    If I bump my phone or for example let it drop 1 inch and land on a desk it shuts off. Sometimes it I toss it onto my bed it will shut off instantly as well. I'm thinking the battery isn't secure or something because if I take the battery cover off and push down on the battery then bump it against my hand it doesn't shut off. Does anyone else have this problem? What should I do?

    I have ot had this issue. Does your battery cover have a ~ 1" x 3/4" black piece of foam on the back (against battery when on the phone)

    Well I just called HTC and he wasn't much help. After I suggested it was the battery he was like "oh yeah that must be it!" sigh. I guess I'll go down to Verizon and ask them what to do.
