    Not sure on the tab - but I tell you the way they positioned and labelled it was totally stupid. It appeared you were supposed to take it out -- and then once out you find that battery removal is very difficult.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    use scotch tape and super glue. as of right now, i dont think there are just the pull tabs available.

    Too late. Removing the pull tab voids the warranty. Sorry dude :(

    Yay for numbnuts at wal-mart. Something triggered me to check and I discovered that when the "salesperson" at wal-mart sold me my Droid X, she pulled the yellow tab out of the phone BEFORE putting the battery in. She pulled the whole tab and the sheet with the serial number and barcodes. She stuck it inside the box...

    I'm guessing total warranty void. I'm within 30 days so I'm going to pay a visit and try to get an exchange but I got the last one so perhaps I'll have to return it completely and wait in line for a replacement.

    When I see a tab labeled "Pull" in the battery compartment, I assume its to help remove the battery, especially when there is no battery in it. What logic would it be to put a pull tab to block contact between the phone and battery when the battery is not pre-installed anyway?

    take the battery out one last time the hard way and then put a strip of duct tape along the back of the battery.

    Ok, well, I just spent the last 30 minutes on the phone with a guy from Motorola and he said that removal of that label (with the tab attached) would indeed void the warranty.

    I'm off to Wal-Mart to try to swap the phone for another... If they don't have it in stock, I'll have to simply return it and void the contract and start over with another number. Man, there are some dumb people in the world.
