Hello Michael,

it would be nice to have some info about this white screen of death
plus vibrator which is affecting some people. Especially if that
is a hardware or software problem. It's pretty annoying and generally
happens if you want to show someone the phone :-( I cannot remember
any official statement on this issue - which is kind of sad.
