I never liked it anyway

A few weeks ago, I started having trouble with my previously awesome Kindle Touch with 3G. The touch screen suddenly became unresponsive. I’d tap a book and it wouldn’t open up, or would take a long time to open. I tried a hard reset, which helped briefly. A few times I tried to turn it on and it reset itself. The battery didn’t hold a charge. I figured it must be a bug in the device and got on the forums at Amazon to see if other users had experienced similar problems.
Several of them had and the suggestion was to take it out of the cover. Seriously?
As mentioned in the review, I purchased the official leather cover. It did the job, but I was disappointed with the color and feel of it. There is an indication the cover somehow interferes with the Kindle’s operation.
I popped the Kindle out and it immediately returned to normal. I didn’t call customer service, but sent the cover back to Amazon and received a full refund. I’d like to use it to buy a new cover, but I’m a little cautious of having problems again.
If you’re having trouble with your Kindle, try taking it out of the cover and see if helps. Also, I’m accepting suggestions for a new cover.
