    Alright, all you bionic owners, I need your input. My phone no longer sits flat against my desk...or did it ever. Lately it has been annoying my to no end because when I type on it, it rocks from corner to corner. Now, I don't remember it ever doing this before so I need to know if yours is like this or mine is just warping. The bottom left corner sits high on any surface and the other 3 corners touch. When i press down while typing or hitting any of the fixed buttons the damn thing jumps up and down. let me know what you think.

    My Bionic sits flat, but it has the extended battery.

    Is your battery cover warped or not seated right? Mine lays perfectly flat.

    Yeah, Cover is on correctly, and no gaps when i check the phone all the way around. I didn't think it was like that before. I have taken the battery cover on and of severall times with the same results.

    Mines always sat flat. You might consider holding phone in hand while you type.

    Check if your battery is warped.

    Just checked mine and it's warped also. Does not lay flat on it's back or it's front.

    I dropped it on my kitchen floor a few days ago. No visible damage or functionality problems but I assume that's what did it.
    By holding the phone firmly and twisting it I was able to get it to lay flat again.

    mine sits flat, and I can sure see both issues here, your phone should be cradled in your two hands typing with your thumbs, I just tried to do it on the table and it was typo city (mine DOES sit flat by the way). I also agree that yeah that phone warping is definitely and issue. Mine sits flat and it never gets torqued in any way. You don't perchance carry your phone in a snug hip pocket do you? That could warp the chassis over time, the battery cover is flexible enough to follow the warp. If that happens to be the case you're gonna eventually crack the display and touch screen as well.

    I have had the same exact issue. I also do not remember if it happened since day one, but I noticed it a long while back.

    I have already gotten mad for some reason and thrown mine against the wall. It almost stuck like a ninja star. The phone still works great no cracks or scuff marks. I love my bionic. I felt bad afterward it wasnt even the bionic's fault!
