    I just noticed that the metal charging contacts at the bottom corners are slowly turning a copper-ish color--is this normal? From my very minimal electronics knowledge, I think it is, but I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this on their Bold when using the OEM cradle.

    Thanks.

    No they were not always copper and yes mine too are slightly turning color... It's to be expected because of the way it's charging. Though If I rub them a bit, some of the copper wears off a bit.

    Wow, you know I never even noticed that. Mine are only a slight bit discolored, but if you know to look, its definitely noticeable.

    The contacts are pretty tiny why worry so much if they turn a copper colour. I bet only you will notice no one else

    You don't expect CHARGING CONTACTS to show signs of wear?
