1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Verizon's way to promote their logo. Interesting and clever...not.

    (Luckily no problems with battery door for me and if I did I suggest going through Motorola, even shelling out a few extra dollars to avoid the billboard on the back of your phone.)

    That is definitely not acceptable! I got my replacement cover today... My cover was not real bad before, but my friend recently got the phone and hers does not come off ever unless u try... My new cover however sorta puckers up so there is a new lip to bother the crap out of me! Cant see it, but I sure can feel it!

    Mine's been just fine--it's tight. Still, I contacted Motorola and they sent me out a replacement via 2nd-day air and seems a little thicker than the original. At any rate, I don't have to go the bandaid route.

    You are right Mega... I have the original door my Droid came with and a Motorola replacement door. The foam tape on the inside of the door of the replacement is a little thicker than the foam tape on the original door. Compared side-by-side that is the only difference.

    I'm not having a problem at all with my door, is it the newer (launch days ) phones, or in general? Should droids users call Motorola and have a spare in case?

    I have mine in a body glove so I really haven't had to deal with this issue. I do agree the vzw fix/workaround is not acceptable at all.

    My battery door fits nice and snug. VZW tried to pull that crap on me though with my Blackberry Tour, though. They put a few strips of electric tape on the inside of the door to make it not move around so much. Actually, that was the day I about blew up in the store and had them exchange it for my Droid, 5 months into my new contract.

    Just because that's one store did doesn't mean that that's officially Verizon's fix. That's more a joke than anything.
