Anyone's Touch Pro have lots of "Wiggle" in the closed position?

I hope I describe this correctly. WHen the phone is in the closed position, my screen (the top part of the phone" can move a few degrees back and forth. It didnt do this at the begginging. I know there are a few discussions about build date and the "newer" phones being more sturdy, so im curious if others are having the same problem with their phone.

Thanks!

Yes, mine is. It wiggles a little bit up and down, and the bottom right side wiggles to the left -- of course it also "wiggles" to the right, since that's the way the slider opens! It's not too bad, but I'd love for it to be tighter.

My first TP (10/19 build date) was quite "wiggly" and made a considerable amount of noise when doing so. I just swapped it out yesterday for a newer unit (11/5 build date) and there is considerably less movement and virtually no creaking.

my pro wiggles in the same ways that have been described here and it didnt do that when i first got it, i was actually just about to ask if anyone else knew of a way that you could possibly tighten it slightly?

My TP wiggles as well. There is also some spacing between the screen and keyboard in the upper left-hand corner that gets pushed down whenever I use the left-hand corner of the screen. It seems like too much play to be normal? Anyoen else have this as well?

Thanks,

Re: Anyone's Touch Pro have lots of "Wiggle" in the closed position?

wiggle it....just a lil bit....wiggle it.....la la la la, sing along!!!! Ok people come on now. Yeah, there is going to be play in it a little. My sanyo 8400scp's (flip phone) top portion wiggles a little. I know you guys want reaasurance that it's normal and everythings ok with the TP. But use some common sence. I'm not trying to be harsh, or bashing anyone, nor am I calling anyone stupid. But common sence tells ya that it's a moving part so it will always move (wiggle) a little. Dad? DAAAAAAD? yes son? I got some dirt on my silver backing on my TP. Should I lick it with my tongue like spot does to his bunghole to clean it, or should I ...er....son, I'll take care of it. Go get the sandblaster and spray paint ready and I'll get the intructions on how to use the green mushy thing! Quick son! Before it sets in!!

Re: Anyone's Touch Pro have lots of "Wiggle" in the closed position?

It is a part that moves, and has no latch, so it is normal to have play. Think of a door on a hinge with no knob. It just swings on it's hinges, and the amount of play in the door depends on how tight the hinges are. Hinges will wear with age so all phones will have play at some point.

Again, the TP has no catch or latch for the KB, so play is normal.

The wiggle on my unit seems to have increased after the first week or two. Before that it was imperceptible. Maybe a tight case will help hold the two parts closer together?
