Default Storm screen dips in corner

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering if anybody elses storm dips in the corners? I use mine constantly, and have the hard keys to the right. Now I have notice that its not responding as well as it was. Where the enter key is at the bottom while txting, it dips lower than all the other corners. Is there a fix, or does it have to be taken in to be replaced?

you can feel the difference, plus if you put the phone eye level, you can see it.

After only a couple of days I'm noticing the bottom of the screen, in portrait, doesn't move as much and has less 'click' than the rest of the screen.
I'd sure like to see an exploded parts diagram of the screen assembly, I wonder if it's built like the 'optical' stabilization of the ccd on a digital camera.

I'm starting to wonder if I should hand this thing back to Verizon or get the 'replace it no matter what no questions asked' warranty.

I still have my Wizard and am forwarding the calls from Tmobile, but I really like the Storm and am keeping my fingers crossed for this 30 days.

yeah i have seen one storm like what you explain. i tried the card behind the battery and the torx6 wrench but nothing worked he had to exchange it there wasnt anything he could do.. but if this isnt normal however if it clicks good sometimes try to warm it up.. i have noticed in the last day or so if mine gets cold the screen sticks untill i warm up the phone then it works good again..

More observation based on an earlier post, looking at the screen on edge it appears to be flat to the phone casing, no corner dips.

I do note though, that the bottom, in portrait, of the screen, meaning the entire glass assembly, has about a quarter inch of 'dead' area, meaning the active display stops a quarter inch or so from the bottom. So, if I lock the phone, let it fade out and touch just that portion, it doesn't respond, but if I move to the line or above, the screen awakens and awakens when pressing the edge of any of the other three sides. And flipping it to landscape, the keyboard stops at that line.
