    I've heard of people putting thin pcs of foam or double sided tape between the battery and the door. I've never had this problem though so I can't tell you if it works or not. I've seen this posted in other threads also, so you can try to do a search and see if you can find some better suggestions. Home that helps. Good luck!

    I had the same situation and put double side tape between the battery and the door. It reduced it very much. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I did this the very day I bought my 8700. It creaked and was overall just too loose.

    All I did was layer small pieces of black electrical tape on the back of the cover. I choose three spots that were in direct contact with the 8700 housing (not the battery).

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah the tape works great, but I also read of people taking the foam off of the battery door!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
