    Is anyone else experiencing a thin "grey line" that occurs when on the "lock" screen. It goes away once you unlock the phone, but will stay there if the phone is in portrait or landscape. I didn't install anything recently besides the mototorch led. I will try and get a picture of it.

    Yes, I have that too. Just under the clock right? I think its a dividing line between the clock and the rest of the screen... When it is charging, the percentage is right below the grey line. I dont understand what you are saying about portrait and landscape mode though.

    I think it's supposed to be like that. It separates the date and time from the rest of the lock screen.

    But it is quite the eye-sore. Not to mention, the first week+ i never had this grey line appearing. So obviously something has gone astray........:mad:

    no it's always been there......

    it's part of the lockscreen that acts as sort of a banner.

    There is no problem you are fine. We ALL have it..

    Not too sure why this bothers you though. It's a thin line on the lockscreen. I could see if it was on the homescreen but it's not.

    There was another thread about this, I don't understand why it bothers people. The line is so thin. It just helps to breakup the stuff on the lock screen. Time/Date go above the line and charge percentage, alarms, etc go beneath it. That way you don't just have a ton of text all together.

    Sorry guys. Line was not there when I bought my phone, nor do I want to look at it. It just showed up a couple hours ago. To the Verizon store I go...

    I have to ask...

    Exactly what do you expect to achieve via the Verizon store?

    I seriously doubt that they'll either know or (really) care about such an insignificant anomaly.

    It's Thanksgiving... Why not just try to enjoy time with family and stop sweating the small shi!te.​

    Quoted for truth. I guess it's just a personal preference, I myself think the lock screen would look weird without the divider line.
