I at first thought my experience with this was the result of the AT&T store rep "forcing" the back cover open when she took it out of the box without initially realizing there is a release mechanism on the bottom of the phone. Thereby "loosening" the latch/hinge such that there is some "give" in the back cover. Now that I've read several reports that others are experiencing this as well, it simply could be a minor "flaw".
I initially mitigated this by following a suggestion from a BBForums community member to fold a piece of paper and place it between the battery and the back cover to create some extra tension to hold it in place better. I did do this with a business card folded in half. This seemed to work for the most part. I have since purchased and put the Bold in a skin and this seems to help for the most part. However, there are times, certainly not as frequently as I first experienced, that I will feel a slight "shift" when I begin to type on the keyboard.
Certainly not a deal breaker but a bit surprised that a $300 phone presents this to me within minutes of my purchase. I've gotten over it as the Bold is simply light-years beyond my 8700g and the Bold has not left my side since I purchased it on November 4th. VERY HAPPY with the purchase and look forward to at least another two years with it.
