Default Screen isue in Horizontal Mode - Only when BB Key is on right side

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

So far loving my storm. Was wondering if anyone else had this screen issue. The screen click great and works great everywhere. I am loving it. However, when I rotate to Horizontal (landscape) and the BB key is on the right the bottom left key (NUM) does not highlight. When I rotate such that the BB key is on the lest there is no issue. Is it possible that only this portion of the screen is dead or is this a calibration issue? I have a new sotrm coming but the current one I am using is all set-up and lightning fast after 5 days of use. Any feedback would be appreciated. I am debating holding onto this Storm w/ the issue and seeing if the OS release scheduled for December resolves the issues.

I think this is a problem with that specific phone. Test the new one and if it doesn't happen on that one, keep it and return the old one.

Thanks guys, Verizon told me this hsould be fixed via the OS updates. Regardless I'll test the new one coming Tommorow. The paper trick does not work. The screen click the button just does not highlight.
