Sorry you have to strain your finger so much on a button to make the camera work. Pushing a button is so hard. Send it back.
