    I think he was kidding with you. Post of the day = POTD.

    I don't know what to tell you, Sean. It shouldn't do that. Maybe you want to take that one back to the Verizon store.

    Which pocket do you keep it in? Keep anything else in the same pocket? Hook's right, it shouldn't be doing that and I haven't heard of anyone else having the same reoccurring issue. I would think it has to either be a faulty phone, battery is coming loose, or the power button is somehow getting pressed?

    well

    I had the same issue and the darn battery door seems to be a "loose trigger" once you have used your phone a bit, and will come off quite easily. I wonder if the droid fourms store has a replacement....some awesome things on there!! Droid Accessories at The Droid Forums Store

    Ive had this problem once, and my slider being popped open a litte. I think my prob was i had my phone in power down and it got held down and shut down. I keep it right side up now and my only prob is it will slide a tad open but doesnt effect anything.

    My first phone had a loose battery cover. It would come off when the droid slid out my my pocket. The solution was a piece of scotch tape...and no, nobody noticed it:) Phone number two has a cover that snaps into place.

    Once again this forum is a wealth of information. Tight pants = droid shuts off. :laugh:
