I just spoke to HTC and they indicated that it very certainly is a known issue that's currently being worked on. The indicated that the fix will be a pushed software update ate some point in the not too distant future. Again, I'd encourage any of you who have concerns about the sim card issue to call and/or write them to express your concern and displeasure. The more contact they have from us, the customer, the more pressure they'll put on their tech staff to resolve the problem. If you're interested, their number is (866) 449-8358.
