    I bought three Pre Phones. I wanted to put one touchstone charger in the family room so everyone can "top off" when needed.

    So, I thought it would be simple to buy one touchstone and three new backs.

    Sprint tells me the back is not sold as a separate item. I would have to buy three complete touchstone kits.

    IF this is true - I'm waiting... surely this will change once supply catches up? I'm not buying three complete touchstone kits at $80+

    It's still expensive, but if you are a S|P customer, you can get a 25% discount on accessories.

    Also, PreCentral's store has them for cheaper as well.

    I can't post links yet, but check out the shop section at palm.com.


    $19.99 for the Touchstone cover by itself.

    Do not fear my friend. A simple search of the PALM website will show you that you can indeed buy just the BACK alone (19.99).

    FYI, you are also going to need a micro USB cable for each of the touchstones.

    Also PreCentral should find a MicroUSB cable they could sell for $5 and put that up too.

    One review mentioned that the touchstone backs make the phone feel better. If I wanted to get just the back w/o the dock, is the phone still able to be charged with the charger that comes in the box, or would I have to switch the back to the original cover? I wasn't interested in the touchstone after reading about how hot the phone gets when in use.
    The value of knowledge is not in its possession, but in its use.

    Absolutely, With the port on the side of the phone..

    And I do like the touchstone back better!

    I'm curious, why do you like the Touchstone back better, what's different or improved about it? Thanks, Casey.

    Just not as slippery and has more grip for your hands. Also, not a fingerprint magnet.
