    do they charge a restocking fee on straight up returns on phones? if you can just return it without being charged, just take it back and get another one.

    I'm on my second droid and it doesn't seem like the speaker grill is properly attached in the middle. If you push on it, it will go in easily. Maybe some others can check theirs as well.

    well... it's metal with a sticky backing that's covering a large speaker. it's a real speaker grill covering a real speaker. of course it's going to seem loose.

    Last night, I was running my finger along the speaker "grill" and noticed that it pushes in along the middle, closest to the "return, menu, home, search" end of the phone. I've only had the phone a couple of weeks and have never dropped or damaged the phone. Do you think it's just designed that way?

    It's not dented, it springs back into place. It only moves when you press on it.

    Good catch...

    You're right, that is how it's put together. The actual location of the speaker is the same location where my screen pushes in.

    There isn't an app for that, but a solution for all:

    DON'T PUSH ON IT!

    Has anyone found a website that sells a replacement speaker grill yet? My damn cat decided to take a few bites into the speaker cover when my alarm went off this morning. In my opinion verizon/motorola should offer replacement grill covers because they are so goddamn flimsy. I have read that they probably did this so people didn't tamper with the phone. If they didn't want people to tamper with the phone they should have chosen a different option then an obviously weak speaker cover, since it is on the outside of the phone and it protects the speaker. Just my two cents.


    Damn cat.

    Verizon should offer you a replacement speaker cover because your cat screwed your cover up? I'm sorry, but I just don't understand that logic.

    Offer replacement covers TO BUY, sorry if I didn't make that clear. Obviously my cat biting my phone is not verizon/motorola's fault lol.
