Will Defy still be water-proof without the usb cover?

2011-03-14, 7:48 AM

Hi, I had my defy for 2 and half month, charges almost every night(so open the usb cover almost every night, too).

And now the usb cover is loosing badly, it's so easy to open it

I searched this and found out that this is a common issue,

but I'm wondering if the phone will remain water-proof with this condition?

I found a defy tear down post in a China forum, in the post he mentioned:   (see also the attach pic below)

    Defy's usb connector is an isolated unit which is produced with a water-proof process,

    so it is actually no problem with the cover opened in water.

    The cover is just to prevent a short circuit when expose to water.

But I also noticed that, when pressing the back of the phone (the middle of the battery cap) when in a call,

the earpiece will fail, then open the usb cover, the sound is back.

That may suggest that air can go through the usb to the phone's interior......??

So now I'm totally confused.

Will Defy still be water-proof without the usb cover?

And, did anyone here tested your defy underwater with the cover opened?  (I know this takes great courage...)

I think if I go to replace the usb cover, it will defintely loose again soon.

If the usb itself is water-proof like the China forum post said, then it's ok

But if it is not, I think MOTO will have to fix this by making new tight covers, and let us replace it.

Thanks.    Bruce
