    I just noticed a tiny chip in the chrome plating in the slot for
    the sound mode switch that wasn't there before. This is not
    good... how could it have got scratched inside the solt?

    Now, that is the only thing I notice when I look at my Treo.
    The tilted (and offset) screen is now forgiven.

    Looks like the more careful you are and try to take care of
    something, this always happens.

    You worry way too much. I have battle scars all my Treo. It's meant to be like that. Sort of like an ol' baseball mitt. Needs to be worn in.

    lol, WHAT!?!?!, a tiny chip?!?! Call in the national guard!!

    First week I had my treo, i sent it skipping down the sidewalk at my job. Now it looks like it had a motorcycle accident. It still works fine tho. And it convinced me that the insurance wasnt such a rip off after all.

    This is called using your device, otherwise, you might as well put it in a case in a museum.

    OT a little bit. Greenhex, glad you put back funny pig there again. What made you decide?

    I'm a pig for gadgets and I'm smiling for having acquired a Treo...???

    Anycase, all you guys wanted it back right?

    I've come to the conclusion that every other mobilephone/ smartphone is a compromise...

    I am on my second Treo 600. I have a chip in the chrome on the right side of the screen-which is exactly where I had a chip on my first Treo. Creature of habit.

    My Treo has the same roadrash that TheBlaze74 mentions. Instead of a sidewalk it was a parking garage for mine. I figure it gives it character.

    Mine has also taken the tumbles and abuse that you guys mention. But, I have had a Body Glove case on since I bought it. So it doesn't show all the trauma.

    Yesterday, My Treo fell down from a height of around two feet
    (I managed to block its fall). The cover, battery and main unit
    flew out in different directions.

    My bodily functions ceased from that time on to the time I got it
    all back together and booted it up... and switched on the phone...
    AND EVERYTHING WORKED.

    After this, a careful scrutiny revealed that only the gap between
    the antenna and the case increased a wee bit, this was fixed by
    banging the antenna back in with a good whack on the table. No
    chips or cracks.

    Counterintutive it may seem but my Treo now works BETTER. The
    voice quality is better. (At least it is all no worse)

    TOUCHWOOD!

    I noticed the more I tried to becareful not to drop or bang it, the more I did. Now I can care less, and nothing. Just the first scratch from the first time I dropped it, on the cement, battery cover scatch.
