Don't take it personally Fortierj, some people are just into the stop complaining game, and stop it's only a phone! As per your question, yeah it's a some what common thing on the Curve right now with the rubber sides by the volume key! Some people got play, and some don't! You can solve it with the one you have by taking a tiny piece of paper and folding it in two, and inserting it right into the rubber where it's loose! Or just return it, what ever floats your boat! But just so you know, your not alone in noticing these things!
