    Hey guys, just upgraded my recently deceased droid x with a bionic. Love the phone but after having it for one day the power/lock switch went from being very firm to loose feeling and squeaky. Is this normal for these phones? I mean if i need to get a replacement i can but if its going to happen again ill live with it.

    I am not sure if it is common or not. I don't have this problem though.

    My power button is fine. My volume rocker is loose like that however. If I shake my phone I can hear it rattling around a bit. This how your power button reacts to a small shake?

    Yep, as mentioned above, my volume rocker has always been a bit loose, but not the power button.

    I have this same problem with my power button but I kinda thought it was meant to be that way. Doesn't really bother me so I still probably won't do anything about it.
