    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:

    I, too, have the line and wondered if it was a problem.

    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.
