    Today I noticed a crack In the glass extending from the left side of the optical track button to just under the home key. Phone was never dropped and always kept in the bodyglove case! This sucks! Have no idea how I got there and verizon wants me to file a claim and won't warranty it ! $90 that sucks! It appears to be a stress crack from where the hole is in the glass to allow the optical button to be Installed. Anyway anyone else experience a crack like this ?

    Man that sucks. No cracks so far on my phone. (knock on wood) Did you get the insurance on it? Asurion should cover a replacement, but they'll charge you a deductible.

    Sorry to hear about that crack.

    I guess I'm a lucky ones seeing as how I've had mine slip off my lap on the train and the only thing that happened was the case popping off. Then again, I'm carrying a $600 pocket computer around with me all day so I do tend to be careful.

    I've had to fight the urge to throw the phone against the wall the past few days -- wife gets me that upset sometimes.

    Maybe check one of the posts that refer to a site that offers glass replacements for like $50? It's cheaper than $90...
