    Pictures please? Would like to see what it looks like.

    I have a matte skin on the back but would like to be aware should anything start to peel.

    A simpler way of not wiping the phone and trading in, is just ask for a new battery cover.

    Do people not get covers/cases for their phones?

    I do. I just don't like using them. I can't imagine how you could possibly handle an Epic 4G that could cause peeling though. I'd get it exchanged straight away.

    Its because a lot of people use these handsets like a laptop and not a phone. They are on them in one way or another 24/7 almost. They are not really made to be used like that.

    I would have to disagree with the above post. I dont think they would have made the phone as bad ass as it is if it was not ment to used 24/7 lol. But I too would like to see a picture.

    I always use a case in case I drop it. A case is no guarantee that it won't break but at least you have a fighting chance.

    Its a slip rubberized coating and it eventually rubbed off my epic at the bottom because I would prop out up against the wall.
