    Picked up my pre this morning.. 3rd in line at a small store and was out in about an hour..

    one thing I noticed is that prying off the micro usb cover was not easy at all.. I felt like at any moment the tiny plastic wire would snap right off.

    I guess it will get easier to pull on off with some repetition.. I hope.
    \ would hate to have to think about repairing the gizmo.

    My old Samsung A940 had a flimsy plastic charger port cover that I perpetually believed was about to snap off. Surprisingly, it never did.

    I have a similar USB rubber cover on a 4 yo dumbphone...no problems at all.

    All A900, A920 and A940 had those. Remember A900's cover falling off or breaking all the time? Mine actually broke and my lil bro went into CompUSA a looong time ago and jacked me a replacement. Good as new

    But OP is correct, it will get better over time as the cover will get broken in.

    Yeah so far only problem is the cover... Pretty annoying, I didn't want to break it, but I eventually got it off. Maybe this is Palm's plan to make us buy the Touchstone??

    I liked the A920 cover because you could pull it out far enough not to jar the connection at all. I still have my A920 in a drawer and the cover is still intact. This cover on the Pre doesn't go far enough to not be wedged between the Pre and microUSB plug.

    agree'd .. the only few gripes I have about the touchstone..

    1) the cover is hard as hell to get off.. hopefully webos won't require reboots (battery out)
    2) there was no usb cable.. seriously.. for $70 I would think you could bundle that

    I'd end up ripping off the usb cover if I had to use it as the only way to charge the phone.

    The cover is going to come off over time. I can't get mine flush with the body after opening it the first time.

    lol...I was being careful when opening mine. It felt like it was gonna break off.

    I'm really glad I got the Touchstone, though I wish the USB door felt a bit sturdier, since we'll be doing all those data transfers (in my case, mp3s & videos).

    It was tough to get off! I didn't want to pull too hard. Then I stopped acting like an ***** and just forced the damn thing off. It did not come clean off, though.

    Funny, I felt like ripping mine off. I hate that thing, but it really does make the phone look clean. Thank God for Touchstone and Wifi!!
