Arrow Battery cover

Please Login to Remove!

Is it just me or does the battery cover feel really cheap and plastic and it slides back and forth even though it is in and snapped into place

it does.... but I dont find this to be an annoyance...

there are some other things that bothers me more than the flimsy back cover... the right shortcut button (camera button) its hard to press on my device.. I fear it will become unuseable.....
The keyboard marks on the screen protector I put inside... (good thing to have the protector, but i fear for screen if I took it off)
Why do I have to keep the sample songs and video... I want to delete them but they cant be erased...

Anyway... I still love this phone... best I ever had.. and I always make the best out of my electronics so Im making this my primary mp3 player... leaving my Archos only as my video player and secondary mp3 player....
With Opera mini the browser experience its really good.. kinda slow at first to load page but navigating its great...

The battery cover was always a complaint of Pearls. Sounds like the issue transferred over to these as well.

Mine feels tight and sturdy. This is also the best battery latch design I have ever experienced on a BlackBerry. Secure, yet user-freindly.

Default Mine is loose too

Just got a 8220, and the battery cover also rattles around a bit. Much worse than it was on my 8120. It's like it's a bit too short

I agree. If I didn't have a hard case over the front and back I would be afraid of it popping off if I hit or dropped it just right.

Well I orderd a new non-branded battery cover and I must say it is better then the tmobile cover, the edges are more rounded so they dont catch on my fingers when I wrap them around it to hold the phone, the battery cover barley even moves now and I think it looks better so I would suggest that anyone who wants a better cover or just a non branded cover to check out cnn.cn and get it!

I'm regretting now having a screen protector now. I hate them, I'm a bit OCDish about them and the bubbles they end up with if not put on right....

The marks that you are getting on your protector are now permanately on my actual screen.

I have the original cover from RIM (not a branded T mobile one) and my cover is tight and the latch feels very secure. Dave
