Default Loose Keypad

Please Login to Remove!

Just got my 8900 today.
Noticed that when I touch the keypads, it's a bit loose. Seems the keypad doesn't fit snuggly that I can slightly move it up and down.

Is this normal? Or should the keypads be tight?

A small amount of play in the keypad shoudn't be an issue-if it is enough to effect your abilty to navigate or type from the keypad, returning it is an option.

not the battery door. it's the keypad itself that moves up and down. i wish it was a snug fit. might return it today.

navigating and typing is ok. the "movement" does bother me.

Mine has the same play, too. Noticed it right after I got it but it doesn't bother me and has not been any kind of issue.
