    Default Flexy, creaky back cover on the Incredible 4G: Flaw, or... Feature?

    I've enjoyed using the Incredible 4G the past few weeks. I did notice that the back cover would creak and flex quite a bit, more than any other phone I've had. It seems that this is simply due to some extra, empty space in that area. I have seen some remedy this issue with layers of tape or paper.

    But why not make it useful? I folded up a $20 bill and set it on top of the battery (almost exactly the same size), then replaced the back cover. My phone now feels solid, creaks very little, and I have 20 bucks with me whenever I need it!

    All of my HTC phones have done this, Evo, Evo 3D, and Rezound. I've learned to just live with it.

    I have a Droid Incredible 2 and it does this all the time! I got used to it, so it doesn't bother me anymore. Plus it doesn't help when I am not using a case.

    Painters tape. Problem solved. And you don't need to waste $20.

    Lol, thanks. But I think most of you missed the point that the $20 is a feature. There is no loss, just the convenience of having 20 bucks when you need it. To each his own!

    Touche' sir.... Nonetheless painters tape fixed my DINC2's creaky battery cover right up. And here I was super gluing and folding toilet paper strands and all kinds of other stuff to try and remedy it.
