Don't try to bend your stylus

You know the trick where you bend your stylus so that it is curved. I did that trick on the Mogul so the Stylus wouldn't fall out. I've been seeing my stylus hanging loose on the TP when I take the phone out of the case. I got scared that it might fall out, so I tried to bend it on the bleachers during halftime while I was at the Texas Tech game this past weekend. The thing just snapped in half instantly. It doesn't give like the Mogul's stylus.

So learn from my mistake.

Re: Don't try to bend your stylus

HAHA! Good thing you told me. I did that on my 6700, mogul, and Touch. But the Touch would not give.. that thing was made of iron!

Re: Don't try to bend your stylus

I went the Mogul to TP route and noticed the same issue with the stylus. Thanks 1999TL for the warning.

My TP stylus kept popping out halfway as I pulled the device out of the case -- I abandoned using the OEM case and just keep the TP in my shirt pocket until I find a better stylus. For now, I use my pen with the tip retracted.

Re: Don't try to bend your stylus

I usually use my pen anyways. Been using this thing since my Ipaq days. Price has gone up every yr too. But hell, I buy them in bulk online(pack of 10).

Re: Don't try to bend your stylus

Wrap it close to the top with a layer or two of scotch tape. That trick dates back to the old Apache days and kept me from losing my last stylus.

Re: Don't try to bend your stylus

That worked on the Mogul because the Mogul's stylus held simply by pressure. This one's magnetic and sits loosely. Bending it would have no advantage, so a waste of time.
