    Did they ever resolve this issue? I just ask because lately it's been damn near impossible to keep the back of my phone on. It's getting quite irritating and my battery has even fallen out a few times.

    I have no clue if it's still available, but a while back you could get up to 3 backs for free, and I ordered mine up right away. The new one held on a lot better and I only replaced one because I got some super glue prints on it. So like I said, I'm not sure if it's still around, but maybe search to see if you can maybe snag up a new one.

    Also, you could try to bend the metal gap (with a flathead screwdriver or something similar) where the battery cover indentation sits. I did this before I got my replacement backs and it seemed to work for a while, but needed to be re-bent every so often.

    Take a square of electrical tape about the size of a postage stamp, and put it on the white pad on the inside of the back cover. This will increase the pressure on the hooks holding the back on. Since I did this, I've never had the back fall off again. But it's still easy enough to open if I need to get at the battery.

    I too used the electrical tape option to increase pressure. I know for a while if you went into a corporate store they were giving away new covers and the only difference was that piece was thicker from what I heard.

    I never had this problem when I had the DROID. It always stayed on.
