    Thank you for taking the time to contact HTC America Technical So I emailed HTC about the light leakage and this is what the wrote back:

    I guess we all need to take 30 secs and email them about the issue we are having.

    Not sure what the point is. Most aren't having that issue.

    I'd wager that, yeah, most are having the issue to some degree. It's a manufacturing and/or design flaw. I'm confident my replacement will not have this defect (crosses fingers).

    If HTC won't solve the problem, I'll have some of my techs fix it properly. I like the phone too much to let this annoying issue ruin the experience.

    Luckily, my BB rep. is pretty cool. She said a new shipment is (probably) due in this Wed. or Friday and put me down for one. They expect 30-40 units. Worst case, if they don't show up for a few weeks, they will extend my 30 day trail period until I get a phone I'm happy with. I showed her the display and she immediately noticed the LED light bleeding onto the display.

    Ah cool, I have to go back the second BB I went and talk to the guy that did my replacement and see if he can put my name in a list.

    Email sent.....

    They shouldn't even have to wait to get all of these complaints. They just need to use an EVO for a few days to see it for themselves......

    Yep thats it, and it will get brighter lol

    Email and call if you can. Look at the number on the poll 42 with this issue and this thread is less than a day old. HTC needs to do something now.

    I emailed them. My EVO has gotten progressively worse with the light leakage and the screen is noticeably sticking out above the bezel.

    My wife's EVO doesn't appear to be having the same problem (knock on wood) and this is the only problem I'm having with my EVO.

    I want to wait until they get new phones in using the updated/fixed manufacturing process to get a replacement. I hope Sprint won't give me a hassle replacing it as I really love this phone.

    I do think that HTC/Sprint will extend the 30 days if they take long on a resolution.

    I would think this issue would be covered under the year warranty from HTC.

    Can someone take a pic of what this supposed "light leakage" is/looks like?

    I can't tell if I have it or not. I maybe see the LEDs under the black border at the bottom, but not really leakage and certainly not when the phone is asleep.
