How do u peoples keep your d1 from sliding open when in your pocket???
I have a rubber like case that makes the slider stiff.
If yours does that, I'd say that's a problem. You may want to return one for one that doesn't.
If my pants are a little tighter than normal, the screen side will grip against the outside fabric while the battery side grips my leg, and as I walk, it will slide the two apart.
OP, try putting it in a looser pocket?
If putting in left pocket, face out, butt down.
And yes, I do have that problem.
Never been an issue.
I've had the problem where the slider is just barely open... enough to mess me up when I'm trying to answer a call. At least I think that is what caused the problem... tried to drag my finger across the screen to pick up the phone and it just ignored my swiping motion and I missed the call.
The slider can be irritating at times... but then again, so can the on screen keyboard. I can't wait to spend a little time with a Droid 2 so I can decide if I want to go that route or Droid X instead.
I can see how this might happen, but I don't carry mine in a pocket becasue I almost always have stuff in there that might scratch my phone. I use the belt carrier from Verizon.
mines never even come slightly open and i don't use any cases or covers.
I added 2 strips of black electrical tape on the back of mine.
Good old American Ingenuity, FTW.
I've been meaning to do something like that tape trick myself. I often find it's slided slightly open after being in my pocket while I'm walking around. 2 strips of electrical tape, coming up!
(btw, I did not remove the plastic guard from the underside of the screen, behind the keyboard, and it still has that tendency to slide open)
Also, I may add a piece of tape to the inside of the battery cover to help that stay shut easier. I find that has a tendency to slide off without too much pressure.
