I woke up this morning and there is a damn ant walking under my screen, it better doesn't die in a visible place, I'll try using sugar to lure it out, but anyways keep your device away from these damn ****s.


Edit: OK guys for now I think that I managed to crush it under one of the corners by applying pressure as soon as it left the screen, but you wouldn't want to wake up to a dead ant in the middle of your screen.

Re: Keep your n10 away from ants
Wow. Thanks for the heads up. I just moved my n10 away from my ant farm.

How is this possible? I'm pretty sure that the screen area needs to be airtight to prevent buildup of dust. Does your screen have dust under it?

If an ant got in then that must mean that it is not airtight.

God ****ing damn it, the damn ant was hiding and I come back to find it dead in the middle of my screen.

And no, there isn't any dust under the screen, I don't know how this POS got in there.

Don't laugh, in December I thought "damn that's bad, I don't think that will happen to me" when I saw a similar thread and now look at this...

And if Samsung doesn't want to cover it I can use my back flex as an excuse to force them to do so... Right?

If you ordered from the Play Store you can start there..855-836-3987.

Good luck, I hope this gets resolved... I'm thinking about carrying a stick of Grant Kills Ants in my N10 bag...

How else? Do they have an email for these things? I'm not in the US so calling is troublesome.
