ha, I hate the Storm 9550, been through 11 replacement for the same thing, the ear piece speaker blown. After thinking about it, I can't deal with the 9550 anymore. Might just get the DX again and then after a year, get a phone with LTE. The handoff of around2 mins from LTE to 3G is a big no-no for me.
lol. I remember I had to get a new one 2 days in because of the screen messing up and it was good for about 4 months then every replacement I got, about a month in, the ear piece speaker started to get distorted.
