    I saw few passports on ebay where the back was ripped open on the device, see below for pictures.

    My question is, does this effect any functionality or other issues with the hardware or software. This is more geared to someone that has the same issue on their phone already.Because I was just thinking of slapping a case on the device, and forgetting about it.

    That is about the height where the keyboard attaches to rest of the device, so I'd have to wonder if it has not been severly bent, expecting similar damage to the KB fastenings (EDIT: two screws, I believe).

    Hard to say, looks like they tried to open the back of the phone.

    How does that happen?
    Also I'd assume it doesn't matter for functionality...

    Maybe some thinking it had a removable battery.

    I was thinking the same. Looks like it started from the speaker slot. If that is indeed the case, I doubt it will effect the performance of the phone.

    Well its a AT&T Passport which has wireless charging and also the NFC, May or may not be an issue.
