    I realized yesterday that I'm killing my battery life by having my Droid sliding open while in my pocket. I never really paid attention to it, the sliding open never really bothered me, until I realized that basically my phone was sliding open, coming on, then closing, then opening again. Does anyone use a case that keeps it from opening?

    Where you wanna be!
    I keep my phone in my pocket all day long as well and I never really have noticed the problem until about two weeks ago I was at work and my phone got super warm in my pocket and I realized it was from all the opening and closing it was doing as I was rushing around! Needless to say I took it out and left it sit for a while to cool it down and the next time I went into work I took a case I had laying around that happened to fit the droid perfectly and have never had a single problem with heat or battery life since. I used to go 8 hours at work and the phone battery would drop 60-70% with hardly any use but a few text messages 0.o but since I've been using the case I am lucky to drop 10-20% even with using it the whole time I am there.

    I just use this case, not leather but same size and style of case - http://www.fonegear.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=646

    Look around on this forum for the various Droid case threads.

    I use a "G1" case that I bought off eBay for $3.95 that works perfectly for the Droid. It fits even if you have a Seido Innocase on the phone. I believe the seller is "oemplanet."

    There are many other slipcases that work as well.

    Haha as ghetto as it sounds a rubber band would do the trick. That is if you aren't into that whole "spending money" thing people are into these days lol.
