    Ok its probably nothing but I need to be sure. I noticed a piece of plastic was peeling tha I hdad never seen before. So since it was peeling I took it off.

    It didn't come off as smooth as the stuff did ehen I first bought it. So I'm not sure if it was suppose to be there or if its ok to peel it off.

    If you're talking about the plastic on the back of the display section, there was a lot of debate when the Droid first came out as to whether that plastic was supposed to be removed or not. Of those who removed it, some claimed the sliding/opening of their keyboard seemed better, and others claimed it got worse and wished they had never removed it.

    Mine is still on and I haven't had any problems attributable to this plastic. But if yours is already off and it's not causing any problems with the sliding mechanism, I wouldn't worry about it much. The only thing I would suggest is to keep an eye on this mechanism as your warranty date approaches so you don't wake up two days after it expires and suddenly start noticing problems.

    Since you included such important details in your amazing post including where the plastic you peeled off even was ... i'm going to assume you just pulled the plastic off the back of the sliding screen. The piece of plastic was actually tied into the electronics of the phone. It was designed as a theft deterrent. Now that you have pulled it off your phone recognizes the phone as stolen and exactly 72 hours from when it was removed the phone will lock down and only a motorola tech can unlock it again. It also is considered tampering and you will not be eligible for a warranty replacement. Hope you have insurance. I would immediately begin hand writing all your contact's names and #'s down on a piece of paper, you will probably loose those too




































    If you believed me your a sucker ....... next time do a search. Took me 3 seconds to get it

    *Quotes a line from greatest freakout ever 2 from youtube*


    "DUDE, FREAKIN' WOW!!!"

    Another one of these?
    Leave it on, take it off... it doesn't matter.
    The replacement Droids actually come with a blue tab on the plastic to remove it now, sooo....?
    Oh my god!
