    Droid Slider Wearing Out?

    I got my Motorola Droid on December 30th and have loved it since but over the past few weeks the slider keeps getting harder and harder to open. It seems the are two gashes on the back of the screen where it seems something in the slider assembly is digging into it. Does anyone else have a similar issue?

    Hack a cool vinyl sticker to fit back there, and that should help

    Does that make it glide easier or something?

    I think so. metal on metal can get grind. The vinyl sticker will take the friction away as it wears....it takes awhile to wear, lol. I have had that sticker on for 3 months Quiets it, and smooths it out IMO.
