lol...that's an old Blackberry trick...hehehe
the base of mine squeaks with the HTC 1500 battery, but other than that, no.
Ya mine does, but it doesn't really bug me anymore. I think it's probably due to taking the back off often. It never did when I first got the phone. I'll probably get the HTC 1500mah battery soon and I've heard that can help because it's slightly thicker than the 1300mah.
Mine does on the right side. This is where the sd card is though. Maybe it's because there's a gap in the chassis? (lol need better word)
From my Incredible Drooooiiiiiid.
Yea. It is from the gap where the sd card ls.
Mine does not squeak.
Is there anyone with the squeak who has only ever used the stock 1300mAH battery (the red one that comes with the phone)?
I ask because, based on a couple of the comments, I wonder if this is due to using one of the replacement batteries then going back to the stock battery.
I just got the HTC 1500mAH and it's a tad bit thicker than the stock 1300mAH. If the Seidio 1750mAH is also a little thicker, then perhaps the battery cover is being bent ever so slightly by the larger battery. Then when you put the thinner 1300mAH back in the cover doesn't fit quite right.
I haven't put the 1300mAH back in yet and don't have it at work with me, so I can't test this theory.
This works!! Thank you so much.
I tried the business card trick but to no avail. How much of the card did you guys put in there? Did you make it overlap the battery itself?
I just cut it so that it wouldn't cover the speaker grill. It is not folded. Right on top of the battery. Then put the cover on and no more squeak.
I wonder if putting a card in there will cause the phone to run hotter?
Do you have the standard battery? I have the extended. Maybe that's the problem with mine.
No...this will not make the phone work harder thus creating more heat.
I have the standard.
Its not that it makes the phone work harder. Im wondering if the card will trap heat, not allowing the phone to dissipate heat as efficiently.
I was thinking this as well. I didn't block a lot of the phone. The battery can get very hot. I was going to check tomorrow to see how it's doing and I've been monitoring the battery temp.
The business card is a good idea. I wonder if it would fit in whole? Good backup if you meet a bangin babe.
Oh and hey look, my phone is red inside.
Win, win, win.
mine squeeks. probably because i take the cover off on every other day to change my battery. but i have a case too, so the squeeking is not a big deal for me.
Cool. My Incredible has been creaking and squeaking a ton the past few weeks. I couldn't even touch it anywhere without the back cover making loud noises. The business card trick works great. No more sounds at all.
And it's funny too because now the phone feels just a bit heavier. A business card only weighs so little but I definitely notice the phone feeling a slight bit heavier, which isn't a bad thing.
Mine does with the stock battery but not with the seidio battery
Mine makes creaking/squeaking sound or did. I put a few super super small pieces of duct tape ( we're talking a few mm by a few mm ) on the inside of the battery door on the radius along the bottom. Makes zero sound now.
It's a plastic battery door so i'm not surprised it makes sounds on many phones. The tape trick works and it's on the inside of the batt cover so I don't see it unless i take the battery door off and even then i don't really notice it, only a few millimeters
I bought the 1500mAh HTC battery and since it's slightly fatter than the stock Inc battery, the case squeak is totally gone.
lol...this is why I love this forum...mine was making noise but I'm not the type that usually complains so I thought I would search the forums and see if anyone else was having this problem...and sure enough some ppl are, and provided such an easy fix...the business card trick works sure enough...that's awesome.
Got my TP2 1500mAh battery this weekend and my Incredible shall nary a squeak again, thats for sure
That's what I was trying to get at.
I put my stock battery back in today and, sure enough, noticed the sides of my phone were squeaking. I popped the 1500 back in and it stopped immediately.
that is so hilarious. now i know why i have never even heard of this squeaking...i've never had the original 1300 battery. only the 2150 and the 1500 i am currently using. wow...squeaking. that is just weird right there, htc.
