    Is there a fix that I can do myself? I finally got a good keyboard and screen that I'm fine with and the slider mechanism is loose as a goose on it

    The slider wobbles left to right real bad and slides down lower than my other Pre Plus phones (you can feel the edge of the upper /screen portion at the bottom). If there's something I can do then I'll try it but I'm tired of swapping phones hoping to get a good one

    Get the Sprint or Verizon hard case which will reinforce your slides. I like the Verizon version cuz it has a cut out in the back for the Touchstone.

    I didn't really want to spend money on more accessories

    the case is awesome, adds bulk to the phone but makes it sturdy as a tank

    That sucks. I wouldn't want to buy accessories to make my phone functional either. It is a shame that you can't have a device just work the way it is supposed to. Now they want you to spend more money to fix a manufacturer's defect? That's insane.

    instead of going to the store,call palm and tell them your slider wobbles really bad,and you would love to have them fix or replace it... That's why I did,got a refurbished one that as been tested,and now mine is as rock solid. Good luck.

    I recall seeing a few threads on fixing the slider yourself. If you do a thread search, I'm sure you can find them.

    I found a fix posted here late last night...sorry anything that involves me taking a hot glue gun to my phone is out the question lol.

    So VZW is willing to replace it...but it still works. They will send another refurb and there's no guarantee that I won't get something similar. I may as well wait for this one to break I guess...

    Quit playing with it to see how much it has an Oreo effect. I have a slight one that has never gotten worse.

    All the people I know who have some form of sliding phone have a slight oreo effect.

    Oreo effect?

    Oreo effect is the play the top of the phone has from the bottom of the phone. Kinda like the slider is loose

    I think this link still works (I'm at work and can't double check)
