    loose battery cover

    Advertisement



    I just purchased a tmo.8120 and the battery cover is very loose. I upgraded from a 8100 and my wife has a curve. Both of those covers fit tight. I was wondering if this is normal for a 8120, and if anyone else has had an issue. Otherwise I like it much better than the 8100.

    My cover on the 8120 fits much tighter than the one on my 8100 did. I'd say yours might be defective....

    got that right, had an 8120 for a day and I can tell you that's one thing they DID fix was the door problem...8100 was atrocious
    Yes, I've been diagnosed with Phantom Vibration Disorder.....

    My wife has been complaining of a loose battery cover on her new T-Mobile 8120 ever since she bought it. She tried three phones from the same store and apparently all had the ever so slight loose fitting battery cover. Its disappointing!

    A temporary quick-fix is to take off cover, take a piece of black electrical tape about and inch long, place tape on battery and replace cover...it should fit a bit more snug till replacement comes.

    I agree, but I didn't want people to think I was joking when I made the sugguestion.(...duct tape seems to do that sometimes.) I had to do this on one of my older devices due to not being able to find a replacement cover after-market.

    Just got my 8120 today. First thing I noticed was the loose battery cover. I'm sending it back this week for either another 8120 or the curve. I haven't even bothered with it since I noticed the loose cover. I don't like stuff like that at all. Anyone else experiencing the loose battery cover on the pearl 8120?

    That's so weird. Surprisingly mine and my co-workers fit very snugly.
