    The other day when I was talking to Verizon about the voice search problem I mentioned to the tech rep that my battery cover had fallen off when I took the phone out of my pocket. Today Fedex show up with the new and improved cover.

    THANK YOU Verizon

    Did you have to ask for them to send you a new one or did they just blindly throw one to you by way of FedEx?

    Some people were having issues depending on when you got your Droid with the battery cover sliding and or falling off.

    I didn't ask at all. Just told them that mine fell off when I took the phone out of my pocket. They wanted to confirm my address and today BINGO. Packing slip shows $4.95 and a $4.95 discount

    It seems that the "pad" between the cover and the battery is thicker, it's wider for sure. The new cover takes a lot harder push to put on.

    That's amazing. Coming from AT&T I'm still trying to wrap my head around actual customer support.

    Yeah, that's a known issue with the original battery cover. VZW and/or Motorola will replace it for free. FYI (for others) You just need call (either company) or go onto the Moto support site and they will send you a new one (for free). I would do it sooner rather than later thought because they have given out a TON of these and don't know how much longer they will continue with 'no hassle' replacements.

    Funny I have been into VZW store 3 times already and complained about the cover falling off , the Techs say "buy a plastic cover for the phone" , and I say "it will not fit into the Car Dock then , you going to refund me for the car dock ?" Of course they look like stunned deer in headlights , it seems the common answer is buy something or shut up . :mad:
    And still did not address my battery problem , maybe I need to go to a different store . :icon_eek:
