    My phone slides open way to easy. Is there any way to tighten it? I dont currently have a case on, would a seidio make it tighter? This is droid number two. Thanks to a broken headphone jack and have only had it a few days

    A Seidio case might help a little but not much. Mine was VERY tight before the case and it didn't make to much difference. If anything having the clip in the spaces 'loosened' it up a little. If your device is to far out of spec though the Seidio case might not fit your phone anyway. They are having a problem with their cases fitting some phones (supposedly a workaround/new case is in the works). There's a Seidio case thread if you want to peak in there.

    I am glad you were able to fix your situation. I was going to let you know that both myself and my husband have seidio cases and it did not tighten his screen up at all.

    i had a case and it did tighten it up. but too much, every time i slid it open it would type "xdrew" [one of several reasons it isn't on it now] but if anyone is still having that problem one strip of real [thick] duct tape will do the trick and still be smooth. :)
