Default Wobbly/Unresponsive Trackpad

Please Login to Remove!

My first post here on the forum, so I should say hello to everyone first

Anyone else have an unresponsive trackpad?
I went from the superb Bold 9000 to the 9700. First thing I noticed right out of the box was the unreponsive trackpad, even while going through the initial setup. Having not had a trackpad device before I convinced myself it was 'normal'

Over the last few days the wobble has been bugging me and it could take 7-8 thumb swipes to go side to side on a web page, even when not scrolling. Up and down however worked fine

As it was only 4 days old, I got it swapped for a new one easily and this one is sooooo much better No trackpad wobble, and very responsive in all directions. Even the top function keys have a nicer feel to them!

Default I have the same wobbly track pad problem....

I got mine the day they came out. I tried switching out twice but same issue. I decided to wait a few months and warranty exchange in hopes of getting a different build.

Just for the record, all three were Mexico builds.

Everything else about my 9700 is great.

Still nostalgic about my -

Default Bold 9700 problems

Although I do not have the 9700 I have read massive complaints about quality control. I'm wondering if it is better to get a rebuild than new. They are touted as great Blackberries. ATT has them for a penny.

Yeah, that's because all the hard workers moved to the US. Well, except for my friend Jesus, he moved back a couple years ago.
