    Slider issue here too... I just got my phone 2 weeks ago and the slider is getting so loose that both the top and bottom wiggle - with the top almost rattling when against my face during a call. I got it through a corporate account. I called the local Sprint store here in Chicago (LaSalle) and was told to come in and let a service tech look at it. But what exactly can he do about the issue except replace?

    Any ideas what I should expect when I go in there today - and what I should say? I knew about (and expected) some wiggle when the rails got used over time, but to have this much movement after only 2 weeks is driving me nuts.

    Any suggestions would he appreciated!

    There is a cool fix to this issue that i saw in a thread. Using some clear tap and placing it up under the slider creating more pressure. Have not tried this cuz my pre does not have the oreo issue but alot of people have been pleased with the results. If a customer came in my location with the oreo issue I would follow the instructions from that thread and the attatched youtube.com video to fix it. Not the right answer I know. It can be replaced as a know issue with the pre threw a service and repair location but no bet that your replacement will not have the issue.

    Hopefully Palm is looking into this issue and watching this forum and applying what we have learned to rebuilding there refurbs. I have herd from many who say there referb is better than original.

    If you click on that line in the known issues this is what message you get.

    Palm Pre Cracked LCD Screen - Follow LCD Warranty Policy




    If customer has a Palm Pre with the above issue:

    Instructional Note: How to Handle a Palm Pre Cracked LCD Screen

    Follow normal warranty procedures when dealing with customers with a Palm Pre cracked screen by determining if the issue is due to physical abuse.

    If physical customer abuse is obvious, then it should not be covered under normal warranty procedures.

    If you do not see physical damage or cannot determine any customer abuse, follow procedures for replacing a phone for the customer under warranty.

    Only send the customer to Asurion if you see obvious signs of abuse.


    .........So what there saying is, They know its a know issue but telling sprint tech's not to replace a phone with obvious physical damage due to customer abuse, under this know issue. When the phone gets back to palm and it has physical damage due to customer abuse the divise will be charged to the store who replaced it for the total retail price of the divice. This keeps sprint reps honest. Thats why they will not do it if you ran over it to crack it. Nobody wants to loose there job over trying to hook someone up who abused there phone. It is a know issue and when they crack that way they all look pretty much the same.

    No. its not that the issue has to be on the list. This is a list of known issues and some work arounds to help techs out with fixing the phone.

    If your phone is physically damaged, lost, stolen ect. you would need to go threw assurion and pay the deductable to get a new phone shipped to you.

    If its under warrenty and there is a defect from the manufacturer you will get it replaced for free.

    If you have ESRP and there is a defect from the manufacturer you will get it replaced for free even if its not under warrenty. ESRP covers any and all problems with your phone exept physical damage, lost or stolen

    We have seen a few different display screen anomalies on the Palm Pre LCD Display.

    Random and intermittent issues seen range from a dead pixel as well as an occasional white orb in the display.




    If customer has a Palm Pre with the above issue:

    Instructional Note: If dead pixels are witnessed complete the e-ticket and perform an exchange.

    This is good to know. Sounds like there is no reason for Sprint to refuse a replacement if you have been careful with the phone.

    so what i'm reading is that according to sprint, there is no type of cracked screen that is considered a "manufacturer defect" and warrants a free exchange, correct?

    Thats right. See id rather fix ur phone than replace it. and id rather replace it than send you to assurion. My indirect store gets payed more per phone by sprint to fix phones than to replace them. 1/3 less to do an advanced exchange.
    I only send people to assurion if i cant fix there phone and I know it will get me a full retail chargeback for being physically damaged.
    I have fixed peoples phones that were physically damaged and normally would have to go threw assurion. If i can fix it and save the customer from taking that rought then i will for two reason.
    1. I dont like to see people pay $100 for the replacement.
    2. I make my company more money by fixing there phone than refering them to assurion.

    I saw that fix too.. also one that has you applying thin layers of super-glue to part of one rail to build up the thickness. But on a phone that is only 2 weeks old, this shouldn't be the fix. Is it just my phone, or does everyone's have a ~2mm movement on the slider side to side along with movement on the top of the slider (not just the bottom)? hmmm...

    No. This cracking in the top left corner is a known issue and as long as thats the only physical damage on the phone they will replace it.

    See the palm pre is the only phone i have seen with a cracking screen thats a known issue. Any other time a tech sees a screen crack, its clear that it has been dropped.

    Not to be a smart buttox but its kinda common sence when i see a cracked pre, verses a cracked screen on a touch pro. Too bad not all techs you talk to will be informed about this issue. I suggest telling the tech to go on NASCSUPPORTTOOL.COM and look up that it is a know issue and you did not drop it.
    I actually got a email about it from my corp. field rep. I had not evern herd of it until i got that email. Know mine is doing it too.

    you can always bring up other known issues that warrent an exchange. IE pixels

    Working in a job similar to yours but for AT&T, I'd advise you to watch what you post online. The boatload of paperwork that you signed when you got your job almost certainly included a couple of NDA's, and some of the stuff you're posting (stuff about internal policy and what appear to be direct quotes from internal documents) almost certainly violates those NDA's.

    Just saying, this isn't really the best time to be taking chances with your job.

    I personally think that there all going to do it at some point. Some right out of the box. Others over time. All the replacement phones i have been getting back have been tighter. I am praying that palm starts putting some type of buffer in the rail when building then or refurbing them.

    all policies that have been posted go hand in hand with the service and repair/ total equipment protection agreements you signed when activating or upgrading.
    If physically damaged, lost or stolen.........Refer to assurion
    If otherwise defective, take to service and repair center. If you pay for the protection it will be fixed or replaced.
    If under warrenty.......Again, fixed or replaced.

    Exchange. If it's within 30 days of purchase the phone might be refurbished and resold, but the guy with the problem is going to get a replacement.
