    Is the door tab important? I've used Palms for years with exposed power ports -- my Moto GSM phone has one (mini USB) exposed too, as does my Kindle (micro). Is it horrible if the port stays uncovered? Is anyone selling a replacement yet?
    Mine broke off about 2 weeks ago (I've had it since June 6). I put it somewhere so I wouldn't lose it, and promptely forgot where.

    If anyone has problems with junk getting in the slot, it'll be me... Good thing I've got TEP

    I'll probably pull the door off.

    I'm curious: those of you without long fingernails, how do you get that cover off?
    Slide the keyboard open before prying the cover out.

    Mine broke off after 6 weeks and formed a little crack in the shell. I warned the wife to just cut the USB door off but she didn't and a few weeks later hers broke and took a huge chunk of plastic with it. No surprise here, but the Sprint store considers this to be normal wear and tear and should be expected on a 4month old device.

    Palm should redesign the door so that it is springloaded and goes inward when pushed by the micro-usb plug, and closes when you pull it out. The same way a cassette deck door is designed. It doesn't even have to be hard plastic, it could be a rubber flap, and that would alleviate the need for a spring.
