    Seidio nightmare

    I have been using the seidio battery for a year now and it works fine.

    The nightmare has been the battery cover for the Q. It constantly falls off.

    Not only does the phone look silly with the big protrusion of the battery, but taping it makes me look super cool :dft003:cool

    Does anyone know a solution? Thanks.

    not really sure what to tell you other than

    1. maybe a member here is selling a 3200mah battery cheap with a cover
    2. look into ebay
    3. get a new 2100mah battery with a cover since your battery is a year old (this is when they start to go downhill anyways)
    4. perhaps there is something to rig on the existing cover to make it stay
    5. learn how to mold plastic and create a new cover

    Seidio is a joke, a 19 dollar piece of plastic

    I’m sorry to hear about the troubles that you’re having with your battery door. Your battery and door were purchased on 8/24/2008 and have a warranty of 180 days.

    Unfortunately you’re out of your warranty period and because of this our warranty department would not be able to send you a new battery door. You can however purchase a new battery door through our customer service department. The cost of the new door is $14.95 plus $3.95 for the shipping and handling.

    If you’d like to purchase this door please call our customer service department at 832-204-1118 and they’ll assist you with getting this taken care of.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    looks like you and me are it for this forum.

    yep they aren't discontinued as I was told when they were in warranty.

    now a 20 cent piece of plastic is going for 19 bucks shipped.

    pfft

    sounds like $19 will fix your problem! also...i've got a 3200 in my old Q and it fits perfect. not sure if there is a size difference but you sure you have the original q and not a q8?

    I am on my 2nd 3200 battery cover. the plastic notches that extend into the phone keep snapping off. so the cover comes off from the bottom

    if 19 fixed my problem for good, i'd do it, but it wont.

    I tried to put the phone into a case, but the battery is too big.

    oh well, in march I qualify for a free upgrade. probably pay the extra money and get an htc touch
