Mogul Dropped!! Damn!!!

It is just me, but every time I drop the phone (accident of course) the F*@#$ back cover and battery scatter all over the place.

Does this happen to everyone? Does it supposed to do this? or is my Mogul supposed to have some sort of latch to hold the battery in place?
I know its an accident, but when this happens, I wanna F@#$ing throw it against the wall!!!

Sorry had to vent!

Later
TWIN

Re: Mogul Dropped!! Damn!!!

I dropped it again! But this time the battery didnt come flying out.
I rigged it a little with a piece of rubber band, tape, paper clips.... just joking!!

This is what I did.

Now the battery is pretty snug but I noticed at the very top left (near the connectors) is a small gap.

I used a small piece of foam that i cut out to size to fit in this gap. ( used my mouse-pad - I thought it was perfect foam)

I ended up squeezing my battery back in place, with the cutout foam in place and now it's even tighter.

Battery stood in place!!

I'm liking it now!!

Later,
TWIN

LOL...I wouldn't complain too much. You're dropping your phone repeatedly and it still works.

Re: Mogul Dropped!! Damn!!!

I'm not sure if rubberbanding it together is actually better. It might be less damaging to let it scatter which displaces the energy, kind of like the crumple zone in a car.

what about silicone case.

Yeah that happens a lot when you drop it hard. I dropped my 6700 in front of a lot of ppl and it was embarrsaing. My 6700 became detached from my head phone, The battery came out and the cover lost a tab. Never drop a heavy phone.
