    The USB cover broke off along with a little plastic side piece. While I'm at it, I guess I should replace the screen since I have some scuffs on it.

    I have TEP but I don't want to give up my phone since it's solid otherwise. No oreo, no cracked screen, pixel fizzle etc.

    My question is, which part do I need to buy to replace the USB cover and plastic piece that was damaged in the surrounding area? (digitizer, LCD etc)

    I searched the threads but could not come up with anything for my specific situation.

    Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Ok, I now understand how people have had their USB cover break off. I got Pre #2 back in late June, a week after Pre #1 had it's camera burn out. Well, after major problems with switching to headset mode and it becoming worse and worse over the last two months I just received Pre #3.

    Pre #2's USB cover came out far, spun all the way around, was never even close to a problem. Pre #3's USB cover though doesn't come away from the phone nearly as far, doesn't spin one way or the other. I could see this thing breaking off.

    I never understood how people broke their USB cover off, now I think I get it.

    Welcome to the club. It is just a bad design. Many other cell phones have a rubber cover. MAybe HP will do that with the next model. Pre 1 broke. Pre2 and wife's Pre1 still have them.
    Sprint: 2-TouchPad 32g, Frank.-Pre-2, Pre-, MiFi & 1-LG Lotus with Xlink tied to home handsets. Backups: 650 & 700wx

    HP Please release the CDMA Pre3 phones!
    We want them!!!
