    Quick fix for the loose battery door.

    mine is perfectly fine but a buddys was soo loose he could actually shake the phone in his hand to make it fall off.

    so the solution i did was i took his battery out then cut a buisness card to fit under the battery causing it to slightly raise the battery up and push up on the cover.

    now his battery cover is really snug and actually takes a decent amount of effort to get off.

    i was going to post pics but i think this is simple enough for people to figure out.


    hope this helps those complaining about the loose/easy to get off door.

    Thanks.

    This worked perfect. This was my one hangup with my new Droid and your fix worked like a charm. Thanks.

    I don't think it has to be a 'bad' battery cover for it to happen. If you carry the phone in your front pocket and walk around a lot, the rubberized cover is gripped by your pocket fabric and it just kind of pulls it off.

    Short of a slick metal or plastic battery cover, the card might be the solution.

    Had the same exact issue in the middle of Speedway on Sat. Pulled it out of my pocket and the cover went flying!

    battery covers are out of stock - alternate fix

    I just bought a droid in December and noticed right away that the battery cover kept falling off. Lost it at a baskeball game this weekend, and Verizon is out of stock. As an alternate solution, I cut out a square of plastic screen protector and stuck it over the area. Since it is recessed, there's no force on the plastic when you take it in and out of your pocket. It completely solves the problem.
