    If you'll recall, the power button, volume rocker, micro usb port as well as backplate were all the infamous red color, prior to the Incredible's release . . . .
    A few of us actually liked the uniqueness of the red backplate and photos of a version of the phone were even leaked, sporting a black backplate & red buttons . . . .

    I noticed yesterday that the micro USB port trim (currently black) has a little piece of the plastic chipped away. The interesting thing I noticed is that, below the black, I can see a hint of the red.

    Has anyone else noticed this? anyone that dropped their phone maybe?

    Just thought I'd throw this out there to see if anyone else can confirm. . . . . personally, I'd prefer red accents for the three areas.

    Yeah I saw early pictures of it with the red accents. I love the color red and would have loved to have seen the accents actually make it to this phone. Too bad they did away with them...

    Now that you mentioned it, I see two red spots on the black piece of plastic. It's right under the metal contact for the USB port. One small spot is on the left side and the other is a little longer and it is the towards center right.

    There was someone on here not too long ago that was selling a product that added red accents to most of what you mentioned via adhesive film (like screen protector material I think). I think they may have been chased off by some of the local friendlies, but a search may turn it up for you.

    I remember that post. They had all sorts of colors, and overlays to make it look like an iPhone, which pissed a lot of people off. They were vinyl stickers more or less.

    Just keep in mind the light and proximity sensors on either side of the logo.

    When the rocker/power overlays are available, I may go ahead and place an order. I'm skeptical as to whether or not they will stay on, but I might give it a try anyways.
    Not a huge fan of the "body kits" though . . . I'd definitely go with a clear one if there was a way to make it contour the back and completely cover the phone.

    Also, I lightly scraped away some more of the damaged area, to reveal more red, so I supose the black can/will wear off completely . . . I haven't tried on the power & rocker buttons yet, but I may try in a descrete place, covered by the battery cover.

    Meh... I prefer it all black. I wish the speaker grill was black too.
