For awhile I have thought that my touch has been unresponsive from when I first got it, you have to press quite a bit to get it to recognise your actually poking it, and every time I do press the screen, the LCD "Wavers" like on a laptop screen when you press it. Now I DEFINATLEY know its unresponsive, as one of my friends just recived one, And I onlly need to use feather like touches to make it do anything, should I ask t-mobile for a replacement? Seeing as my device IS preforming at a "sub-standard" level.
Anyone else had this problem?

Odd, I have a MDA Touch, and it is a nightmare too, you really have to press it hard!

Yea its strange, my mate got his origional touch stolen, than t-moblile sent him an UNBRANDED replacement (lucky....) And his works like a dream. I recon I should march into a t-mobile store demanding a replacement.

Same here, MDA Touch, it's surprising how hard you need to press sometimes.

Is your friend's one a T-Mo one too, or a different carrier? (thinking ROMs here ;) )

Naw, he got an unbranded HTC, would it have something to do with the roms then?

I've got a T-Mobile MDA Touch and I'm having a similar problem as well... Every so often it slows down and causes programs to crash even though I install them to my memory card instead of the internal memory [except for some programs like PocketPlus].

No offence, but what has that got to do with the screen?

On another note, im going to take back to the shop, a small area of my screen hardly responds (the quicklaunch on the home screen) so I think its definatley faulty.

It has everything to do with the screen as everytime I press the screen every few minutes, it freezes up and I can't move the cursor at all! ;)

My HTC-branded Touch is quite easy, don't have to press hard

I thought I saw something in the regitry that look like a sensitivity setting
HKLM/Software/OEM/TFLOsettings (or something like that)

I got mine exchanged, although I have a business account so that might make a difference. After three devices with the same issue, I got the MDA Touch 256Mb.

I'd be very surprised, it took two exchange attempts to finally convince them to just swap to the new model. You might be lucky though.
