Metal flaking off buttons


Nov 12, 2009

Yesterday afternoon I was putting my Hero down on my desk, and noticed a little piece of something between my fingertips. It was a tiny piece of metal. I looked down at my phone and realized it was a piece of the metal overlay from my end key. Not cool! So, I'll be reloading apps, syncing contacts, etc. today with my new phone. It will probably take me a week or two just to get it back the way I had it.

FYI... Cellular South, not Sprint.

Anyone else seeing this? I know of one other person on Cellular South with this problem. There are not many of us compared to Sprint users, so I assume this will pop up eventually.
