    I did the bowl of rice trick with my last phone (touch pro) after it slipped out of my pocket and sat on the sidewalk in the rain for over 5 hours.

    Took the battery out, slid the phone to the open position and covered it all the way up with rice. Left it there for 24 hours and the sucker started right up.

    so the bag of rice trick really does work huh? hope this will never be required on any of my phones, but if it is, i would like to know that it will also resurrect my phone like it did for yours.

    Thanks for confirming the trick.

It still works for the USB connection, but will definitely need the case removed if placed on the dock.

    It's a nice looking case, and the feel is great in the hand, but it just doesn't snap closed on the bottom. Perhaps I got a defective case.
    my first one didn't snap properly and kept popping off. i got a replacement from the seller and it holds solid. i do have a very small gap on the top left corner, but its hardly noticeable.

    I try this one from
    PDair Silicone Case for HTC Google Nexus One (Pink) by PDair - PDair.com

    Silicon case will be more durable & anti-vibration
    Good protection to the phone when fell down on the floor

    Just got mine from ultra-case.com

    Took forever but like the case because the color is good, much more firm then gel and real tight fit.

    FYI Hard cases can scratch, had a iPhone case that took some work to get the scratches out.

    I'm not sure about either of the choices, silicon collects dusts easily, and crystal plastic cracks easily from previous experiences.



    I went for Alu, so far so good indeed.
