What you say brings me to question I have already for weeks:

When I plug-in the USB connector into the FR the black part of the USB
connector does not reach the cover of the FR, there is a small distance
of about 1.5mm, and one can move the connector a bit in the direction to
the suspend button or external antenna connector... is that normal?

I don't remember if that was already from the beginning, or not;
I think this is at least a weak point and could cause damage to the
electric part of the connector;
