Soft Touch Peeling Off
Is anyone else experiencing the Soft Touch peeling off the back of their DROID? On the bottom of a DROID are two beveled edges that act the feet would on a Storm 9530. Like table top feet I guess.
I've seen others post about heavy scuffing and scratching due to various cases but I haven't seen anyone mention this - if this is a repeat post I apologize in advance!
Verizon shipped me out a new one and boy, oh, boy was I lucky to. It was the 30th day of the 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee! Otherwise I would've been stuck with a refurbished DROID or worse, keeping a DROID with the Soft Touch peeling off.
Lastly, I'm due to receive it Wednesday or Thursday, will it ship with the 2.1 update?
Sorry for the rambling but THANK YOU in advance!

I would just stick with a pouch.. but no, mine are all good. btw, I dont think that verizon has any actual refurbished units at this point. They have not been out long enough yet.Droid---[ROM] Bugless Beast V1.0, Nextheme, Bekit 800mhz kernel!

I also use the sena case and no peeling.

Sena Elega here, and no peeling. (knock on wood) I could see where it could happen if the phone saw repeated friction on spots with that coating though. I'm actually running a techskin on the back of mine to make it easier to case and decase. So most of my soft touch is covered anyway.
Wow, thank you al for replying! I'm getting my new one on Wednesday. What's funny is I bought the case Verizon sells on their Accessories page and I never take it out.
Before I became disabled the company I worked for actually invented Soft-Touch and I actually was the original "tester" for it so I presonally know this is totally out of character for this coating.
It happeded to battery door to (but I had to PAY for my replacement battery door) but you can replace the battery door not the area with the beveled "table top" edges.
Thank you for all the information.
