    Hi,

    I've just bought a K750i mobile phone - which I think is fantastic.

    But reading the reviews on Amazon, I note that many people have suffered
    problems with the joystick.

    Given the use it gets this is hardly surprising. Are people still having
    problems?

    Or has this problem been sorted with current production?

    Cheers

    Rab

    Never had a problem with it failing. It's a haven for dust, but a cocktail
    stick sorts that out.

    I've had that problem with it but sent it back to SE and had it back to
    me working again within 3 days (under warranty)

    Hey Guys,
    Mine was almost completely nonresponsive. I have taken the phone apart,
    dropped a little wd40 into the joystick and moved it about for a while, then
    blown out with compressed air. Completely fixed it. Same goes for the
    camera button which ceased to work for me. It's been like new for weeks
    now. Took 1/2 hour.

    Hi Ed, my wife's phone has just started to have the same problem. Do yu
    have any tips for dismantling the phone so I can try your remedy?

    TIA

    I've only had it for 3 weeks.

    Please don't tell me that ... I've just bought an 800 :-(

    The joystick does appear to be a weak point. Still Carphone Warehouse
    (UK) are fixing the 750, which I'm going to keep as a spare.
