    Question White static

    Anyone else ever get screen degradation in the form of white pixels that update very slowly on screen changes. Almost like snow or tv static. Mostly seen after extensive use. Almost always goes away on reboot. Not really sure how else to describe it, but you'll know what I mean if you see it. Both my friend and I have seen it on both of our flips.

    Just contacted Amazon about it last night. Also my charger stopped working unless I hold it a weird angle. Can't believe that happened because I always place it on a flat surface while charging. I don't even use it while it charges. So, its not like I bent it or anything. So I definitely need a new phone.

    Got an email from Amazon this morning, they are sending the new phone today, should be here by tomorrow since they always come out of Kentucky.

    THIS is why I ALWAYS shop with Amazon!!

    Used to have this problem on my old backflip that was running on the old motoblur update. Exchanged it because of some defects and got a new backflip with the newest update. Have yet to see the problem occur on my new phone

    Yeah, I have been trying to do manual updates to see if that solves the problem. Apparently I didn't make the cut for the update a few weeks ago. So, lets see what I get from amazon. I just love the fact that setting up the new phone will take next to nothing.:blur:

    You have to decide if you want to wait and try the update when it is released or exchange the phone.

    guess i'll wait n try the update. if nothing works then i'll just go back 2 my old phone. thx a bunch.

    Amazon came through for me. Posting from backflip #2. Tried my best to get the static to appear on this one and happy to say I couldn't. As far as the update that has been mentioned, both of the phones I have are identicle in hardware and software versions for everything I could see. Honestly, if you are within the first month I would definitely encourage you to return the device. Also, the number of returns speaks much louder to the manufacturer than waiting for a "maybe" update.

    As an added bonus, the physical keyboard on the new phone seems to click better than the other, making typing much easier.
