    Hey guys,

    I've just purchased BlackBerry Classic today and so far I'm loving it but I hate the fact that I've noticed how the trackpad is slightly crooked to the left side. I know it's not a big deal but now that I've noticed it, I can't help it but to notice it everytime I look at my phone lol.

    My question is, does many of you guys have a similar issue because while I was browsing through the forum, I've came across a thread about this issue. I wonder if anybody have tried to exchange it to a straight trackpad or is all Claasics has a crooked trackpad?

    Thank you in advance!

    No crooked trackpad here. I'd suggest getting it exchanged if it's not too late.

    It's too bad it took so many, but the lesson here is: never settle for defective phone people! It's a hassle, but you've got to keep going back till you get a unit that's not defective. Good on you for not settling.

    It's not defective. Every single Classic has a crooked trackpad. It's stupid looking, but it works, and you won't find a straight one.

    And whoever says theirs is straight, I challenge them to post a picture.

    Mine is a bit crooked but doesn't bother me.... Would never consider exchanging it for that.... That's just me though....
    I just got this phone and the best word I can think of to describe it...... AWESOME!

    Some are much worse than others based upon the several I've had plus about the 10 or so other colleages have. Mine I would say is close as ive seen to being straight.

    Maybe they should just make it round so all of the cry-babies would just stop, lol. Oh, wait, then people will complain it looks like the iphone home button...

    no one is crying about it. but no one should be considering returning for this aesthetic defect either.

    it's indicative of a lot more behind the scenes that every single classic has a crooked trackpad. I don't mind it one bit, but it's kind of stupid.

    Yeah there is an old thread about this, mine looks ever so slightly crooked- verizon classic- but as many stated in the older thread it's somewhat of an illusion by the metal outline and light glare... and also we are in the same breath fairly sure it's "just barely" off to be annoying.

    Mine, I would say isn't crooked either and if it is, it's far less crooked than the other Classics I've owned/seen.

    It's almost impossible to tell from the angle at which your photo was taken and the glare. IMO it still looks crooked.

    Yep. Just like mine. I never even notice or think about it until I see threads like this.

    So you guys got me so paranoid, I analyzed my Classic with a precision light meter, and OH NOES! I found out that one key's backlighting put out 0.4 lumens of light, while 4 keys over, there's a key that put out 0.389 lumens of light! Can you believe it? I'm going to demand a refund from BlackBerry right now. More like HackBerry with these quality control issues!!
