    I did a search but couldn't find anything. Has anyone modified the bottom corners of their OEM silcone case in order to fit in the desktop charging base? This way it could be charged without having to take the case off everytime. Any pics or descriptions would be appreciated, thanks!

    To make it fit you would have to remove the bottom half inch of the silicone ... this would defeat the usefulness of the silicone case

    It is easier just to slip off the silicone case

    by using the silicone sleeve, the phone is inevitably thicker than the desktop can originally cater for. cutting corners for the sleeve still won't allow the phone to fit in.

    suggestion, don't use the silicone sleeve at all.

    It takes 2 seconds to take the sleeve off. Am I missing something?

    I did this mod to my 8310 and it worked perfect. I cut 2 pencil eraser sized ovals out of the bottom corners and used a paper hole punch to create the holes for the rear charging contacts. Worked perfect. I'll do a similiar mod to the case for the Bold and post the pics here. You guys are a tough crowd!

    Can you PM me or email me pics of what your case looks like.

    I would really like to do this.

    Thanks,
