View Full Version : battery door question

Hi All!

First time posting here and new owner of the pearl.


Anyways, just had a quick question. My pearl has a very loose battery door, it shakes from side to side and up & down. I'm sure its not really a big deal, but it drives me crazy. So today at work I took the door off and put 4 very small pieces of tape on the cover and placed it back on. It seemed to work. No more shakey door. Just wondering, will the tape cause any problems with the battery. I mean if the battery is hot from using the phone and the tape is on it??


And I look forward to bugging you all more! LOL

There is also the suggestion of placing a business card (cut in half) over the battery to give it a more snug fit.

Welcome to the forums.

Hmm...just tried that..the tape seemed a little more snug.

Is the tape okay or not?

Any other fixes?

Shouldn't be a problem I had tape in my storm and other devices, and it's been ok. So long as you're not cluttering up contacts and such, it should be fine.

If it becomes too bothersome, I'm sure you could get a new battery from the CrackBerry.com store. I can't see a battery door being too expensive.

Was it duct tape?

Just regular tape (the kind you would wrap presents with.)
