Default [Q] Galaxy S 4 Active USB port cover not seating properly?

I've had my Galaxy S 4 Active for about a month now and one thing that really concerns me is that the waterproof cover for the USB port is really difficult to insert after charging. It was ok for the first week or so but now I have to try several times before it looks like it's seated properly. I'm concerned that as this port gets opened and closed more than the others it's developed a faulty cover and won't be water/dust proof when I need it to be.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

As my cover became more worn, I had to close mine a particular way to get it to seal. I'll do my best to explain it. Grab the cover between your left forefinger and thumb. Bend the cover slightly and show the cover to the left, which forces the little tether to slide into the phone without buckling. Then you can snap the cover closed fully. At least, it works on mine. I used to be able to just pysh it closed when it was new.

Stock everything (for now).

Has anybody noticed this. If you take the little water resistant cap off of the USB port on the S4 Active and hold it really close to your ear, you can hear a tiny voice scream, "Unlock me!"

With my phone is the same. I cant close usb cover, left side is raised. At first 2 months cover was sitting perfectly flat in usb slot. I woud like to send it to Samsung but i need my phone, its my only phone. Im avoiding washing my phone under water, if im washing it than im protecting usb and washing only upper part of my phone. I should contact Samsung
