Problem with my screen?
WHen my screen i displaying the "locked" scene (with the -slide to unlock- button) is appears there is a two tone shade on both the top and bottom of the screen. This can be seen whether it has the wallpaper, or if it is plugged in and charging.
Is this normal? It doesn't appear at any other times, but when it is plugged in and charging (and locked) it almost looks like a row of pixels is a different color or something.
Unfortunately, since it is locked, I don't think I can do a screen capture to show you.

I can't get a screen shot while the phone is locked.
I don't know if it is the screen (the glass part) because it doesn't appear when I have other pages or apps loaded. Just the "locked" screen.
I will try to take a picture of it or something.

Okay, I couldn't take a picture with my webcam, so I will try to describe it.
This is with the "locked screen", and it plugged in to charge (so you see the green battery). At the top (where the time is), there is a dividing line horizontally through the time, from one side of the screen to the other. Above this line, instead of a dark black, the screen is a lighter black, dark grey. Then, right under the date (below the time) there is (what appears to be) a single row of pixels (light grey again). This is mirrored on the bottem, with the light grey "bar" cutting through te middle of the "slide to unlock buttom".
With the phone not plugged in (I have a light colored wallpaper), the two areas are again noticable on the lock screen. I have a light wallpaper, so the "top area" again appears as a slightly opaque grey box (going right through the time on the top), and the lower rectangle appears as a darker black box.
When I unlock, these rectangles slide off the screen to the top and bottom.
When the phone isn't plugged in, it actually looks like it is supposed to be there - sort of like doors sliding partway closed from the top and bottom. But with the phone plugged in and the black background, it looks like the opaque boxes are still there, but because of the black background I only see the bottom line of pixels for the darker one.
Don't know if that made any sense or not. It's not a huge issue - I just want to make sure that there isn't anything wrong with it.

I have no serious problems. Once or twice the phone has completely crashed, some of the third party's crashed(but I expected that), and a few times trying to get out of stand-by the phone flashed, went black, then wouldn't turn back on again, then after a few home button pushes everything would be normal.
I've owned phones with WinMo though, so this pales -- on the scale of albino paleness -- in comparison.
I'm overall pleased. I just want more free apps and for exchange to push pictures.
