Mine has just enough play to be a little annoying at times. However, most of the time I don't even notice.

Used a thin piece of plastic film from a CD slip cover cut to fit to stop it from moving. Just enough to get friction but not too much to stress the plastic clips or bulge the cover. Too bad- that would have been easy to fix during design & testing of the thing.

Yes, but then you wouldn't get the chance to play MacGuyver

Mine has a slight amount of play as well. Not as bad as any of the 7100s I've seen.. The 8700 and 7100 have a similar battery cover style.

The 8700c covers are tight. So tight they are a pain to remove.

Reminds me of a Maddona song..."Like a V...gin"

Wirelessly posted (7280: BlackBerry7280/4.0.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 UP.Link/5.1.2.9)

I wonder how many broads we have on this board and if we're loosing them as we continue this thread.

I guess we could have blamed it on how large or small the battery was

It's not the size of the battery that matters, but how long it lasts.

Mine is tight, not "Like a V..gin" as my 7290 was, but good which is good. My 7290 I felt like a it was going to break every time I tried to get it off...
