    I have been carrying my Droid around in my pocket for the past couple of days, and the back cover keeps coming off. It slides into place, but it seems to slide off very easily. Is anyone else experiencing this, or is it an isolated problem?

    Thanks!

    Yup, the exact same thing happens to me, I am thinking of putting a Body Glove or different case, because it gets kinda annoying. :)

    I think it's a pretty common issue. I would recommend a case or something like that to prevent that from falling off and to protect it from harm in general.

    I do have to say...you must be wearing some pretty tight pants to get the battery cover to come off so much. I never have the issue when I'm wearing khakis or some jeans.

    Mine does, however come off in my hand...which is a tad fustrating.

    @New2u: Dont get a body glove! It makes pocketing your phone nearly impossible as the material sticks to everything!

    The first time it took me a second to get it off, but now if i just put it in my pocket it will fall off. If you push down in the middle yes it will take a little to push it down and get it off, but if you push on both sides of the panel, it will move VERY easily down.

    same here CK, mine is a pain to get off. Which is fine because I shouldn't have to take it off for any reason that I can think of. I can only imagine it coming off in my pocket if my pants were pretty tight which isn't how I roll haha

    My pants are pretty baggy, and it falls off with ease in there. I guess every droid wasn't built the same.

    Thanks for the replies and the info about the Body Glove case. Definitely not tight pants :).

    I have only had the problem when taking the phone out of my pocket. This has happened with jeans and with loose shorts.

    I will definitely look for a good case for it since I am already addicted to this thing.

    I had a Blackberry before this phone, and I bought what they call a soft touch hard case from the Verizon store. It felt rubberized, similar to the back cover on the Droid, and it would not grab when placing it in your pocket. I am hoping Verizon or someone makes one for the Droid.

    Thanks

    One of these cases should show up soon. Pretty much any phone that has hard cases will eventually have a rubberized hard case. Verizon also has one that looks like it is covered in leather instead of body glove material.

    *FOUND OUT* what the problem was with this, if you slide off the back cover and look at the letters on one side it appears they read "Motorola Engineering". PROBLEM SOLVED! :D

    So true! But I have the same issue and my pants are NOT tight. A case should solve this issue. Im personally waiting to see what Seidio comes out with.

    Lol, yep i read this problem and didn't notice for the first few hours but now my back has fallen off through general use about 4 times in 2 days (albeit i dont think i've put it dow for much of that 2 days).

    This is a design issue and something motorola will need to address with a retrofit for affected handsets. so far my back hasn't been damaged when coming off but only a matter of time.

    Take it to you local Verizon store. Make them fix or replace it.
