    CASES: I have seen the Palm case in the Sprint store and while it seems nice, it really is just a storage pouch. Will there be any type of case that will protect and yet work with the slider functionality? I can't imagine how that would work and just wondered.

    I use the phone in open position a lot and almost exclusively for calls. I'd love to soften those edges as it does feel sharper than I would like. I'm just not sure if it's possible. I ordered the full body Zagg screen protector. I am still using that plastic cover from the store and the little pouch, which I like, but feel I do need some sort of stronger screen protection.

    Chargers: I see a wide variety of car chargers. Ranging from 15.00 - the Sprint store 31.00 one. Does it matter? I got the 31.00 one but have not used it yet. I've heard cheap chargers can sometimes cause problems with electronics. What did you all buy?

    Touchstone I will call Palm but just in case anyone here might know. Is the back for the touchstone safe if you have a Latex allergy? I looked at the box and asked in the store but nobody knew.

    Bluetooth I've never used a BT headset and would like to try one.
    Do they severely impact the phone's battery?

    Thanks

    I've tried two different aftermarket car chargers. One was one I had for my Treo 800w and another was one that the Besy Buy sales guy assured me would work... Neither one works. I need to go to the Sprint store and get the Palm charger.

    The one I already had was a walmart cheapie that I used for my 800w.

    The one Best Buy sold me was the Rocketfish one you mentioned. It doesn't work.

    I bought the Sprint one and it works just fine... I ordered the Palm one though and am waiting for that to come in before I return the Sprint one.

    I called customer support and I was thinking they might need a sample of DNA before answering my question ;-) Answer is we don't know. An engineer has to give me a call back.

    What is making you choose the Palm over the Sprint?

    I use iGo's adapters for my car charger. You can get them at your local radioshack. They are nice because the cable and the tip are interchangable. If you get a new device, you just get the new tip. The A97 tip works for the Pre.
