    Hey guys, getting frustrated with my Bold. Is there anyway to make the trackpad and two buttons around it stop squeaking? Its extremly annoying and everytime I move my finger over the trackpad it makes a creak/ click sound.
    Its very agitating and I wanna figure out what I can do lol. Any ideas?

    I had the same squeaky trackpad, but after time it goes away. So just wear it in and itll be gone in a while

    Mine did that when it was brand new, just give it time to break in. It will go away.

    Ditto on the newness factor. And it does go away with time.

    You can gently try to move the plastic away from the trackpad using a finger nail where it is binding. Fixed mine instantly.

    the squeaks will go away after some time, its a common thing in BBs.

    Lol I was just worried that it would end up like my torch 9800 did. Where as the button cover piece slid off and took the trackpad with it. I think it'll be fine, I'm just a perfectionist lol. I always want it to be right . However I'm still keepin the phone and ill let it break in. Any ideas how long it takes to break in?

    the squeak can actually get worse over time as well at different points on the call-end panel as I'm noticing on mine.

    Mine too - the 'call' button seems to be getting worse and it's driving me up the wall...

    Well after creating this thread, I am happy to report that the squeaking has substantially subsided (finally). I hope Rim eventually ups there quality control because they could definitely prevent some situations like this lol
