    okay my driod is getting harder and harder to slide open. i noticed on the back of the phone when its slid open you can see a plastic film. the clear film began to bubble and i thought thats what was causing the slide to not open smoothly. i took off the plastic and its opening nicer. i think maybe if i clean and lube gentally the tracks it might work great again.

    anyone have that film problem?

    That film is on all the Droids. Some people leave it there and have no issues others remove it because thats what they are told to do by Verizon or they remove it for the same reason you did.

    Yep. After it gets hot a few times that film will bubble and bubble until it completely peels off. Mine is gone and the keyboard opens much nicer.

    This topic had been done to death a few months ago, but its interesting to see it back on top of the boards.

    A friend of mine just got a new droid (his launch droid's headphone jack got messed up). When verizon set the droid up for him, they took the little plastic thing off of the back of the slider thing. They told him it was supposed to come off.
