I saw some other guys complaining about this cover falling of their iPAQs. Sorry I can’t refer you to this forum cause it’s in hebrew but I’ll send them here to comment.

It should be covered under warranty for a least a year.

I would assume it’s a warranty issue. Bring it back to where you bought it and see if they can help…otherwise, call HP.

Remember, you get more with honey than vinegar so be nice with the rep that you talk to on the phone. Keep us updated!! Good luck!

This is not a warranty issue, the cover will pop off if you snag it against something. That is not a maunfacturing defect, it is considered operator error. I consider it poor design, along with the protuding phone keys. (Who the heck would design an attenna cover with a couple of clips holding it on instead of screws?) I bought my replacement at
