How much play is too much in the slider mechanism?

I'm sure it's just being finicky of me but I've never owned a slider phone before and I have heard differing opinions about feeling play in the slider mechanism in my case when the phone is closed I can feel some left/right wiggle. Any input? Thanks

i have zero left/right wiggle. 

 

top/bottom wiggle has been there since day one.  it's very miniscule though.

Re: How much play is too much in the slider mechanism?

I have play in my slider too, very minor but it's there, I kind of figured that would happen eventually, so wasn't surprised, it's just the phone breaking in, as the first time I used it, it was a little tough to slide, now it's much easier!

Re: How much play is too much in the slider mechanism?

Glad to know there's somebody else facing the same problem as me. I'm from Malaysia by the way, big shoutout to all the BlackBerry user worldwide.
My Torch is about half a month old & the slider already wiggling left & right, is it normal? Can the warranty cover the fix? I'm quiet annoyed with it to tell you the truth, cause when I purchase this phone they told me this is the top of the marque BB. But with this quality, I'm sorry I don't think so.

Really? So I shouldn't be worried about it either? Will it be worst in the future?

Re: How much play is too much in the slider mechanism?

Mine is only about a week old but has almost no play at all.  May want to get that looked at and get some documentation started on the issue in case it isnt resolved and gets worse.

Re: How much play is too much in the slider mechanism?

Any slider type phone will have some wiggle or looseness over time, how much is too much can not be measured. Go look at a display unit in a store if possible, to see how it is holding up.
