Definitely not that, the only time I ever remove my cover is to change
the card when I buy a new one, and I fully shutdown the phone first
before doing so. My USB port still works, so I don't need to remove
the battery on a regular basis.

checked call logs on my N900 and I have 6 calls since 1st of January.
