    My phone started acting up yesterday. First it started with every once in a while I would touch my screen to click on a app and the notification bar would come down. Now to day it's every time I touch my screen. I've reboot, wiped everything, nandroid, reflashed different roms and still getting the same problem. If anyone has had this problem let me know before I chuck my phone against the wall. Thanks.

    The Hero comes with a one-year warranty, so if something is functionally wrong with it I'd RUU back to 1.5 or 2.1 then bring the phone back to the store for replacement under warranty.

    Well... I had a Samsung M520 slider for a year and a half, and one day the screen stopped working when I was in the middle of an important texting conversation with my girlfriend. I threw it against the wall, when I put it back together, it worked perfectly for another 3 months until I bought my Instinct(which went to shit after 2 months) and then I got my Hero.

    So anyways, what I'm trying to say is, Throw it against the wall, it can only help it.

    I would not count on the Hero's screen withstanding a wall throw.

    Now those old Nokia's, those things could take a beating. I remember seeing some that had been dropped off roofs, run over by trucks, still working. My uncle dropped his in a bear he was gutting (yes, IN a bear), and it still worked after drying out a bit. Even remember one that was mostly covered in tar from a roof, and it still worked fine.

    I agree with you on the screen. Can you believe i had no idea the screen was glass until yesterday? My buddy has an HD2 and he was talking about it.

    My friend told me something that i should've noticed and thought about before. All he said was "push in in the screen" and no "oil spill" effect, no dipping, no softness to the screen. I was like "well i'll be damned......... dude i got a glass screen!" Hah. That's sad to get that excited about something that small, no?

    Maybe you just didn't push it hard enough?

    Well I RUUed back to stock and went to the sprint store. The techs looked at it and they couldn't figure out what went wrong. So they just replaced it. Now time to reroot.

    Did you get a new one or a refurbished one, and were you within the first 30 days?

    My screen gets real wonky about every other day now. No mater where I touch, it registers at the notification bar. I either have to turn the screen off for about 5 minutes or reboot. It's very frustrating.
