Or people were trying to jam their cable end into the port the wrong way. I can easily see that happening. People come to this forum looking for a sob story. I have had my EVO since day 1 and its in Afghanistan with me. What am I doing right of which everyone else is doing wrong with their EVO?
You are making a HUGE assumption on the part of a lot of other people.
I'd advise you to keep quiet unless you have PROOF that they abused their phones.
It is not unheard of to have manufacturing defects
Just because you may have gotten a phone that had good quality assurance, does not guarantee that others did. So why be so quick to condemn other people when you have no idea of how they treat their phones? Several people here have stated they baby their phones, I have no reason to doubt them because it's highly unlikely these people are all in some sort of conspiracy to defraud Sprint / HTC or fool us.
PS are you in the military or a contractor in Afghanistan? If you're in the armed forces, thanks for your service.
