    HTC has 3 options for repair/replacement:

    1.>> $29 fee which covers shipping where they send you a new phone and put a $599 hold on your credit card until they get your phone back and evaluate it. If there isn't any damage besides the screen they give you your money back. If there is any other damage they deduct it from your $599. They do say if you modified the phone (rooted it) you will get charged.

    2.>> Priority- $19 fee which promises to get your phone back to you in 5 business days.

    3.>> Free repair which takes 7 to 10 business days.

    To all who posted in this thread prior to 4/10/14:

    Due to the rapid growth of this forum, this thread's previous intent as a catch-all for M8 questions & issues was no longer viable. We were getting too many varying topics housed in one thread and it was becoming difficult to follow. Therefore, the decision was made to split out the individual topics to their own threads. We realize that can make it a little tricky to find your posts if you were part of this group, but we felt strongly it was the best option for everyone as new members pour in with some of the same questions and many new ones as well.

    If you are having trouble finding your posts and associated conversations previously posted in this thread, you can always find your post from within the side bar in the main M8 forum. Just click on the "All Your Posts" under the "Favorite Forums" header.

    If there are any other issues or concerns as a result of this action, or you'd like help finding your posts/thread, please feel free to contact the mod staff as well:

    Thanks for your understanding.

    I could not find car mode or a way to enable it.To make a long story short,the car app showed up under settings/all apps but not in my app drawer.I tried searching for it as well under app drawer with no results.I believe AT&T has disabled this feature but it can be fixed.I used Desktop Visualizer App from the market to locate and add the shortcut to one of my panels,Voila,It now works!I hope this help some AT&T users that are wanting to use this Car Mode on the HTC One M8 :)

    Thanks for the info. It should also be automatically enabled when you plug it into an HTC approved car dock.

    There are apps out there that do this, and if you switch it to car mode it will also activate the hands-free answer function.

    The head phones that came with the phone let you answer calls and skip songs. I like to go for walks all the time and I use them because of this.
