    It was fine at first but now the back cover on the phone feels loose for some reason. It squeaks whenever i press the screen on the phone due to the pressure applied. At first i thought it was the little rubber thing on the charger port cover gettin in the way of the cover but it's not. Its really annoying. Makes the phone sound really cheap and plasticky.

    Aaaarghh

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Mine sort of clicks and squeaks down the bottom on the back cover, keep meaning to get out the coloured covers and see if they do the same.

    Mind you I have a slight problem with a squeak on my big X10 in the bottom left corner too, the backs don't seem to fit that well do they?!

    Mine too squeaked since day 1.
    Just used a small piece of paper directly above the SD card.
    Now all is fine.
    I hate squeaks! :p

    Hey Blitzkri3g ! The whole left part of my X8 where the SD card is squeaks terribly . Could you be more specific with your solution ? (I'm Greek as well btw).

    Well you can try cutting a paper with an exact size of the inner back cover and lock the paper in it.

    LOL Nothing special! Just a folded piece of paper will do!
    Just fold it as many times as you want to make it fill the empty space!

    oh my, i thought i was the only one with the same problem! the squeak is really annoying!!!! isn't the back cover covered in the warranty?

    about the paper thing, is that safe? i mean, will it not burn if the phone or the battery gets too hot?

    I feel the squeaks on the back bottom since 3 days I bought, Once day I go to the public room with Air Conditioner so the temperature about 25 - 30C and the device doesn't squeaks, but the squeaks back again, if the battery feel hot.
