    My Rogers one has the same lose door. It's not a huge deal IMO. I only notice if i put pressure on the door and move my hand.

    I'm afraid it's indicative of the build quality found on current releases. You can go back to the vendor and examine inventory till you've found one you like, or install your after market cover with an insert (paper or tacky foam), added (if necessary), to correct the problem

    Question: Is the backing PLASTIC or METAL?

    Last spring when I ordered my pearl, I went through 3 of them before I settled on the one I have now. I also got a curve at the time and returned it for the pearl. All 4 phones had the loose battery cover. The pearl I have now had the tightest of the 4, but it was still loose. I used the Band-Aid remedy by cutting a a piece of fabric band-aid and applying it on the back of the door. It worked perfectly, and made the cover fit snug and tight. If my 8900 comes with the cover, I will try the electrical tape method I think I read about somewhere on pinstack.

    Don't know how the 8900 is built but I would say its the device. I'm on my 3rd Bold for the same reason. This one is rock solid, also where is your 8900 made? I would return it until you are happy with one. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It's really not that big an issue IMHO. Not like the door feels like it's ready to fall off.

    I've had my pearl over a year now and have a loose battery cover.
    I just went to my carrier and bought the rubber case, it fits nice and tight. I don't worry about the door any more.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    My battery door is loose and so is the keyboard- I can move the entire key set up and down with my thumb.

    "It's really not that big an issue IMHO. Not like the door feels like it's ready to fall off.

    I would say it is a big deal- this phone is Ł400 in the UK and whilst it is great at many things, the build quality is not great...

    My experience with the 8900 has been the complete opposite of yours. There is no "woobly-key" problem, no loose batter cover problem, and everything appears to be lined up, tight, and well constructed on my curve 8900. I am surprised by what an improvement in build quality there is over the three pearl 8120's and one curve 8320 that I have had experience with.

    I feel the 8900 is the phone my 8120/8320 was trying to be but was never quite there.

    This phone rocks and the build quality of my unit is solid and tight with no irregularities within it's build construction. (Its rare for me to experience this in the electronics world as a whole).

    If I had gotten a unit with loose keys along with a loose battery door, I would exchange it in a heartbeat. If the only issue was the loose door, I would try and solve it by using the electrical tape or band-aid method.
