well i called htc and spoke to a live person and they said no problem that they actually repair not give you a refurbished phone as i originally feared. so when my charge port does fail i can send it in and i will get my phone back repaired. thought i would relate this to others. I will be using the original manufactures warranty that is good for 1 year from date of purchase. does anybody else experience a slightly loose charge port. if so can you post please. thank u.
