But it’s come off twice so far just in the course of wearing it in the official Verizon belt holder. Fortunately both times I was in my house. so I could find the cover. Next time it’ll be a small disaster. So, I’ve now taped it on, which is not exactly the mark of a quality piece of equipment.”
Yup. I have the problem too, and like you I was lucky when the battery cover fell off. I was on an a Virgin America flight from Boston to San Francisco. Taking pictures of the Rockies 35K feet when the cover fell off. It fell between the armrest and the window. I took off my seatbelt and reached down as far as I could and luckily felt the cover on the floor and picked it up. I haven’t taped it in place yet. It’s going to be a problem for sure. Wonder what Motorola et al plan to do about it?
Update: There’s a thread on this topic on the Motorola support forum.
