Help? Squeaky Torch

Hey! I have a Torch (LOVE IT!), but there is one problem.  The frame right behind the mute button on the top creeks when there is pressure.  When the screen is slid out, it doesn't make a sound, but when the screen is down, it makes creeks when pressure is put on the front or back of the phone in that corner.


It's only a minor annoyance, but I want to see if I can do away with the problem without having to get a new Torch.  If anyone has any suggestions to solve this, please say them!  I love my Torch and want to keep the one I have. Please help! Don't be afraid of giving new ideas!

Re: Help? Squeaky Torch

try ear plugs or turn up the stereo louder ( at least it workes in my truck for all the squeaks)


Mine does not squeek when opened or close, but it did a lil when it was new. I have now broken it in very well.


I cant promise the squeek will be gone, but with any that has moving parts squeeks can happen.


if it is really bad, then mayby a warranty claim is needed. Does it really hinder the device from working?
