    I noticed today that the gold coating somehow is gone from my camera button. Anyone else have this problem? I could really care less but I can't believe that this would happen so soon on a phone that cost 600 dollars retail.

    that's odd. I never heard of any problems with the gold coming off.

    if it bugs you that much, maybe verizon can help you switch it out.

    no problems here.

    I never use the button, always use the touch screen button. But I imagine they'd let you replace it if you wished as it shouldn't wear off within the amount of time it's been in use.

    Also, question, do you use a case protector? I'm just wondering if it got worn down from coming in and out of your pocket with no protector around it.

    Mine's looking good here, Luckily I got a case that covers my side buttons so I really dont have to worry about it peeling off.

    I dont really care if it came off or not... I'll probably paint it black now to match all the other soft buttons on the phone.

    I had the same issue with the button but wound up swapping out the phone because of another issue. The first thing I did was coat the button with clear nail Polish on the new one. The gold on the button is holding up great now.

    For those of you with issues with the gold chipping off, you should really file a complaint with the 611 number. Large companies maintain a complaint log and if they see a trend, they'll let the manufacturer know things are not up to spec.
