    My Storm2 Just crapped out. I upgraded from the Storm 1 on Release Day. It's been working awesome. Over the past couple days I started noticing some wierdness in the touch screen, mostly near the new softkeys. They would be very firm. Tonight, I was cranking away on it and all of a sudden, the screen just started going nuts. it's started making phone calls and no matter where i pressed on the screen, other areas light up or a touch makes a "stutter" of clicks.

    I've pulled the battery a half dozen times and no change. Even left it out for an hour. Anyone else experience this? I am going to the store in the AM to exchange, but if I hear more reports, I am going to return it and re-activate my Storm 1.

    Thanks, was a bit worried because I haven't dropped it and I was sitting at a table and just got done showing someone the difference in feel compared to their storm 1. It just started responding strangely so I did a battery pull. One thing I did notice was that during boot, if I pressed the black area above the screen where speaker is, it was generating screen click sounds.

    Lol...sounds like someone dropped it. I'm not saying you did, but you shouldnt be getting any clicking up there lol. Just return it. If it is just a hardware defect, then that happens. I mean, there are always hardware defects int he manufacturing process. Some people are just unlucky and get the lame duck devices. It happens in every industry. Don't give up on the S2 yet. It's an amazing device.

    What you are describing could be the result of water damage too.
