    I am, actually, but it doesn't really effect the case in general. I thought it was supposed to be that way.

    I have one of the first ones that came out.

    I bought a no name case off the cart at the mall cause it was a hard case and it has a pop out stand, and I have the same problem with one corner doesnt click in. Looking at the back of the phone its the upper left corner, just above the volume keys. Doenst affect it but bothers me for some reason.

    Is it possible that the camera sticking out just a little is affecting it? It's in the same corner that you guys are describing.

    I too was having issues. Resolved them by taking off the battery cover before putting the case on. Still have a loose corner on the face of my phone (screen half), but that doesent bug me as much.

    the case is actually sitting nicely on the phone now...the back wont click in place but its still on pretty secure ...i learned to appreciate the case after i went a day without it and the little m on the back got all scratched while i was working...working in a warehouse and smartphones do not go good together

    I can get it to snap all the way on but it is very hard to do and fits very tight. I usually just take the battery cover off. I take the case off and on a lot because it doesn't fit in my running sleeve (I need to find one that can fit my case I think). With the battery cover off it fits fine, which I think is poor design, but whatever, make it work I guess.

    Yep taking the back off is the trick I believe. I just bought a trident aegis case for the little droid and I had to take the back off too.

    I had the same problem til I realized I was putting it over the extended battery. So just took the battery cover off altogether and win.
