In all, I had five n900s at one time or another (I'm down to two). I never had a USB problem.

I had three, two out of three had USB problems. I did the entire (yet unnecessary on any other device I own) shave down the USB prongs, treated it with gentle respect, so forth.

Different strokes for different folks. I got the **** end of the stick it seems. I will not discount those that had no problems nor had problems whatsoever.

out of the 8 n900's I have owned...
5 of which I still own ...having given or sold the other 3...
Only 1 ever had the infamous usb port issue...
AND...
I bought it with the full knowledge....in advance...that it had that issue...
I wanted it as a parts device...in case I ever needed it.
It was cheap ...so it made sense.

I have never actually bought an n900 and "had" the problem occur.
I guess I lucked out.

Of course I learned from the mistake of others...
and I have put little stress on any of the ports on any of my n900s ...
other than to data transfer ...
rarely have I used it for charging...
I use an external universal for that.
Also I filed down all the hooks on the n900 cables I had ..to ensure zero stress to he internal of the port.

So...perhaps not just lucky...
