    Hi all,
    I am using OEM flip cover on my Passport but the front cover does not perfectly fit - I mean, it does not stay lie down close on the screen and always open a small space.
    It prevents my LED light from shining.
    Does anyone have the same issue? Is there anyway I can do to fix it?

    Send it back.
    It should fit like a glove. and the cover stay closed.
    The light will not be seen, since the cover covers completely.

    All flip covers do this sadly. Haven't tried the passport though.

    Here is a video from CrackBerry on the case, and applying it.
    Is it sitting correctly after you attached it?
    Without seeing any photos (that's an idea!) perhaps it is not sitting square on as it should?

    I'm sorry I couldn't use said case for my Passport. I think it's terribly made...

    Thanks a lot for the video. After watching, I found that I am not the only one who has this problem.
    I tried use some weight to pressure the edge to improve this, a little improvement but not yet perfect. Yet still better than doing nothing.

    Thanks Geok, I got the warning from the shop about this cannot be returned or replaced because it is the natural thing of this flip.
    Only hope that it can be improved after using.

    I got my case a week ago and have used a leather conditioning cream on all sides, especially the bend, and it closes perfectly now.

    After installing the case, I suggest laying the device (in the case of course) between two heavy books at night. Surely, by day two, it would start to stay closed, no?

    Mine fits fine and closes perfectly, the led indicator can be seen through the little plastic 'window' as well, and just yesterday it saved my passport from being drowned by a pint of lager that my friend knocked all over the table, had the phone been naked it would of been all over.

    Don't worry, they are like that, it will take some time, until the leather is ''worked'' and then will lay perfectly over the phone. Mine took about 10 days!

    Yeah, it fits much better now. I guess at the beginning, the back of the flip is hard so it could not close perfectly. Now, it becomes softer and can close easily. I really like the flip now.

    Agreed. I tried to bend it myself so it took around 3 days.
