Default Message: check battery cover for protection against water damage ..."

I get the check battery cover message every time phone turn on or reboots. Do you guys it too? I'm thinking it should only appear if the back door is open or loosely shut.

That's likely a feature - to make sure your phone is in the best possible protected mode in the event of exposure to water.

It should be the same for everyone. It is a reminder because Samsung is assuming when you restart or power on the device, that you may have removed the cover to access the battery or sd card.
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.


Current Phones: Note 3, S4, AT&T S5, TMO S5, & LG G2 . Yes, I'm a phone junkie because I switch between all of my phones and never let them totally die.

Phones sitting on standby in a drawer: iCrap5, iCrap4, Note 1, SGS2, HTC Vivid, Note 2, S3, LG G Pro

All those stupid messages are why I like to root my phones.
Xposed mods can help you get rid of most of the annoying messages.

Yea totally agree with rooting. Up to this point I used to be on a Galaxy SII Skyrocket, with CM10.2 stable version. And honestly life was so good with CM and ADB. I'm gonna wait a little longer for a root solution, I still don't know how this S5 will behave in response to flashing those. (The yellow triangle voids the warranty, and triangleaway might not work on S5) So I'm staying away from that mess yet.
If there is a problem, then there is a solution.

Unless you really piss someone off at AT&T, then they (in the past anyway) usually don't care if you rooted your phone. As long as it's a verified "mechanical" issue and not a software problem, then I've never heard of anyone being denied warranty claims.
Take that with a grain of salt though. It's certainly not "set in stone" and is subject to change with the wind.

EDIT:
There was one developer awhile back who was a bit of an ass. He hard bricked his phone and tried to get it warrantied and he was denied when Samsung said it was his software that caused a CPU issue. I think they "knew" him though.

You know, if you have a case on ur phone I don't see how your back cover could be loose.
