    I got a refurb. Droid2 in the mail yesterday and after playing with it this morning and then using my first droid2, it seems like the keyboard is alot more difficult to open, like its getting jammed alittle or something. Im just curious if this is something that goes away after some use or if I should request another one.

    Do you know if it ever goes away? I could accept that it feels alittle jerky closing just knowing that it needs to be "worked" smooth... but if it ain't gonna change i can return this one for a new one...

    i have had 3 refurbs in the mail and on 2 of them the keyboard was almost stiff feeling for the first couple days of sliding it open then it seemed to go away or maybe whatever kind of material is causing it to be stiff might have just worn off

    So it eventually started sliding smoothly? I'm worried mine might mess up the keyboard or something when its sliding open... but i may also be overly paranoid...

    Yea all my keyboards that i have gotten and found to be sticky have worked out to slide smooth. As long as you dont see the slider ripping up corners of keys or hear the slider picking at the corners of keys you are fine
