    Default Charging Port Cover Broke Off...YAY!!!!!...

    ...I was too big a wimp to take it off myself. Well, the phone seemed to be only too happy to accomodate me and this morning, bye bye. Got in there with a needle nosed pliars and yanked out the remaining plastic. Now I'm free. God, did I hate that damn thing.

    To those of you considering getting rid of it....go for it. It's nowhere near as traumatic as you may fear.

    Good riddance.

    I was too scared, plus wireless charging is sooooo cool. I'll never plug in again.

    Did it hurt?

    Sounds painful.

    So, tonight I go to bed, my phone is dead and the room is dark. I got to plug it in and struggle to take the battery cover open. I just clipped my nails and figure I'm not able to get my finger underneath it to open when it pops completely off. I'm a little surprised, but figure oh well. I try to plug it in and and doesn't want to go, regardless of plug orientation. Hmm...I reach to the other end to discover that I popped the power button off!

    Fortunately it popped back in and all is now good.

    Whoa.. The power button!! Man, you must have really dug in there to get it to pop off. Good save though!! Hope it keeps working. I actually prefer the the cover on, due to the crap that could get in there. When I had the gs3, It seemed to collect lint and stuff, while in the pocket. Having wireless charging certainly plays a huge part in the battery cover not bothering me anymore.

    A little novocaine and, VOILA, my phone is now sans annoying charging port cover.

    Great for that quick charge in the car, etc.

    I almost snorted Coffee through my nose reading this. Glad you were able to get the power button back on!
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    Mine actually saved my phone the other day. The phone got put in a glass of water and thanks to my case and that cover nothing shorted or got wet and I was able to dry it off quickly.

    I like the design in theory, but it's just cheaply made. It would have been better if it was made out of rubber or something--I had the same feature on my previous phone and after 2 years of usage it still worked great. Because it's just made of thin metal, mine bent out of shape and can't really offer much water protection. Too chicken to pull it off yet, but I'm sure it'll fall off soon :P

    I dont have a problem with it. Works out when you just do wireless charging.
