    Alright, I keep looking at this stupid thing, so I thought I would ask...

    What is behind the little rubber insert just below the kickstand on the TB? I would consider digging it out, but I'm a coward and knowing my luck I'm afraid I would release pent up phone demons or something. :rolleyes:

    Has anyone looked behind this rubber plug? Other than filling a hole in the back of the phone, what was this hole/area designed for???

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Yup. Do you know that it is the 4G antenna? I Thought it was the 3G/CDMA one, but then again I have not looked into the matter.

    Don't mess with that plug. It keeps the awesomeness inside the phone.

    ^ nice find. i wonder if that port is something that was just there for testing or if they plan to offer a hardware add-on that could improve 4g reception when in a bad signal area...
