Re: VZW GN pogo pins not charging / 4.0.4 changes / issue?
Hi. I did this a little differently - I bought a Palm Pre "touchstone" back cover and a Palm Pre touchstone charger (paid $8 for both) and then disassembled my GN. I soldered two wires to the + and - pins, then routed those wires through a small hole that was near the pins. I then bought an 'extended battery cover' ($6), stripped out the inductive parts from the Palm Pre cover, taped them on back of the extended battery cover, then connected the circuit board for the inductive receiver to the two wires. Using the 2100 mAH battery cover and the 1800 mAh battery allowed for just the right amount of space for all the stuff to fix inside; the cover snapped on nicely. Looking at the outside of my phone, you would never know it was changed. This has been a fantastic convenience to charge it daily.

Now it is taking over 10 seconds. You mentioned it was taking your phone 10-12 seconds. Are you by any chance on 4.0.4? And what is the TS mod?
Lastly, does anyone know if the upgrade changed anything associated with the dock? I find this long delay frustrating, as I must sometimes play with the phone to get the receiver and transmitter components to line up correctly. I would guess that anyone using the pins would also wonder if they are touching correctly as well...
