As mentioned in the ITT post, this topic has been discussed in this newsgroup[1] suggesting it is a known hardware fault and there is also a bugzilla entry[2], but with no comment from Nokia (how odd).

Owners are attempting to obtain an official response from Nokia customer support before returning their devices as defective - the last thing we want is a refurbished but still faulty replacement.

The lack of any official response from Nokia is unimpressive to say the least. I'm sure none of us want to step it up and demand satisfaction, but unless Nokia begin to acknowledge the fault it may have to come to that. :(
