    first one I had creaked when a little pressure was put on the curved area of the back side. I had to take it and exchange it due to the home "button" being non responsive. The new one that I received is solid as a rock. Also noticed, my first one had the At&t globe with AT&T to the right of it in the upper left corner. This new one just has the AT&T globe. Not sure if anything other than that has changed between the earlier batches and this one.

    So I've had two yellow devices with the same issue. It's obvious that it's a common issue from this and other threads, so I'm wondering if more recent shipments still have this problem?

    These threads have really died down but I refuse to believe this is an isolated issue.

    I sent mine to Nokia Care and it was fixed on that day itself. Creaking was in between power and shutter buttons, as well as all over the back cover.

    Now its all firmed up. Didn't ask what the solution was coz was rushing.

    It might be worth asking what the issue is. I'm on my third yellow replacement and each one has exactly the same issue - creaking on the back and on the left side.

    My replacement lumia creaked at the sim tray slot. It now creaks at the bottom on the left side and occasionally on the right side above the volume rocker too.

    Anyone notice that it is worse when the phone is hot? I guess the polycarbonate expands a bit when it gets hot and causes it to creak more. Right now I can't get it to creak at the volume rocker but when it is hot it is very easy to do and loud. Still much better than my original one so I'm going to keep it and not risk getting one that is as bad as my first one.

    Same issue with my new cyan 920 I've had for 3 weeks. Worse when warm. Wanted to exchange until I went into an AT&T store and both their demo phones had the same problem. I suspect all of these will creak over time. No cyan phones in stock to exchange with anyway. I love my phone and its color, but the creaking plastic is getting old, fast.
