    I am curious how much off the new charging port placement is? Did it move up or down the phone?

    Looking at my Tour/Innocase, there is plenty of room below the port, but not as much above it.

    I am more than happy with my Tour but would consider upgrading when my NE2 comes due in a little over a year.

    Thanks.........

    I actually have..and it seems to be the same. The charging port on the case has a lot of room below, but hardly any above the port. Kinda annoying if you ask me

    Yes, I put a 9630 innocase onto my 9650 and it fit perfectly, other than the fact that the charging port is a litlle off. Not too much off that the micro usb can't fit, just a little off. Doesn't bother me nor the device one bit.

    Excellent. Thanks for the replies. Makes it easier for me to think about an upgrade when my NE2 is due since I won't have to replace all of my accessories (such as the case, charging pod, etc). Perhaps I might get an early offer at the one year point.

    I do like my Tour, though, so I am in no rush.

    You might want to wait b/c The keyboard cover for the 9630 is for a trackball & not for a track pad so it probably won't work correctly. I'm using a 9630 Case Mate Hard case for now until the Innocase 360 for 9650 is out.

    Since I didnt want to spend another $30 or so, I went ahead and modified my 9630 Seidio Innocase II since I got a Bold 9650 as a replacement. As we all know, the Bold 9650's charging port was moved up and the 9630 covers it a little where the USB cable goes half way in and does fully go in but still charges.

    Gap between charging cable and phone (no case)


    Modified case


    USB cable and case


    Gap is about the same and charger full stays in. I used a multi-purpose snap-off blade cutter. I took the blade clutter and put it in the fire to heat it up. Since the case is made of plastic, the knife will cut through it like butter.
