    No, it's not a hardware problem.

    Using the compass takes some patience. Once I got mine set I never want to touch it again. You just need to keep turning it until the color changes, it will eventually.

    I don't know what to tell you. Take it to a Verizon store. They will probably give you a new phone. But if you have the same issue, then it's your patience that's not working.

    Like I said when I finally got mine set, and you have to be quick I said I'm not touching this again.
