    when you slide the phone open and take a look at the back piece behind the screen, you will notice a clear film stuck there. I assume it's to allow the phone to slide open and shut without scaring the plastic. well my plastic film is all chewed up and causing it to be a pain in my ass to open and close. is this something i can just peel off and everything be OK, or should i take it to verizon and make them deal with it?

    I pulled mine off. Just dont tear your phone in half -- I've heard some horror stories of people destroying their phones trying to get at that plastic with too much gusto.

    Ha, I had the same problem for a long time..Till I realized, it's meant to come off..just like the plastic that comes on the front of the screen..It looks a lot cleaner when you take it off..

    No, the idiot is the guy who breaks his phone in half. You're just sort of there...

    Have a good one.

    I took mine off after I wore a grove into it and it was peeling on its own.

    Just take it off. Some guy asked Moto/VZW and they said to. Plus, when you think about it, why would they engrave those lines in the back if they just wanted it to be covered.

    Lines, what lines? I can't see any lines because they're covered. :)
