    This is very easy to replicate and seems to be a huge oversight. I expect it should be fixed very soon. Start playing music through the speaker on your 900 using the music hub and then press the windows key. The tell me client will pop up and the capacitive keys will become non responsive. Turn the screen off and back on,slide up the lock screen and press the back button. Every time you press it for a short time, not a hold, it will bring up the multitasking cards. On my phone this also killed the camera button from waking the phone, but that may be coincidence. All I know is I cannot play music on the phone and navigate, and my camera button does not wake up the phone.

    Ok just got back from the store and exchanged my lumia. thankfully they had one last one and the new one does not seem to have the back button problem, so for all those having the problem, i would advise you all to exchange it.

    Sounds like I should go exchange mine. I didn't want to have to do that because I have had no other issues on mine. Hopefully the one I exchange for won't have the issue and be clear of the other issues that people seem to have.

    Maybe I'll stop on the way home from work and see if my store has any cyan ones to exchange with. Do I need to bring the box and charger to do the exchange?

    Just experienced this on a call with the speakerphone on, phone had been fine all day with browsing and other stuff. Restarted and it didn't do it again when I tried. Not sure if I'll exchange yet.

    You do realize that you folks exchanging you L900s for diddly crap are keeping interested users from trying out the phone. Its a software button. Its a software problem. Bet you a Lumia you will experience it again. Nokia is getting to it (it would take HTC a year, and Samsung probably wouldn't bother) but they have other balls to juggle right now. Like trying to save a company.

    You may be right and I hope it is a software issue. But, it is quite frustrating when you are playing a game or listening to some music and your phone becomes uncontrollable. Should I only play games or listen to music through the headphone jack? Or I guess I can restart my phone every time that I play a game. If I do anything through the speaker for more than a couple minutes it happens.

    It does seem like it would be a software problem but on the other hand it doesn't seem like too many people are having the problem and a lot of people claim that it doesn't happen to theirs. I talked to Nokia today and they suggested that it was a hardware problem (the guy didn't seem to want to walk through the issue with me much though) and that I should exchange (was holding off hoping it was a software problem). Unfortunately my AT&T is out of the cyan version at the moment.

    Other than this I have had no issues with my phone and would hope that I wouldn't deter others from trying it - I just don't want it to be a hardware issue and get worse with time.

    I like my screen naked, I have to trust the gorilla glass. Tried a screen protector and it felt wrong.

    You do realize that when there's an iPhone 4S, Galaxy SII out there that no one has to put up with anything? None of us are obligated to help bail Nokia out. It's sink or swim time.

    Truth is until you know for sure it's not software related then you should at least go most of your 30 days. You could easily waste your time exchanging several before you realize it's a bug in all of them.

    I'll agree with you there but since it is so hard to find the cyan versions i want to make sure I can find one before my 30 days are up.

    All the people who say you are pressing on the back button too long are wrong.

    I have the same issue but my Nokia Lumia 900 was not pre-ordered, it was bought from Phones 4 U in England.

    It happens most often in the Nokia Music application and it has a mind of its own. Sometimes it does not respond and other times it goes straight to multitasking.

    Another thing I noticed is it happens with the Windows home button as well sometimes. A normal short tap goes straight to voice control.

    In gaming it quite often goes off without even touching the soft keys! :@ :(

    And yet there have been a number of Nokia updates and a lot of time has passed and still nothing!

    No there is a problem here and it is very annoying.

    it is most definitely a hardware issue. My first 900 had the task switcher pop up frequently even while my phone was on a table. TellMe would randomly pop up, and it always happened when I was using the speakerphone. So whole playing a game, watching a video, playing a game, or listening to music.
