    Default Are you going to circumsize your DNA?

    Just curious if others are planning on cutting off the little cap, that protects the USB charging port, or just leaving it?

    Seeing as how I plan to get an inductive charging pad, I'll probably leave it, although, at the moment (just received my DNA) I'm having to deal with it.

    Thoughts?

    Dealing with it until I get my pad.

    With the pad, I will not need to open it unless in emergencies. Keeps the dust/dirt out, keeps me happy.

    I Have 2 lg charging pads that WERE collecting dust from back when i had the Tbolt and the Charge(was my wife's), Now i use them ever day....
    I don't mind the cover being there, it is nice to NOT See an open port exposed.
    So from a Design point i get it.

    I think your analogy is wrong. How about: Are you going to Pop your phones Cherry?"

    IMO HTC dropped the ball here once again. yet another design flaw. extraneous unnecessary hanging/moving parts are bad.

    Thank you for including IMO! Because IMO, I would rather deal with a little plug than get sand and lint in my charging hole!

    His analogy made a lot more sense.

    Anyway, I yanked it off before the phone was even activated. I've never had a USB door on a phone before.

    I have said this in two posts already. It is there for a reason. The phone is water resistant and the door makes it even more so. I read it in reviews as well as from verizon and htc rep.

    None of my phones since my Captivate have had a usb cover and I've never had an issue.
    If a manufacturer wants to add a cover to the usb port, it actually should be done like the captivate, a small sliding door
    Which I usually just left open lol

    I agree with some of the previous posts, I rarely use the usb port since I have the LG charging pad, so the cap will stay on.

    Funny, none of my previous cell phones have had any sort of cover....and I have never had any sort of problem because there wasn't

    I use the usb a lot (charging and adb), that little bit of plastic was a big pain in the ***. Was.

    You know I thought about this a lot myself.
    Im not one to spend $50 on a charging pad and if I previously
    Had one like most of these users do, than I probably wouldn't
    Have ripped that sucker off my phone.

    But after using the phone for a week or so now I can't stand the
    Damn thing.
    You pop it open and than its still in the way..you press it back down
    To close and it won't close all the way.. you push it back and in so that it finally fits and than it bends. Now you have a lovely light bend mark in the plug. FK it.. I ripped it out.

    Beyond that I use my usb a lot and I am sure a lot of you guys might end up after your memory space comes to an end. :P

    I don't regret it.. for I can now charge and use the usb with ease..
    BUT the bottom of the phone / the charging port now looks hidious

    Default BE AWARE!!

    I work at Verizon Wireless as a store rep. Just got the DNA on preorder. I've had it for 13 days and WITHOUT me actually trying, the charging port ripped in half. As I know how Verizon likes to screw people, I called in to report it tol avoid any future complications if I have a manufacturer warranty problem. Technical Support told me as of now it would be considered physical damage and void my Warranty unless it was a known issue. I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU WITH A DNA THAT DON'T HAVE A CHARGING PORT TO CALL IN SO IT CAN BECOME A "KNOWN ISSUE" THEREBY RESTORING YOUR WARRANTY...

    I had planned on keeping mine on HOWEVER last night it BROKE off! Normal wear and tear. The plug is cheaply built.

    those who have yanked it out. how is it anchored to the phone? does it look like I can take a pair of tweezers and remove the whole thing and be able to put it back? a reversible mod?
