    Oh gawd! I think I have done it now. I am totally freaking out! I always button my pocket shirt, I mean always! I am almost in tears. Why HTC, WHY!!!!! HOW COULD YOU MAKE A PHONE LIKE THIS!!!?

    OK, I need to calm down. Well, I guess I should start at the beginning. Oh, by the way, thanks for the help from my other post. Some of you smarter people might understand this, the rest you can just ignore this post...

    Last Friday I received my 11th Hero in the mail. (#10 had to go back; it kept crashing on my Fox News app.) First thing, I carefully take it out of the box and grabbed my BOREALIS 1050 LUMENS flashlight and my X20 magnifying glass. I inspected every pixel and scanned every mm on the screen of my new Hero (which I absolutely LOVE!). To my surprise, the screen was 100% clean. I have not been so happy since I received my stimulus check in the mail.

    Well, I will cut to the chase; I only have an hour lunch break and my slave driving boss has a stopwatch. Two days after receiving an almost flawless Hero, I went up to the bathroom upstairs and put the phone in my top shirt pocket and fastened the button close.

    Anyway, after

    Return it and get another phone that you can complain about. The guy above said shit happens, not 11 times. I think this is fake and your looking for attention or you work for apple.

    Reminds me of the forum joker who said he accidentally got his cousin preggers by "contaminating" a couple of her tampons, as a joke, non-the-less :)

    This thread is so epic, it knocked Chuck Norris out.

    Therefore you deserve a facepalm:


    I would return that phone if I were you...unless you feel like whispering sweet nothings to your turd everyday.

    if i was sprint i would have dropped you already, 11 phones????? you look for something wrong with everything. you check all pixels for what,,,"ohh noo that 1 out of thousands is dead, time to take back" and the fox app which force closes, this could be any number of things like your appkiller killing a vital process or even an error of the servers side. I hope that sprint and htc tell you to f*** off and stop complaining because our first 10 phones were perfect, and you drop another perfect phone into s***water and expect that to be our problem!!!!!!!

    If it were your first exchange, I would suggest playing dumb and taking it back to the Sprint store. Since this is your 11th return though, I'm sure it may be a little rough trying to return it.

    Have you tried calling Sprint Tech Service? I thought I read somewhere that if you ask politely for a Supervisor and explain your situation, they'll give you your MSL number.

    Once you've obtained that, you can edit the phone's innerworkings. If I'm not mistaken, and it's been awhile since I've tinkered around in the programming side of the phone, there is a setting that allows for the Changing of your Slot Cycle. This has been rumored to help with ringer lag. However, since ringer lag is not your problem, you have to take the electrical tape off of your trackball (assuming you still have the electrical tape on this phone as you did with phone #5) and use it to scroll on down to the "Remove Fecal Matter" setting. Within that setting, the menu will give options as to where you'd like to remove the fecal matter from. You obviously want to choose "From Under Screen". Select that and power the phone down. As you power up, hold Volume Down, Home and simultaneously plug in a pair of headphones. Hold all of these down until the Android character pokes his head out. If he walks out from beyond the "HERO" insignia and takes a poop and then throws it at the screen, you've removed all your fecal matter from the screen. Should this not have worked, no fear. Power down the phone again, and instead of holding the buttons down as before, power the phone on, and perform the NES "Contra Code" (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, b, a, select, start) using the hard buttons on the phone (green button is "select" red is "start"). This will perform a "clean wipe" on your phone, removing any fecal matter from any region of the phone.

    From here, you should be all set. If you want to confirm you are fecal-free, use any high powered microscope (I prefer this guy:Highpower Microscopes) and any standard flashlight.

    Hopefully that'll solve your issue and save you another deductible.

    P.S. how many more people do you think will come on here and flame the OP for too many phones?

    P.P.S. OP, you have been rep'd for making me laugh VERY hard.
