    Yup, bound to happen to someone sooner or later, noticed it was gone when I took it off the holster. Any tips on how to sweettalk a rep for a replacement? Haha

    The replacement is only 4.99. Others that have had it fall off reported that. Some of the people that have it sliding off easy have been able to sweet talk a replacement for free. Other who lost the cover all ready have had to pay 4.99.

    Prob not. I wouldn't expect them to have that. They don't have them for other devices unless they have an FRU lying around still.

    I'm afraid to lose mine too, it seems to come off way too easily.

    I was thinking of trying to use that tacky stuff you can buy at stores to tack posters up on walls without ruining paint.. just a little bit around the edges or something.. to see if that will hold it on better. Very seldom replace a battery or need to open it.

    quick update
    I was able to get a replacement cover at a local VZW store! However I correlated my issue to the verizon holster which i keep my droid in.

    It amazes me that such a design flaw could have gone thorough all of their beta testing without being corrected. That cover comes off everytime I take it out of my pocket and anytime I let someone else look at my phone... the battery cover comes off in their hand, because they get the slide direction for the keyboard confused. I am very happy with the machine... but, that battery cover nonsense makes you realize that incompetence can't seem to be eliminated.

    Just curious, did the back of your batter cover have a padding? The replacement i got has one, much stiffer.

    My battery cover has a very small pad in the middle about an inch wide by an inch and a half. It sounds like, if there are some where the battery covers don't come off easily, that they may have fixed this mid-stream of their initial production. We probably got the "lemons." As a long time "early adopter," I have seen this phenomenon many times.

    This is similar to the illogical software design flaw where the pinch and expand gesture touch (which is one of the defining iphone features) was omitted. All these things will be probably corrected for those who buy in the second quarter and hopefully for us in quick updates (and repairs).

    But it's always fun to be first.

    Mine has padding and a little picture of a crossed out trash can to help me remember not to throw it away. :icon_eek:

    My door slightly moved one time, but it was pretty much my fault. Otherwise, it has stayed secure. It was good to see they had replacements online though.
