    I've noticed that the actual camera lens has cracked. This may have happened when I dropped it.

    Does anyone know where I can find the replacement lens? HTC won't quote without me sending the phone.

    Please note this is not plastic lends inside the back cover.

    thanks

    ive never seen that part anywhere. A broken Desire sold as "parts only" perhaps?

    Yes I know very unfortunate. I only realised when taking pictures indoors and the light source would distort the image.

    Thanks for the tip I'll look into that.

    Are you sure it's the actual lens and not just the clear cover? The lens is quite tough.
    If it's just the cover then remove it. I took mine off ages ago because it was all scratched and haven't noticed any adverse effects... if anything my pics are clearer since doing it.

    Oops I didn't see that bit. :)

    Isn't the lens and chip all part of the same unit? That would require some serious soldering skills to change.
