    Droid feeling slightly loose

    Ok let me see if I can explain. The Droid itself seems sturdy and the display slides good with no problems of it feeling loose or sliding out too easily. The problem is when the keyboard is not extended. There is a slight gap between the display and the keyboard underneath on the left side. You can't really see the the gap but when you use the touchscreen on the left side of the display you can feel it "close the gap" and it sorta makes a noise that the two halves touch. It's seems like it's just a minor thing but its enough that is can be aggravating when you are using the touch screen to type and it "feels different" cuz of that clicking from the gap on the left side and feels like you are lamost double tapping. Anyone else experience this?

    I just checked my phone based on your description and yes, there is some mechanical movement between the 2 halves of the phone along that left edge but, I have never noticed it while typing or using the touchscreen.

    I think some degree of clearance is necessary to allow the phone to have a detent into both the open and closed position.

    It may be excessive on your hardware but, mine is barely noticeable and I've never noticed it before.

    Good luck....

    Has your dad thought about returning it for another because of it? Yes it is very annoying.

    No, I kept it on. I remember reading some threads a while ago about taking it off but mine slides just fine and I figured it being there is keeping it more protected than by removing it. Am I wrong? It really doesn't look like it should be removed even though I know others have said it is there just for shipping purposes.

    I think that the sticker would make it more tight then without it. Maybe you can exchange the phone if it is bothering you.

    Mine has a little play, but it's not enough to bother me and does not effect use.

    I wanted a keyboard too. I just wish it was more like the keyboard on a Voyager. I would gladly sacrifice a little more thickness for a better keyboard. My wife has the Voyager and that keyboard is very easy to type on.

    I am gonna remove the sticker and see if it changes anything.
