    Is anyone having problems with your screen turning into what looks like a slot machine? My phone first started doing this to me when I would text with the keyboard. Then I started using the on screen key board...now I cant even unlock my phone cause the screen seems to be ...slipping I guess.. Currently using my G1..calling T mobile in the morning...... Any suggestions?

    Does anyone know if there is a way to speed up the Mytouch Slide touchpad? It seems like it takes a lot of effort to navigate around a message I'm typing via touchpad.

    Wow, my first one worked just fine. Sure, it had the wobbles, but all of them did. Then it started to not let me make outgoing calls, but rooting fixed that problem. I was getting to no signal bulls**t too, but again, rooting fixed it. I wouldn't count on that fix ing all your problems, though.
    Hey, is anyone's battery door really squeeky? Mine is really irritating right behind all my Home, Menu, and Back buttons, and I can't take it back now. :( anyone know where I can find a replacement door?

    Mine doesn't. My wife and I are still on our original Slides that we bought in June. The closest thing to a problem we've had with either one is that the protective film we applied (Skinomi TechSkin) started to collect dust and peel up at the corners.

    Jeez your lucky. Mine wobbles really bad, even though it doesn't bug me too much. So seriously, am I the ONLY one with a squeaky battery door? I'm gonna need to buy a new one... :(

    I will tell you this.

    Electrical tape works wonders.

    One strip on the bottom below the battery (be sure to cut a place for the mic) and one strip down the left side starting from the top of the battery all the way to the camera button. No more squeaking battery cover.

    I read all the posts and wow it sucks that many of you have experienced problems. I've only experienced out of order text msgs and that's it, and I'm on my first phone. Handcent fixed the order. I was thinking about exchanging it since two letters keyboard buttons are not consistently lit up with the rest of the keyboard buttons, but I'd much rather have inconsistent lit up keyboard buttons rather than dropped calls, frozen screen, or random shutdowns that I might get from exchanging for a refurbished (2nd hand, 3rd hand, 4th hand?) phone. I don't wanna get a fixed now because what if they freakin' exchange my phone on purpose. No thanks!

    my phone has minor issues that I realize now after reading some of the replies thinking "hey, me too"...

    nothing TOO bad, however..

    I'm on my first, which was an original June release, and it's been good to me..

    my only question is since I didn't get insurance on it, am I screwed if anything major happens like some of you guys?

    On the outside of the battery cover or along the inside? I wanna try it...

    Well I spoke too soon, I'm starting to have the random loss of signal, and the phone won't dial out. I noticed I don't get EDGE, Its either 3G (which is running incredibly fast right now), or no signal at all ("x" next to the signal bars), and it'll switch back and forth between 3G and no signal once a minute, it seems...



    still wondering about this question, and do I need to have insurance to get a replacement?

    No if its a mechanical defect they will exchange it under warranty.

    Thanks!


    But it seems I spoke too soon AGAIN.!!:eek:

    Once I deleted a few texts, BAM, EDGE popped right up, 3G is fine and everything's peachy..

    I noticed it was an MMS that failed to download, once I deleted it, everything's fine again..

    Weird, but my phone's fine........for now.:confused:

    well I just read everyone's issues on the Mytouch 3G... you are definitively not alone... I searched the web today for the same reasons....

    I am on my 5TH Mytouch about to call TMobile for another one. it is crazy to read that some of you are on your 7th phone...I have had my phone since it came out in June 2010 and it seems that it is every month or so that this stupid phone starts to act up by doing the following...


    • dropped calls (anytime, anywhere)
    • mixed up text message threads
    • goes from service to no service, airplane mode or sometimes it just restarts by itself.
    • it also copied my contacts five times each, now I have 5x the same person.
    This phone is an awesome phone (for the first 30 days or so) then it craps... Why? I honestly don't know what to do, TMobile keeps sending me a new phone each time, and it really sucks to reload and reinstall all of my info every time this happens.

    Anyone got anything on this issue?

    HAS ANYONE BEEN OFFERED A REAL SOLUTION TO THIS??? (besides getting a new phone)

    I would like to hear from you.

    Root..

    Seriously, after running cyanogen 6.1, I have not had any other problems, even the ones I used to have...

    It has to be a software issue..

    I completly agree with RazoE.
    I used to have all sorts of problems with calls, signal, etc. and rooting fixed EVERY single problem I had.

    I guess we are just lucky... No problems with mine either, except for waiting for that update, which may or may not be fantasy.

    I had rooted mine and went back to 2.1update1 and I must admit my signal was MUCH stronger.
