Default Here's hoping the battery door's fixed

From what I've read, HTC has recognized that the battery door is an issue. Hopefully when I upgrade and get the inspire in March it's fixed. .

haha when my wife and I got ours (got the last 2) we watched the guy behind the counter have issues getting the door off to install the battery for every single one of them (another 4 or 5 sold while we where there)... mine seems to be the only one that isn't a complete struggle to get off...

but good news

You want it to be that difficult to take off.

Think about it. You shouldn't need to take it off but once. To put the battery in. It's that snug because it's what holds the battery in place. I would hate it if the battery door came off easily.

But that's just me.

I agree. Battery door once in will rarely if ever come off. Snug fit is desired

If they fix this, will I be able to get the new battery door with a current Inspire? Because I don't want to wait a month or two just for the battery door to be fixed....So if I buy it now, can it be upgraded to the better door later? Or no?

I think the thought of it being easier to get on/off (yet secure) is for those that carry a spare battery

I agree that it's good that the door will stay in place and that it doesn't have to be removed often, but it still bothers me a bit that I will run the risk of scratching this beautiful creature just to put the battery in or change it.

It's like buying a new car and the salesman says, "the door is really hard to open with the key (finally gets door open, but scratches paint near the handle) but once you are inside you can be certain it won't open while you're driving." I would be happy the door stays closed while I'm driving, but every day that scratch is going to bug me. It's a stretch of a metaphor, but that's how I feel. Also, I can't get the phone for another month and I am having a hard time hiding my jealousy. Just grabbing at straws to make the next month bearable. : )

If they fix it, will you remove your battery often? And when you remove it, what are you going to do with it? Should I be cleaning my battery, or the battery compartment? I don't get why its even a mention. Its like saying, the hood of my car is difficult to open. Doesn't really mean anything to me 99.9999999999999999999999999 % of the time.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. I am less concerned about opening the battery door than I am about scratching the case when I do. I'm okay with my OCD... really. Just want it to be perfect.

Nah man, you wont scratch the case unless you use something sharp to get it open. I used a fingernail, no big deal.

I dunno if I was lucky, but I had no problem getting mine off using my thumbnail... took about 5 seconds. I actually found it more difficult to get back on, didn't wanna break it, lol.

I agree with you. I found it pretty easy to get the battery cover off. I did not use the notch, I just wedged my finger nail under the corner and it popped right off. It did take me a few minutes to get it back on though.

Mine was easy to get off and back on! And I'm sure HTC is not sitting around right now thinking about the battery door. And you definitely know ATT isn't thinking about it.

Mine wasn't hard to remove. It did take 45 minutes to get the phone and get out the door, mostly because the guy wasn't familiar at all with the phone. i was the first one at my local store to get one, and I was actually showing him some things about the phone.

nah, I'm not a big fan of the volume rocker. It bugs me...It's too long and flat, and there's not enough feedback when you press it. Unless I'm looking at the screen, I wouldn't know if the volume is actually changing.

And back to the battery door, it doesn't have to be so loose that it falls off on it's own, but it should be easy enough to get off that you are able to whenever you need to. Some people may need to switch out batterries, others won't. But everyone opens it some time or another, and it only takes one try at opening it to scratch it.
And I guess if it gets scratched, you could probably buy a new battery door somewhere...haha

Get your thumbnail between the volume rocker and the battery door and pull (not pry) straight back until it pops loose. You may need to use a surprising amount of force. The cover may go flying across the room when it lets go, but it won't break

ok so i just couldnt get my battery door off, good thing there is an AT&T store right around the corner. and when i walked in and told the guy why i was there he wasnt surprised said he had a hard time with 4 inspires today getting the door off.

guess mine proved to be more difficult as he couldnt remove and had to ask a coworker for help. it took one to hold the phone and the other pop it off with his finger nail. and the look on his face as he did it was priceless i thought he broke his finger.

Pry from the middle of the door right under the middle of the volume controls. I will pop off with little to no effort. The guy at my local ATT store showed me this when I brought my brandnew inspire in there because I couldnt get into it to put the battery in. No fuss, and no damage. However, they had to learn the hard way on their display model. It was marred and mangled really bad. I would flip if they did that to mine.

I called the HTC Accessory hotline... I bought 2 Inspire 4G and both of the covers got a little scuffed up. I explained the situation and they overnighted me out 2 replacement covers.

They're aware of the issue, and for a part that costs pennies, they'll happily send out a replacement. Totally not necessary, considering if someone is careful when removing it won't damage it... so their willingness to replace it goes a long way in my book :-)

(PS - just for kicks I asked ATT and they said no replacement, they'd charge me if I wanted it replaced.... stupid ATT... so.... ATT=FAIL.... HTC=WIN)

Yes especially now that Apple is using Pentalobe screws. I special ordered the special tool and they're still nearly impossible to work with. Grrrrr. Apple's working overtime to turn their products into disposable appliances.

I had to replace my factory unlocked model and I looked at the bottom and saw the pentalobe screws and exclaimed "WTF!?!?!"

I swear Apple is doing all they can to drive customers to Android. I was an iPhone customer the last 3 models, and 2 weeks ago I switched over to Inspire 4G... OMG I see the light. I will NEVER go back to iphone after being exposed to the amazing features of Android

I'm platform neutral, since I work concurrently with a PC & Mac. After years of both I'm very familiar with Apple history. The way things are going now, I agree with you, Apples really mucking things up.

I've also had a huge number of smartphones on virtually all platforms and I've never been as excited with a mobile OS. The potential is staggering.

Yep, I'm the same way, I have a PC and a MAC, so I'm fairly unbiased, but I'm disappointed with recent Apple doings.

It says accessory sales aren't available, just have your serial number available and stay on the line. They're actually really nice.

Just a quick heads up, if you open the door between the volume rocker and the battery cover it'll pop right off rather easily.

There's like an area between the battery door and the volume rocker where you can stick your nail in. Just stick your nail in between the door and the volume rocker and it comes off really easily.

I also got a replacement for the battery door. I also mentioned that my sim/memory card door doesn't sit flush with the phone, the guy said they are also aware of that issue but that part is currently being shipped to them so to call back in a week or 2 and i can get it replaced then

My battery door isn't damaged, but my sim card door isn't flush on either side, like it sticks out on the sides, so I'm going to call them about it...

I called them and they said they don't have any currently, so I should call back later to see if they have any.
Also, is it just mine that's doing it? Or are all the Inspires doing it? Like on mine, If I slide my nail down the side of the phone, it catches on the sim card door cover.

yeah the sim card door they said would be available for replacement in 1-2 weeks.

On my sim card door its not the sides that are the problem the middle of my door pops up a little and i can feel it when i hold the phone and it annoys me.

The battery door is horrible design. Three coworkers with Inspires and all three of the volume rocker came off when trying to open door. We all are IT guys can open a computer case mo problem. I opened my battery vase cause phone froze didn't want to wait for reeboot. So sometimes as said need to open more than once.

That's strange. I have never had an issue with the battery door at all before. I just jam a finger nail underneath the cover next to the "-" sign next to the volume key. Pops off in a flash.

After prying around with it for about 6 months now, it is pretty loose to where if I drop it on a hard surface, 8/10 times it will pop off.

Kinda sucks, but then again, I try to keep a case on it now anyway, so I don't really have to worry about it.

I've got a rooted phone so I take the battery cover off to reset the phone whenever it freezes or bugs out. I remove it almost every day so by now it's not too loose, but not that hard to pop it off. I've got a case around it too so it doesn't unintentionally fall off.
