Default Keyboard moving

Please Login to Remove!

I have noticed that my keyboard moves a bit (all together)...not to much but noticebly...has anyone else noticed something like that? maybe a result from the very tight pouch?....is there a way to fix it?

Mine does the same. I have never used the pouch (it sucks).
Think it is a normal behaviour.

The bbs that I have owned have all had a little play in the keyboard, it seems like it kinda 'floats' in place. Never seems to have been a problem.

this is normal on the 8900. I had one of the first us tmo units, and thought that it was defective, tmo sent me another one and it was the same...

This is normal for the curve series. Its a little more jiggly on the 8900 than it is on the 8320. I think its fun, I move it a little when I'm trying to think of the next word to type if I have a brain freeze.

LOL I do the same thing. Mine moves up and down a fair bit, but there isn't any play side to side.

Mine moves in all directions, get you mind out of the gutters I'm talking about the keyboard here.

would you think that the moving keyboard issue can be corrected or minimized if you tight the screws of the body?

Default Keyboard moving

Yes, if you tighten the screws the movement in the keyboard and for the battery cover goes away but... be very careful not to over-tighten (like I did) because the screw head will twist right off.
