    So yesterday I realized that the "htc" logo on my dinc is coming off. First I noticed that the upper portion of the h had fully separated from the rest of the letter. Then I saw today that the lower portion of the h is curling up and is comin unglued. I treat it fairly gently so I think its having something to do with heat from the battery. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Mine is not, but when I first got the phone one of my first thoughts was that those pretty silver letters wouldn't last long with normal use.

    i don't lol

    but my thoughts are.....how do i get mine to come off sooner??? It'd probably look better!

    First thing I do when I get a car is take all the badging off!

    You can probably remove the back cover and use a blow dryer to slightly heat the foil lettering and most likely it will peel off.

    the day I got the DI from best buy I felt something snag in my pocket a little bit, when I took the phone out, the T was already half way off. I tried to press it back down, but it looked weird so I just took it off.

    so my phone lasted about 2 hours before one of the letters came off

    here's what it looks like...
    This is what I saw yesterday...just as I was showing it off to an iPhoner...had to flip it over...hope he didn't see it...so embarrasing...
    [​IMG]
    Then today, as I picked it up, i felt something poking at my hand...
    [​IMG]
    So I had to try to take it off, flatten it out, and glue it back on =[
    [​IMG]
    It's on there...but it looks all mangled. *sigh* What kind of company can't even make their logo stay on the phone?

    Highly doubt HTC made the case.

    This might be true, but if a few other people on this forum, and atleast one other person on the web (googled) have had this happen, I feel like it's something that they should have caught during testing. I dunno, it's just kinda annoying...might end up taking them off entirely...but!... shiiiinnyyyyy.....

    That's what I would probably do... then paint it.

    Ohh man...I'd probably mess that up sooooo bad. Right now it's hiding behind a silicone case...so you can't tell.. Shhhhh! Don't tell the fanbois

    Wanted to update, after contacting HTC support, and a few days of waiting, and conversing, they're going to send me a new backplate. On my current, I've already removed the shiny logo, because the [slightly] mangled h bothered me too much. But they say it'll take like 2 weeks to get to me... :/

    Who did you contact and what did you say? I had the same issue and I am wondering what I should do to get it fixed. Let me know any info that could help me get this done as well. Thanks! :D

    Yeah I lost my H already. I can tell the T isn't too far behind it. I don't really care though.

    I had the same issue around day 3 of having the phone and I called HTC, they said that they would not have extra parts for 3 weeks and asked me to go into Verizon and ask for the back of a phone that had been returned. Verizon had no issues and did just that. While I was there I got the black silicone case to stop the issue from happening in the future.

    I tried this, but my Verizon has been out of stock with no returns since I had the problem...
     
  18. That sucks. Luckily it hasn't happen to me. Will be buying a case to prevent this though.

    Lost my h also. Went to the verizon store and they said they would give me a new one IF they had one. None in the warehouse either. Told me to call back daily. At this point, I'm hoping the T and C come off so it looks normal again

    Does it really look bad with it off? I'm not too considered if mine peels off because I assume that it looks fine regardless.
