Today I had a great laugh...

for the past few months my screen has been hard to push in on the bottom corners, etc.

Knowing that my boss disabled international use and long distance on my service, i took out the sim card and didn't have any place to put it. so i just stuck it in the battery part underneath the battery. it wasn't to hard to get the door back on...

i noticed my screen is now easily clickable from every angle and types 100 times better.

Sure when i first got it, i put a business card in like everyone else, but it didn't do anything.

using the actual sim card though, has made a huge difference.

try it out.

wow! Superb! I just tried it with an old AT&T sim card I carry in my wallet (sadly, I carry a Verizon, ATT, and T-Mobile sim cards in my wallet) and it is clicking perfectly!

Thanks for the quick fix!

@dietcoke, several of the Storm threads have suggested placing a business card or a folded card under the battery as a solution to screen clicking issues... that is well know.

But having it as an alternative storage for a SIM card is pretty nifty, lol.

Just put it right in the center. Then the battery back on and your good to go.
