    Palm Pixi Plus back cover peeling - Solution ?

    The back cover is peeling on my Palm Pixi Plus for the 2nd time in 6 months (Palm sent a replacement under warranty ). I looked around on the web and saw that the Touchstone covers eventual have the peeling problem too . (For more details - Search the web for Palm Pixi peeling cover , see- http://forums.hpwebos.com/t5/webOS-H...ght/true#M8275 ) .

    What is the solution to this problem ?
    (buy a rubberized hard case on ebay or what ?) - Thanks

    I brought one of these:

    http://www.amazon.com/CrazyOnDigital...6485547&sr=8-1

    and use the cover to protect the back.
    Use the belt clip to carry.
    Use the screen guard to protect the screen.
    Use an eyeglasses screwdriver to open the microUSB port to cahrge instead of using a touchstone.

    I will try a new cover (the 3rd) and rubberized hard case (another$10-15) and see what happens

    I am also shopping for a replacement phone

    The problem is that the back battery cover is a "snap-on" type, and eventually, it will stretch out. Manufacturers can not make it rigid. I believe their intent was to make it cheap, and last 2 years, but those kind of plans never work out correctly...

    I have seen a few TPU cases on ebay. I think if you can put these on top of the original batter cover, you can prolong the usefulness of the phone.. Back battery cover does not have a real functionality.. As of now, I am just buying extra touchstone covers. MY pixi is about 7 months old, and kept mostly indoors, and back cover does not have an issue, as of yet...
