My first 8800 squeeked on both sides when pressed. Was VERY annoying and gave the impression of a poorly made, cheap phone. I returned it for different reasons (poor keyboard), and the new 8800 I got in the mail is rock solid. No squeaks whatsoever. Seems construction quality varies greatly from unit to unit.

Mine is the exact same way - I'm not sure what is causing it and I don't see a way to tighten it.

Exchanged my 8800 for a new one yesterday for various software issues.The new one felt tight as can be all through yesterday and today!
However,tonight the SQUEAKS have begun! I'm really let down by the build quality of such a top shelf device.Shame on RIM for us to even have to make a thread about something like this!

You can't see it. I just shoved it in the top sides cut it and shoved the rest in with my fingernail.

Has anyone tried using Liquid Graphite instead of WD-40. I worry about using WD-40 as it might damage the plastic overtime. Just a thought.

Yesterday was day 30, so I exchanged my squeak toy. The new one was solid....yesterday. Today, squeaking by the USB port (which is where my 1st one started).

As of tonight my 8800 is in full blown Squeak mode.3 days old and it feels like it's a couple of years old already.
Also 2 cold resets today.I think my 8700 is coming out of retirement.

About the only thing I can add is my 8800 started squeaking about 3 days out too and does not seem to have gotten much worse. I put the shieldzone on mine and it looks so nice with it that I can't bear to bring this one back. I'm outside the 30 days anyhow.

My squeek hasn't gotten worse but the sides have loosened up more. On the USB port side, I can put my finger nail in between the silver plastic and body.

Maybe test units were built differently cause I can't imagine no one would have noticed this while testing.

Anyway, I'm outside of the 30 days now and with the 8300 around the corner, this squeeky 8800 will be on ebay soon.

I exchanged my 1st unit close to day 30 because it was squeaky and the sides felt "puffy". My second unit is much more solid (still squeaks a little) but my W key is not responsive enough so I have constant typos. And it likes to freeze during InfoSpace. I should have kept the 1st puffy one - everything else worked perfectly. meh I'll be calling Cingular to get another shipped out.
