The 'flimsy little cover' does not snap down. It's more a 'holder'
(or whatever you call somehing like this). You should put the
microsd into the holder and then put it down (works just the same as
the sim card holder).

IMHO it would be nicer if it were possible to get at the SD card
without removing sim+battery. Preferably even without removing the
back cover.

For example my Sandisk Sansa mp3 player has just a little slot on
the side of it's case for the SD card.
