    Default Cosmetic Issue - Black Scraping Off around Brim

    Is anyone else having the black frame around the front of the phone scrape off?It's bad around the corners, and on the right side of the phone.

    I've never dropped my phone, and It stays in my pocket most of the time, but always by itself (no keys, coins, lighters etc.)

    Sorry, no problems here. I've depress my phone on its computer corner, once, but otherwise, same treatment... In a pocket all by its lonesome. Looks like the day I got it.

    Can you post a picture of what your talking about? My problem that I just noticed is dust particle under the screen in 2 sections and another spot that may have a dead pixel. I guess I will wait and see if it gets worse. Doesn't really bother me right now.

    My front is ok. But the plastic back is starting to flake on the side. It has some kind of thin clear coating the is starting to come off.

    Mine has some of the black paint rubbing off...as the original poster does. Under it seems to be the aluminum. Just around the edges at the top.

    I have this Sharpie marker that gives great touch ups.

    You'll get better quality from Jackson's Sharpie.

    I have not experienced this yet, but honestly I don't care about cosmetic damage. As long as there are no dead pixels, the screen is not cracked and the hardware and software buttons function properly, I could not care less how "pretty" my phone is. I just means I'm using it, and whatever battle scars are incurred give it character.

    I have had the problem with my paint scraping around the frontface rim as well. Its all because we dont use a case for the most part. See if you/r wife/girl has black nail polish as putting a light coat of this seems to work better for me as touch-up paint along the way

    Mine has done the same thing and has been in a case since I bought it and left best buy. I kinda assumed it was from being in a case.

    I use a case but no screen protector, although I may get one soon. No cosmetic damage on mine at all. Looks brand new. Like another poster said though, as long as there is no screen damage and everything works correctly a little wear and tear is normal. If necessary I think I have some black nail polish
    Please thank me if I have helped!

    I've Sharpied mine too, but it rubs right off again. It's odd because Sharpie ink is supposed to stick to anything and not come off.

    This is one of the drawbacks of using a case. Hard particles get underneath and scratch it really bad. I had a really great case for a Iphone 3GS and the back was destroyed from this happening. I have a Pouch that I got from HTCPedia with a very soft nap leather inside that seems like it protecting the finish very well so far after about 3 weeks with it.

    Another method is to use some model car paint like a flat black and a very fine brush like a #0 for touch ups. One thing I learned in my model car building days is to take a little vaseline and lightly put it where you don't want the pain to go.

    I had a perfect phone up until a week ago. I was over at a friend's house, and my phone was sitting on her coffee table. I asked her to hand it to me, and bam, she drops it face down on the terrazzo floors. Scratched every single corner, but the screen is OK. I could have killed her.
