    Just wondering how everyone's keyboard slider is working? Especially would like to hear from those that have had their phone since november. has it gotten excessively easy or has it stayed pretty tight? Just wondering if a year from now is my phone going to just slide open too easily or will it keep its tightness some what?

    bought at the beginning of december. I even took off that plastic inbetween the screen and the keyboard and my keyboard still has that firm click when sliding.

    must say i thought itd get looser but its still where id like it to be

    First one was loose, Second one is perfect and hasn't loosed up a bit..It could have been designed better but if it were up to me......it would be there...

    I received mine January 25th.

    Its clicks and snaps when it is slid into its correct position guides. But:

    a) it does unlock, and slide off locking guides when in pocked at times
    b) when holding phone, sometimes my fingers will push it out of lock

    I think we all experience B. It's they way we hold it, the design didn't compensate for that.

    Mine's holdin up pretty good...had it since November 21st...

    This is one thing I'm a little paranoid about though...lol..I took the plastic off in January I think but it hasn't really made a difference IMO...maybe a little easier to slide but not much...still snaps firmly into place..

    '


    Definitely have both of those issues but it's the crappy design of the phone not because it's worn out.

    Have any of you guys ordered those stickers that go on the back of the droid? Just wondering if they make the slider tighter or not? They are the stickers that someone sells on this forum. They have like a droid guy or the word droid and different designs like that on the back of your screen.

    Got mine on 1/09/10 and it still works good. It seemed to come unlocked a little easier but nothing too bad. Just hoping that a year from now its not just sliding open with no effort at all. I dont think it will though.

    Had mine since 12/6. Getting more loose every day, and I never use it. If I did't have a case, it'd probably flop open. Glad to see mine's the exception.

    Same here. I kept my first one in my pocket. Not sure if that is related but the slider seemed to separate on the left side (maybe something wedged it a bit). It took 3 stores by I found a rep who had a DROID and agreed that was not the way it should work and did an exchange. No problems with the new one but I did get a belt clip just to be safe.
